2018 / 2019 7th Generation Lexus ES

Recommended Posts

but hybrid road tax is high... it combines motor and engine capacities to charge u.. 

last time my RX400h is an example.. if i can remember correctly .. i paid like 3k+ per year.  

 

Lexus ES300h road tax is $1,784/annum.

 

For current gen ES300h, it is under neutral band.

What is Lexus thinking? 

 

There was a reason why they used the FWD platform in the ES to slot it beneath the RWD GS.....to attract those upgrading from the camry/accord but no not needing the sporty performance/handling of the GS.

Swee . Like baby LS .

 

I wonder if its gonna be RWD or still FWD . 

 

Swee swee, I like the look also, when I saw the LS, I was impress and this one like you say is look alike.

 

For now FWD, I heard they may come out with a AWD model to compliment the GS feel.

 

Donno good or bad, I heard news also that they may turn back from above plan and maintain GS and ES for other market except for Russia and or Europe.

this one bobian. same across the board for all cars in SG.

agree. Toyota could do with more obvious differences in the interior between Lexus and Toyota to "atas-ify" the car.

 

Bro, the interior for both Toyota and Lexus are already big difference le, that is why when my earlier preference to just drive the Camry and backside itchy go over sit inside the ES and fell in love.

 

For this new ES model, I think they uses the interior design platform similar to those newer models like RX which looks similar to it.

Man....if this model is released in late 2019 in Singapore and they have the AWD model in 2020, it's good time for me to make an upgrade :grin:

 

I was thinking if the RX by the time I am ready to change is my referred look, can consider.

 

With recent Saga over CnC.......Bro Soya will later say I am BM's most loyal customer again. [smash]

The avalon is already out in USA. Just the same car but more luxury going up to lexus.

 

The new TNGA platform is a big improvement over the older platform. So it's going to be marked improvement in driveablity.

Let’s hope the 300h boot is larger than a hatchback this time....

i think all the newer hybrid cars have batteries under the rear seats already, that includes the new camry hybrid. So should be the same as avalon.

Confirmed the new Camry hybrid will have the battery under the rear passenger seat.

Not sure whether it performs as well as the ES300H.

Is the difference only on the finishin? Performance wise exactly the same?
