The Lexus brand has always been known for its comfort-oriented models, its refinement and the overall reliability of its vehicle lineup. For a long time, when you wanted a comfortable luxury car, there were very few alternatives that were comparable to a Lexus. That said, Lexus has tried to change its image somewhat in recent years by offering sportier models that offer a lot more responsiveness and impressive performance. On the other hand, you can still get that comfortable sedan in the Lexus lineup with the 2015 Lexus ES.

Now, let’s start of by saying that the ES is certainly a responsive vehicle that can be pushed into a turn without giving the driver any unwanted nervousness. On the other hand, if you want great performance on a track, you turn to the Lexus IS or RC. The ES is really for those who want a very reliable and very comfortable car that will give any library a run for its money when it comes to silence. That is what the ES does so well, and why it remains to this day popular with buyers.

The 2015 Lexus ES is offered in two versions, the ES 350 and the ES 300h. Both offer decent levels of performance and entertainment, but the ES 300h is for those who want the fuel economy associated with hybrid models as their primary requirement. Powered by a four-cylinder 2.5L Atkinson-Cycle engine combined with an electric motor, the ES 300h offers plenty of power without punishing the driver when it comes to performance. It offers three driving modes including Sport, Eco, and EV. EV mode puts the focus on the electric motor and optimizes its input in order to ensure that you get the very best fuel-economy. In EV mode, the electric engine will handle on its own plenty of the power duties which means that you are not using the gasoline engine. Eco mode and Sport mode vary the input of each engine to offer either a more efficient drive, or a sportier one.

The ES 350 is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that delivers 268 horsepower. The engine is designed to run as smoothly and as quietly as possible in order to improve overall passenger comfort. In other words, you barely hear the engine when it is on or when passing or accelerating.

Inside the ES, owners get a luxurious interior that is plenty spacious with seats that are perfect for long drives on the highway. Everything is easy to understand and well-designed using quality materials. To learn more about the 2015 Lexus ES, contact Lexus of Kingston today!
