So the Lexus ES is out and soon to arrive in South Africa as well and the car seems to be a hit with international reviewers. One review that got our attention is by the guys at The Smoking Tire where they had taken the Lexus ES350 F-Sport for a ride and were left rather impressed. Let’s do a bit of a recap, the ES is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 petrol engine producing 225kW and 362N.m via the front wheels using an 8-speed Direct Shift automatic transmission. Driven by Matt Farah in this review and seemingly impressed, he goes on to say “I’m not sure i’ve been in another modern car that is actually quieter than this, if you remove electric cars from the equation”.
So the guys at Lexus studio and engineering should be proud then, until we drive one ourselves we’ll take this review as positive litmus test.
