Current Lexus ES 350

The current Lexus ES 350 shares its basic architecture and major mechanicals with the Toyota Camry. Exterior panels and interior furnishings are unique, though, and the Lexus sedan gets a bit more power out of its standard 3.5-liter V6, which is rated for 268 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission sends it all to the front wheels. Getting to 60 mph takes about 7 seconds

Standard equipment on the Lexus ES 350 is about what you'd expect in an entry-level luxury sedan, as a sunroof, keyless ignition/entry, power front seats, leather upholstery, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control and lovely wood trim are all included. Popular options include a panoramic sunroof, a Mark Levinson surround-sound audio system, a navigation system, adaptive xenon headlights, adaptive cruise control and heated and ventilated front seats.

In our reviews of the Lexus ES 350, our editors have found this entry-luxury sedan pleasant to drive. The V6 engine is smooth, and if you're not particularly interested in sporty dynamics, the ES 350's isolated and soft ride will be to your liking. Inside, the quality of the materials and the overall level of opulence is impressive for this class of car. For buyers seeking a true luxury sedan experience, the ES 350 won't disappoint.
