Its dimensions, however (Body 4 length, width and height  900/1820/1450), and the fact that lends the platform from the business sedan Toyota Camry berline, enabling this car to serve as an alternative also for the higher class car buyers (Audi A6, Volvo S80, Jaguar XF etc).

Under the hood, the Lexus offers for the new ES available in the local market two propulsion units: a 2.5-liter petrol engine L4 that develops a maximum power of 184 HP and a 3.5-liter V6 petrol engine able to provide to the driver maximum 277 HP and 346 Nm.
