The Lexus ES250 will launch at the same time at the Beijing and New York Auto Shows, however it seems that the ES250 is eager to appear on the internet ahead of its multiple auto show airings and has leaked its own way out.
The ES250 has undergone major changes both internally and externally, the new face is of course courtesy of the ES250′s bigger cousin, the GS range, and mimics the ‘X’ style grill quite well, the dashboard has undergone the biggest changes from the older model. As the cars name plate suggests, under the hood a 2.5L V6 engine is doing its duty sending power to the rear wheels. A cream interior has been introduced for 2012/13 with, the ES is having a greater focus on business luxury but with the 2.5 V6 giving relatively frugal operating costs. How much will it cost when it launches in April in China? We can guess around the 400,000rmb and rising area which should give the car strong competition against the BMW 5-series and other German branded mid sized cars.
