Lexus ES300h 2019 pricing and specs confirmed

The seventh-generation ES mid-size sedan is exclusively powered by a hybrid powertrain.

The Luxury kicks things off at $59,888 plus on-road costs, up to $74,888 for the Sports Luxury.

This translates to a $3862 price reduction for the entry-level variant and a price hike of $2978 for the range topper.
