Lexus Australia has added a new F Sport variant to its ES300h sedan range, as well as an equipment boosting Enhancement Pack for select models.
Pricing has been raised by $600 for the Luxury and Sports Luxury variants, which now come in at $60,488 and $75,488 before on-road costs, respectively.
Meanwhile, the mid-spec F Sport comes in at $69,755, and boasts a number of unique features including a mesh grille with jet black plating, a sharper bumper profile and rear garnish, as well as sporty 19-inch alloy wheels.
The F Sport also benefits from triple-beam LED headlights and – for the first time in Australia – Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) with five selectable modes.
Standard kit has been raised for the base Luxury to now include four sonar sensors across the front bumper and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
The Luxury can be equipped with the new Enhancement Pack option, bringing its pricetag to $68,875, adding a surround-view camera, blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert and 18-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, the Luxury with Enhancement Pack features leather-accented seats, ventilated front seats, driver memory settings, a 14-way power adjustable driver seat and an electric rear sunshade.
The new F Sport can also be optioned with an Enhancement Pack, priced from $73,755, this time adding a 17-speaker Mark Levinson audio system, heated steering wheel and a power back door with kick sensor.
Stand out kit on the range-topping Sports Luxury includes semi-aniline leather-accented seats, tri-zone climate control, rear door sunshades, and a heated rear seat with power recline function.
In all variants, power comes from a 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine matched with an electric motor to produce 160kW and 221Nm.
The updated Lexus ES300h range will hit dealerships this week, with 12 exterior colours to choose from.
