Other than the 300h hybrid, Lexus has introduced the 2019 Lexus ES F-Sport model.
The UAE market welcomes the brand-new 2019 Lexus ES thanks to Lexus’s UAE partner, Al-Futtaim. Al-Futtaim has a rich history of providing UAE customers with only the most comfortable and most luxurious vehicles and through the seventh generation Lexus ES it is going to further strengthen its roots.
“The first generation of this best-selling sedan debuted in 1989, and over the past 30 years, Lexus ES has evolved to constitute, thanks to its supreme quality and unbeatable dependability, a key staple in many houses and fleets,” said Mohamed Maktari, Managing Director of Al-Futtaim Lexus.
The 2019 Lexus ES gets all the modern safety and entertainment features, an unbeatable coupe-styled design and an impressive performance peaking engine.
The ES has also received the much-needed inclusions to its lineup including the 300h hybrid sedan. The 300h runs with the help of a gasoline engine and two electric motors, delivering 24.1 km mileage in one liter of petrol while a full tank can last for 1,204 km, which is exceptional. Buyers will save 80% in terms of fuel and help save
