Examining the 2013 Lexus ES Ambient Lighting

Check out this video demonstrating the nighttime ambient lighting of the 2013 Lexus ES:

The lighting appears similar to the fourth-generation GS, which has a very pleasant cabin glow at night — just another way the ES has been improved over the current generation.

(I’ve really enjoyed the videos that Lexus has put out for the new ES — every single one has been super-informative.)

    One common problem i found with the Lexus is that not every button is backlit, unlike an Audi or Mercedes.

      But Germans usually use harsh unpleasant colors like red. Lexus uses soft colors like white or green or blue. I was in my friend’s Q7 once, and I loved the car, but the lighting just bothered me.

        But it just looks cool at night!

        …And i did like what i saw in the above video.

        Yeah, the red lighting makes me feel irritated — I want a nice, calm feeling at night.

        Agreed. Red, especially at night can cause eye fatigue and strain.

        Lexus uses a natural colour that mimics daylight as your eyes are use to seeing this type of light on a regular basis.

        I personally prefer White lights , I hate lights of other color … they doesn’t don’t seems right in cabin , Yellow would do good though , but White is the best .
