LEXUS SAFETY SYSTEM+

With the most comprehensive safety system ever offered on the ES, security comes standard.
2017 Lexus ES.

LEXUS ENFORM SAFETY CONNECT*

Lexus Enform Safety Connect offers you the peace of mind of knowing that Roadside Assistance* will be there when you need it most. Whether you’re involved in a collision and unable to call for help, your vehicle is stolen, or there is any other type of emergency, assistance can be sent directly to your vehicle's GPS location. Lexus Enform Safety Connect is complimentary for the first year of ownership.
Standard On: ES 350, ES 300h

BACKUP CAMERA* WITH DYNAMIC GRIDLINES

When you put the vehicle in reverse, the view from the backup camera is shown on the multimedia display in full color with dynamic gridlines to assist you with parking and other maneuvers.
Standard On: ES 350, ES 300h

INTUITIVE PARKING ASSIST*

Intuitive Parking Assist utilizes inconspicuous sensors integrated into the front and rear bumpers that are designed to detect surrounding objects. Using audible tones and an indicator on the multimedia display, the system can notify you of a detected object's location and proximity, helping with routine tasks like parallel parking.
Optional On: ES 350, ES 300h

VEHICLE PROXIMITY NOTIFICATION SYSTEM*

To help notify pedestrians and cyclists of your approach when moving at low speeds or in EV mode,* this system emits a tone from a speaker mounted near the front bumper.
Standard On: ES 300h

10-AIRBAG SYSTEM*

The front-passenger seat is designed to detect whether the seat is occupied by an adult or a child, or is vacant. In case the system detects a child or empty passenger seat, the system prevents the passenger's front, side and knee airbags from being deployed. The front passenger's airbag features two chambers, creating an indentation in the center impact area that helps to provide occupant protection in a severe frontal collision.
Standard On: ES 350, ES 300h

VEHICLE STABILITY CONTROL*

This system can detect sideslip of the wheels while cornering, and helps to control it using modulation of engine power and selective application of individual brakes. It works in conjunction with the Anti-lock Braking System and Traction Control to help improve driver control under some adverse conditions.
Standard On: ES 350, ES 300h

TRACTION CONTROL

Traction Control (TRAC) senses the onset of wheelspin, then selectively applies the brakes and automatically transfers power to the driving wheel(s) with better grip.
Standard On: ES 350, ES 300h

LED HEADLAMPS

Make your presence known even before you arrive. The unique headlamp design employs striking LEDs that not only illuminate your path, but also give a brilliant, high-contrast impression. Housed in the aggressively low front fascia, these headlamps are a bold addition to the spindle grille.
Standard On: ES 350, ES 300h

BLIND SPOT MONITOR* WITH REAR CROSS-TRAFFIC ALERT*

To help you change lanes with confidence, the available Blind Spot Monitor is designed to detect and warn you of vehicles approaching or positioned in the adjacent lanes. And for added peace of mind, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert can help you when backing out of a parking space by notifying you of vehicles approaching from either side.
Optional On: ES 350, ES 300h

CHILD RESTRAINT SEAT (CRS) TETHER ANCHOR BRACKETS

Child Restraint Seat (CRS) tether anchor brackets are included for all rear seats.
Standard On: ES 350, ES 300h
2017 Lexus ES.

WHIPLASH INJURY LESSENING* FRONT SEATBACKS

In the event of a rear-end collision, the Whiplash Injury Lessening front seatbacks are designed to push backward to deflect and absorb energy from a rear-end collision. The seats also have active headrests,* which reduce the space between the occupant's head and the headrest, limiting excessive head movement and helping to decrease the severity of whiplash-type injuries.
Standard On: ES 350, ES 300h

LED TAILLAMPS

Taking the exterior design to the next level, the LED rear combination lamps are constructed to create a powerful presence while consuming less power for greater efficiency. LED taillamps also last longer and illuminate faster than conventional bulbs, possibly giving drivers behind you more time to react to the brake lamps.
Standard On: ES 350, ES 300h

WINDSHIELD WIPER DE-ICER

To help prevent your wipers from freezing to your windshield, an available windshield wiper de-icer features embedded heating wires on the lower and left edges of the windshield.
Optional On: ES 350, ES 300h
2017 Lexus ES.

RAIN-SENSING WIPERS

In addition to the rain-sensing intermittent windshield wipers with mist cycle and de-icer, you'll also find other innovative features designed to help provide optimal visibility.
Standard On: ES 350, ES 300h

RIGID BODY STRUCTURE WITH CRUMPLE ZONES

Helping to dissipate the force of a collision, crumple zones in the front and rear are intentionally designed to compress at a controlled rate, helping protect occupants within the more rigid passenger compartment.
Standard On: ES 350, ES 300h

BRAKE SYSTEM

Every Lexus features the latest in braking technology. Power-assisted four-wheel disc brakes include an Anti-lock Braking System to help maintain steering control while braking. Brake Assist* helps provide additional braking boost in panic-stop scenarios. And Electronic Brakeforce Distribution modulates the amount of stopping power sent to the front and rear wheels, for enhanced control.
Standard On: ES 350, ES 300h

SMART STOP* TECHNOLOGY

This system is designed to automatically reduce engine power when both the brake and accelerator pedals are pressed at the same time under certain conditions.
Standard On: ES 350, ES 300h
2017 Lexus ES.

DIRECT TIRE PRESSURE MONITOR SYSTEM*

The direct Tire Pressure Monitor System continually monitors the air pressure of all four tires. When the tire pressure drops to a critically low level, a light on the instrument panel alerts the driver to the location of the tire.
Standard On: ES 350, ES 300h
