Euro NCAP has crowned the all-new, seventh generation Lexus ES as 2018 Best in Class model in the categories “Hybrid and Electric” and “Large Family Car”.

The Lexus ES was tested earlier this year at the 2018 Euro NCAP vehicle safety test where it achieved a 5-star rating and an outstanding average score of 86.25, making it one of the highest scores of all cars tested under the new, more stringent 2018 test regime including cyclist protection.

The new ES integrates the latest version of Lexus Safety System+, the brand’s advanced package of safety technologies. This new system provides new capabilities and expands the driving scenarios in which it can provide added protection for driver and passengers and help prevent an accident from happening.

Additional features include daytime cyclist detection as part of the comprehensive Pre-Collision System (PCS), as well as night-time pedestrian detection. Lexus Co-Drive, combining Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and Lane Tracing Assist, provides SAE level-2 automated driving support – aiming at enhancing safety while the driver remains in control of the vehicle.

This is an excellent achievement for Lexus, and makes the Lexus ES a serious competitor in the Luxury Saloon market. Customer deliveries of the all-new Lexus ES are expected from January 2019.
