The Lexus ES 2022 minor facelift finally made its world debut at the recent Shanghai Auto Show. As the best-selling Sedan model of Lexus, this time the ES has only received a minor upgrade on the exterior, and this time the original manufacturer has also upgraded the safety systems and handling of the vehicle to make it perform better than the current model! The 2022 ES is a new model.
The 2022 ES is not a big change on the exterior, first of all, the LED headlights have been redesigned (still divided into two designs: normal and top version), but the magnitude of the changes is not very large, and then the design of the water tank cover stripes have also been optimized, but because the changes are small, so if you can not distinguish the difference between the front and rear of the facelift, then it is actually justifiable.
The interior is basically the same as the original design, except that the central touch screen console has become very large and supports touch functions, which was not available before the minor facelift, and Apple Carplay and Android are also standard equipment. As for the Lexus Safety System, it has been upgraded to version 2.5, with upgraded sensors and camera accuracy. The forward collision warning system can better detect oncoming cars or pedestrians when turning, and the emergency evasive function has been added.
The engine is still the same as the original configuration, including 2.0L natural gas engine, 2.5L natural gas engine, 2.5L hybrid engine and 3.5L V6 natural gas engine. The following are the engine outputs.
- ES200: 171 Hp/208 Nm, Direct-Shift CVT transmission
- ES250: 204 Hp/247 Nm, 8-speed automatic transmission
- ES300h: 210 Hp/300 Nm, ECVT transmission
- ES350: 302 Hp/362 Nm, 8-speed manual transmission
In addition, the ES350 F-Sport version will get the Dynamic Handling Package, which will have active suspension with 650 levels of adjustment, and enhanced steering feedback, brakes, shocks, etc. to give better handling and comfort.
