Lexus ES Gets Refreshed For 2024 And Its Coming Here

The top-selling sedan globally in the Lexus lineup is the ES sedan

Yes, are you surprised? The ES might not be Lexus best selling sedan here in Malaysia as its fully imported status pushes its selling price higher than its rivals.

However, in markets where there is a fair and even taxation system, the ES takes a healthy sales position against its rivals from Europe. Rivals like the BMW 5 Series, Audi A6 and Mercedes E-Class have similar dimensions and comfort features, but it’s the build quality and cabin comfort that gives the Lexus ES a slight edge.

This latest ES sees minor changes for the 2024 model year which was teased three weeks ago. This updated ES includes a new available Technology Package and 18-inch wheels with Vapor Chrome finish that come standard for the Ultra Luxury grade.

The 2024 Lexus ES continues to cater to a diversity of lifestyles with three available powerful engines, all-wheel drive capability and two F SPORT models.

Meanwhile, the current ES is sold in Malaysia in three variants with prices from RM295k for the ES 250 Premium to RM345k for the ES 250 F Sport.

Based on the ES features with the Premium Package, the F SPORT Design is offered on all three powertrains (ES 350, ES 250 AWD and ES 300h) and adds F SPORT 19-inch split five-spoke alloy wheels with a Gloss Black finish and F SPORT exterior styling, including a unique front bumper, grille surround and rear spoiler.
