2013 Lexus ES 350 & ES 300h Live Photo Gallery

2013 Lexus ES 350 & ES 300h

It’s been a little over a week since the 2013 Lexus ES debuted at the New York Auto Show, and I’m just now getting through my photos — I’ve divided my first set in two, with the ES 350 & ES 300h each with their own gallery.

We saw this with the new GS, but I like that Lexus no longer styles the hybrid versions differently than the conventional models — with the exception of the blue hybrid badging and the rear exhaust, the ES 350 & ES 300h exteriors are essentially the same.

(I’ll be posting more photos from NYIAS throughout this week — next up are some photos of the ES interior.)

  1. Kinda like the distinctions. Oh well. Looks like the lights don't get blue tinting either. Anyways, if the two variants have identical MSRP, the sales numbers shall be very interesting!
  2. I agree with you KREW.I like the idea of both versions looking the same.It's nice to be able to get great MPG & still have a car that looks sporty or normal. I like the new design but I find that this wheel design looks a bit 'busy'.Oh well,at least the wheels are not a 3,4 or 8 spoke design.(they really get on my nerves)
  3. The hybrid has other wheels available.  Surprised they missed the opportunity to show them, and separate the two models..... BD
    • The 17" hybrid wheels were on the ES 300h at the actual Lexus display, but not at the debut. Seemed strange to me as well, especially considering the above wheel isn't even available on the hybrid.
  4. Dissapointed that the hybrid doesn't get the LED headlamps. even the HS and CT has them...
  5. Dare i say it? It looks better than the new GS, more balanced design imo. It oozes luxury and style Well done, really hope we get this here in Europe
  6. I don't like the manner in which the grille meets the hood.
  7. GS DEFINITELY looks better, but that's the way it should be Cars should get better as they get more expensive..... BD
  8. Altogether, the grill reminds me strongly of the second generation LS, prior to the redesign in '97. I like it.
  9. The fronts are awefull , no specific design.  Lines going in all directions, holes of different shapes,  lights all over the place.  It looks like a design by a committee and each one got his little thing included.   Keep it.  There are much cleaner and  nicer designs available. Corrie
