Say no more folks because the 2013 Lexus ES 250 has landed in China, save and sound, and undisguised at all. In short, the luxury sedan which has the resemblance with 2013 GS is bare naked. Speaking of the GS, just about to be off the topic, the 2013 ES 250 sedan is oftenly refers as the GS, but taking closer look will help to see the real deal of the vehicle. The reason why the miss-recognize happens is because Lexus applies the new hourglass grille across its entire models, so it is pretty understandable that we might refer the vehicle as other Lexus’ models.
So, how can we know that we are looking at the 2013 Lexus ES 250? Check out the headlamps as the autoblog.com mentioned that the row of LED running lights are very similar – we almost type “same” – with GS, IS, and of course, the CT. Check out the back of this luxury sedan and we will find another resemblance – again? – with GS although the design lines are a bit subtle. We don’t get the interior photo, but our aforementioned source hinted that the inside of the not-so-worth-waiting 2013 ES 250 sedan is – no need to surprise – the copycat from the… what else folks, the GS!
The 2013 Lexus ES 250 sedan has two-tiered dashboard which consists of large navigation or infotainment screen on the top. On the engine, this luxury sedan is powered by nothing else than the 2.5L V6 which well, the same engine on the GS 250. For the US market, the 2013 ES 250 sedan could be available in 3.5L V6 and probably new hybrid model too. Our conclusion is, the ES 250 is the twin brother of the GS models.
