The all-new model also introduces hybrid technology to the range with the highly efficient 2.5-litre hybrid drivetrain on ES 300h; also available with a powerful 3.5-litre V6 petrol drivetrain in ES 350.

The ES Line offers leading levels of standard specification teamed with generous levels of space and refinement – including over one metre of rear leg room.

Drivers will also appreciate the greater focus on driving dynamics, with its all-new platform, steering and suspension combining to offer a refined and comfortable yet confidence-inspiring drive.

Lexus Australia chief executive Sean Hanley said that the reintroduction of the ES Line was a direct result of consumer demand.

“The all-new ES presents Lexus with a fantastic opportunity to re-engage with existing loyal Lexus customers while tempting many vehicle purchasers – some of whom will be first-time luxury buyers,” Mr Hanley said.

“After a seven-year hiatus, we are pleased to offer ES to Australian customers and our strong pre-orders support our decision to bring ES back.

“With its bold new look, capable driving dynamics, superior specification and space teamed with Lexus’ undeniable customer care and support, the ES is set to win a spot on many new driveways,” he said.

The four-model range will feature Luxury and Sports Luxury variants for each powertrain, with pricing starting from $63,000^.
