As per the company, the seventh-gen Lexus ES 300h offers segment-leading comfort level, which is in line with the company's spirit of hospitality or 'omotenashi.'

Speaking on the design of the latest Lexus ES, Yasuo Kajino, Project Chief Designer, has said -

The ES has always been an elegant luxury sedan. For this generation, we have added daring design elements that challenge the traditional expectations of buyers.

The Lexus ES 300h features a sharply-styled front-end, with the newest iteration of the company's signature spindle grille. While this is in line with the path set by the LC coupe and LS flagship, the ES gets a couple of unique elements like the vertical grille pattern and the satin-plated trim. In side profile, the Lexus ES has a dynamic shape, whose characteristics include a low hood line, a low roofline remains, and a long shoulder line that runs between the top of the front wheel arch to the corner of the trunk. At the rear, the Lexus ES 300h gets a sharply chiselled facade, with wraparound LED taillamps that feature a distinctive three-dimensional, L- shaped design.

The seventh generation Lexus ES 300h is underpinned by the company's Global Architecture – K (GA-K). Powering the mid-size luxury sedan is a 2.5-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine that works in conjunction with the fourth-generation Lexus Hybrid Drive System. Together they deliver a maximum power output of 218 PS and a fuel efficiency of 22.37 km/l.
