A Product of Mastery. That’s Lexus’ new marketing tagline. And you know what? The 2019 ES looks the business.

From Lexus:

“Sporting a new coupe-like silhouette, artfully designed interior and dynamic driving capabilities, the 2019 ES boasts the most advanced technologies, including Lexus Safety System+ 2.0 standard and Amazon Alexa® connectivity, enabling inside the vehicle and outside the vehicle integration. In a Lexus first, the ES will feature Apple CarPlay® compatibility.”

We think Lexus has mastered the front grill on the new ES, as it seems to be the most organic implementation yet.

Ours was an F SPORT. What does that net you? Well, mostly appearance upgrades, but also the ability to select drive modes.

So, an ES350 F SPORT with 302 horsepower and the ability to put it into Sport S+ drive mode?

OK, Lexus. OK. We approve.  Read David's counterpoint here.

I agree with David's point. Never goes far enough to be sporty.. It's a Camry in a high end suit and it's just not a true athlete underneath. 

I mostly came to comment cause I chuckled at the first photo. The Texas plate caught my eye and then i realized the photo was taken during the Texas auto writers event, cause they asked the local SCCA region to staff it and I was in the meeting where it was discussed.

When I found it on their media site I knew I had struck gold.
