The Lexus ES 250 marks the entry into the ES family which includes the fuel-efficient ES 350, ES 300h, and hybrids. The ES 350 is more powerful and costs less, but the ES 350 has an all-wheel drive. Lexus has added two new trim levels for the ES line-up in 2024: F Sport Design and F Sport Handling. However, the ES 250 can only accept the F Sport Design. It has a sportier style exterior, but no upgraded front seats or sport-tuned shocks.
The new Lexus Interface infotainment will probably add wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto smartphones,, and a “Hey Lexus’ voice assistant. The new system eliminates the hard-to-use touchscreen, which allows for a more modern design of the center console. The ES 250 is a luxury mid-size sedan that offers a high level of comfort, despite its low price. Lexus’ reliability will also help to attract buyers.
The ES250 comes with a four-cylinder 2.5-liter engine that produces 203 horsepower and is equipped with all-wheel-drive as standard. The ES350 trim is equipped with a 3.5 liter V-6 engine, which produces 302 horsepower. It’s governed by an eight-speed transmission that delivers power to the wheels. The ES350h comes in a variety of trims. All are powered by a hybrid powertrain with 225 horsepower. A CVT and front-wheel drive come standard.
This Lexus sedan shows the smooth handling and comfortable ride that luxury car buyers prefer. F Sport is a trim level that offers a more sporty handling experience, but without sacrificing the appeal of the car. It comes with larger wheels and retuned suspension. Despite these improvements, despite the ES’s athleticism, it is still less than the BMW 5 Series.
The ES cabin is a luxurious space for passengers, with a stylish asymmetrical dash and high-quality materials. The seats are comfortable and offer plenty of legroom. The cabin, in particular, is very quiet, even at highway speeds. The ES offers 17.0 cubic feet in the trunk for both gas-only models and hybrids, which is more than the Volvo S90 (14.0 cubic foot) or Acura TLX (14 cubic feet). The ES does not have rear folding seats. Lexus has a hard time accommodating large cargoes.
ES is known for its comfort and alienation. The seats in the front are supportive and sturdy. They’re also easy to get into and out of. Although flat and comprehensive, the rear seats are equally comfortable. The rider can sit either in front or back for long periods without feeling fatigued.
The ES platform provides a more comfortable ride than a sports car, as it dampens road bumps without causing force to the cabin. The car was very quiet, but there was some wind noise. This was more than what we had expected. Engine noise is noticeable.
We can also confirm that the upcoming Lexus ES 2024 will likely have the same safety features as the 2023 model. Lexus, as with all Lexus trims adds standard security features. Other features include driver assistance, cyclist detection, and automated emergency braking.

Lexus updated its infotainment for the 2023 year model. It is therefore likely that the 2024 Lexus ES infotainment will be unchanged. The 2024 Lexus ES will have only a handful of features that are new. The 2023 Lexus ES’s base trims will come standard with an 8.0-inch touchscreen display. A larger 12.3-inch touchscreen is also standard on the top trims. All trims come standard with features like a Wi-Fi hotspot and a Lexus premium sound system that includes 10 speakers.
