"I’m very satisfied with the features and performance of my Lexus ES,” says Mr. Ronnie Seng, as he steps out of the steel grey sedan that he has been driving for over a year now. “I’ve heard some friends complaining about having constant problems with their cars and I just feel lucky that I’ve not encountered any of those.” This is Mr. Seng’s third Lexus.
"As the managing director for the Regional Business Unit, Global Enterprise Banking of OCBC Bank, frequent work assignments take Mr. Seng overseas, sometimes on week-long stretches, where he is often driven around. But whenever he returns home to Singapore, he makes sure to take the wheel. “I can’t wait to drive my family around – mostly to visit new places and eat out.”
Although he generally eschews being described as a gourmand, Mr. Seng is actually a great food enthusiast. His extensive knowledge of food is matched by his efforts to find them. He has driven with friends around San Sebastian in Spain to sample pintxos and txakoli, and whenever he and his wife host dinner at home he’s the one who cooks. “Our home kitchen is my territory,” he says proudly. He’s equally reliable with tips on the best places to shop for food, from nasi lemak all the way to prime steaks.
Naturally, a car with ample space scores big with Mr. Seng. His Lexus ES keeps him and his passengers comfortable with its roomy seats and legroom – a real convenience as he is tall. He can fill the trunk with all the ingredients he needs for a big cookout, and even open it with his foot in case he’s carrying grocery bags with both hands.
Mr. Seng enjoys even more conveniences on the road. “It is a very responsive car,” he says, “which makes driving a breeze in any road condition. It has acoustic glass windows that make it very quiet – that means I can really focus on my driving.”
The Blind Spot Monitor alerts Mr. Seng when he can’t immediately see another car that is moving too close to his. “That feature, along with the Lane Departure Alert, is reliable especially when I’m driving on unfamiliar roads or when there’s inadequate lighting.
Other features that Mr. Seng enjoys include the Panoramic Glass Roof and the Power Sunshade at the rear window. The first opens up vistas and bring in natural light and ventilation, while the second provides comfort and privacy as needed. The rear window shade automatically lowers when the reverse gear is engaged. Although they may seem like small touches, they actually contribute significantly to the overall pleasure and convenience of driving the Lexus ES.
