The 2020 Lexus ES continues the brand’s commitment to crafting vehicles with heightened excitement, emotion and passion.
Building upon last year’s redesign, the 2020 ES will offer updates to the infotainment that include the addition of Android Auto (for 2020 models produced in fall of 2019 or later) and the addition of Blind Spot Monitor w/RCTA as a standalone option.
New Dimension of the 2020 Lexus ES
A key element of the redesigned ES is the all-new Global Architecture–K (GA-K) platform. More than just an engineering achievement, the GA-K platform gave the designers the flexibility to create an ES that’s as visibly striking as it is enjoyable to drive.
The result is an ES sedan that is longer (+2.6 in), lower (-0.2 in) and wider (+1.8 in.) than before with wheels that have been pushed closer to the corners thanks to a two-inch longer wheelbase and wider tracks front (+0.4 in) and rear (+1.5 in).
Its stance and proportions reflect its newfound performance capabilities and give the ES the kind of eye-catching appearance that will make owners take a second look as they walk away.
Project Chief Designer, Yasuo Kajino, describes the look of the ES as “provocative elegance,” Kajino says:
“The ES has always been an elegant luxury sedan. For this generation, we have added daring design elements that challenge the traditional expectations of buyers.”
The provocative elegance of the design starts up front with the latest iteration of the brand’s signature grille.
It follows the path set forth by the LC coupe and LS flagship, yet adds individual cues that are unique to the ES like the vertical grille pattern and satin plated trim. That theme is repeated at each corner of the bumper to give the ES a wide, planted look that promotes strength and stability.
