After two days of test drives by dozens of journalists, the 2019 Lexus ES 350 F SPORT was awarded first place in the Mid-Size Luxury Car category at this year’s Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) Auto Roundup.
“We’re honored to receive this award from the members of TAWA for our fully redesigned ES sedan. Its combination of styling, performance and luxury make it a true leader in its class,” said Lisa Materazzo, vice president of marketing, Lexus.
Long known for its unparalleled comfort, refinement and luxury appointments, the 2019 Lexus ES rides on an all-new chassis that allows for a more dynamic exterior design and the introduction of the first ES F SPORT. With its standard sport seats, aluminum interior trim, unique exterior styling, sport suspension tuning and 19-inch wheels and tires, the ES 350 F SPORT delivers a higher level of performance without sacrificing any of the luxury Lexus buyers expect.
50 journalists were able to test drive the all-new 2019 ES 350, alongside 23 other vehicles from the world’s top manufacturers in 11 different categories. The event, held in Denton, Texas, included two days of in-depth test driving. TAWA journalists put vehicles to the test, evaluating five key pillars – exterior, interior, performance, value, and personal appeal.
