The fully-imported luxury sedan cruiser from Japan will arrive as an entry-level Premium (est. RM299,888) or range-topping Luxury (est. RM332,888) while being accompanied by a five-year unlimited mileage warranty.
Power will come from a 2.5-litre naturally-aspirated engine mated to an eight-speed Direct-Shift automatic gearbox and there will be seven exterior colours with two interior options for choice.
Depending on model variant, trim and equipment for the ES250 - probably for the Luxury variant, can include a 10-way powered front seat, powered reclining rear seats, tri-zone climate controls, heads-up display, 12.3-inch Electro Multi-vision Display and a panoramic view monitor to name a few.
However, both variants will be equipped with the Lexus Safety System + (LSS+), previously seen in the recent re-introduction of the NX 300 and will include the likes of Lane Tracing Assist (LTA), Lane Departure Alert (LDA), Pre-Collision System (PCS) and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) with Stop and Go Function.
It will also feature three Bi-Beam LED headlights with the Luxury version getting Adaptive High Beam System (AHS) that channels the appropriate amount of light to darker areas of the road without blinding oncoming drivers.
