Lexus ES Revealed Before Beijing Debut

2019 Lexus ES teaser

2019 Lexus ES teaser

But the good news is that Lexus has released the first official photo of the new ES, which it says has been "transformed for the world".

Adopting the Japanese marque's latest design language, the ES features an aggressive, wide-mouthed spindle grille that features pinched vertical bars instead of the mesh look seen on the LC coupe and new LS sedan.

Although just 260 ES sedans found a home in Australia a year ago, it's a massive vehicle for Lexus worldwide.

We could be forced to wait until the Beijing Motor Show reveal on April 25 for substantial info on that transformation, but based on what we already suspect, the coming ES has big britches to fill.

Under the skin, we're expecting the ES to share its Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) underpinnings with the Toyota Avalon offered in North America.

The outgoing ES had a 2.5-litre petrol hybrid drivetrain similar to the IS, though transverse-mounted and front-wheel drive like the CT. Drivetrains for the new auto are unconfirmed, but the newcomer could feature a version of the next RAV4's 2.5-litre hybrid system, and potentially also the 177bhp 2.0-litre hybrid setup from the next Auris.

The new Lexus ES - heading for the United Kingdom to replace the current GS - is revealed in a single image by Lexus ahead of its debut in Beijing this month.

Lexus promised "the unexpected" with the new ES, and rumors of AWD have accompanied the news of "a range of advanced gasoline and hybrid powertrains".

"The GS will stay in our lineup when we introduce the ES this fall".
