For the 2019 ES mid-size sedan, Lexus is trading in traditional side mirrors for digital cameras.

With Lexus's "Digital Outer Mirrors", the typical glass mirror pods are replaced by rear-facing digital cameras.

The digital mirrors will make their debut on the all-new ES, which is expected to go on sale in Japan in October, following its launch in Thailand and the United States.
