Lexus is introducing a new Premium Edition model for the ES 300h range in the UK market, adding more value to its hybrid mid-size sedan.
The new Lexus ES Premium Edition offers extensive additional features that are worth more than £3,000 but it carries just a £550 premium over the entry-level SE trim level it’s based on. Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert are now standard across the range of the Lexus ES.

Standard features include 18-inch alloy wheels, a 12.3-inch infotainment system with navigation and DVD player, a heated steering wheel, a wireless smartphone charger, a heated windshield, and more. Prices for the new Lexus ES 300h Premium Edition start from £35,750.
Lexus has also added more content to the Tech and Safety Pack, which is offered as an option with ES F Sport models. The pack now includes the 12.3-inch infotainment system with navigation, along with “triple-eye” LED headlights, a heated steering wheel, and a wireless smartphone charger.
The F Sport variant of the Lexus ES comes equipped with performance dampers, an adaptive variable suspension, F Sport exterior and interior styling details, a set of 19-inch alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, and more. A 2021 Lexus ES 300h F Sport fitted with the Tech and Safety Pack is priced under below the £40,000 threshold for company car tax-payers, at £39,255.
At the top of the range sits the Lexus ES Takumi, which features a 17-speaker Mark Levinson sound system, a 12.3-inch infotainment system with navigation, semi-aniline leather upholstery, Shimamoku wood trim inlays, a hands-free power boot lid, and the option of digital cameras instead of side view door mirrors.
The hybrid powertrain of the 2021 Lexus ES 300h remains the same, meaning a 2.5-liter four-cylinder petrol working together with an electric motor for a combined 215 HP and a combined 60.1 mpg UK (4.7lt/100km).
The 2021 Lexus ES 300h is now on sale, with first deliveries expected to commence this October.
