Lexus will unveil the 2013 Lexus ES at this year's New York auto show on April 4, with the Japanese luxury car maker releasing a teaser image of the car.
Details remain sketchy on the sixth-generation Lexus ES, which is based on the Toyota Camry platform, but the image confirms the ES gets the Lexus signature spindle grille in line with the all-new Lexus GS. The ES is also said to offer an enhanced driving experience, also a feature of the new Lexus GS.
Despite the official teaser image, Chinese auto site xcar.com.cn photographed the entry-level ES250 in China, without camouflage.
Lexus Australia's Peter Evans told CarAdvice: “We are actively studying the ES and would strongly support a business case to bring the model to Australia, if and when it is produced as a right-hand-drive vehicle."
Currently, the Lexus ES is only produced in left-hand-drive, but if the car were produced as a right-hander, then markets such as Japan, the UK and India, would also most likely consider the model.
