The Lexus ES is back with its latest sixth generation model

These days, the suited man looks naked without a tie bar, just like how substandard he will appear if he doesn't drive around Kuala Lumpur in a Lexus ES - with police escort, no less.

The Lexus ES first saw the light of day in 1989 and has been around for six generations now.

As disheartening as it may have been missing out on the fifth generation in Singapore (only available for left-hand drive countries), the latest ES doesn't seem like it's about to disappoint.

There is a spanking new hybrid variant, too. The Lexus ES300h, as it's called, sports a 158bhp 2.5-litre twin cam Atkinson cycle petrol engine and a 105kW electric drive motor that's mated to an electronic continuously variable transmission (E-CVT).

The petrol-powered ES250 is also available at launch. Exhibiting a 2.5-litre dual VVT-i engine under the bonnet, this variant is capable of 181bhp at 6,000rpm and 235Nm of torque at 4,100rpm. While it finishes the century sprint at a slightly slower 9.8 seconds, it has an impressive fuel economy of 12.7km/L on paper.

Of course, like all Lexus, the hand-stitched finish on the dashboard of the ES is just one example of the high levels of luxury and quality evident in the car. Whether or not it's down to hardcore training and testing to achieve this perfection, one thing is for sure - the ES is all about absolute comfort and luxury.

Although Julian is satisfied driving an Austin Mini now, he hopes to own a Ford Mustang some day. Problem is he has to make it big from ToTo first.
