    Revealed ahead of its Beijing motor show debut, the new Lexus ES will serve as a rival to the BMW 5-series. The image posted online follows the confirmation of the new model earlier this month where Lexus released a preview image of the sedan’s nose and large front grille.

    The Lexus ES is 4.8m-long and features angular body panels and sharp lighting that mimic styling applied to the larger LS. More details on the car are expected at the Beijing auto show.

    Built on the underpinnings of parent company Toyota’s New Global Architecture (TNGA), the model will be offered with a range of hybrid powertrains that will possibly taken from the GS model, which features hybrid systems containing four- and six-cylinder petrol engines.

    The new ES is expected to arrive on roads at the end of 2018. It will be tasked with drastically improving on the sales performance of the GS, which has been a leftfield choice against its predominantly German rivals.
