How does it look?

Lexus says the ES 350 features extensive use of its L-Finesse design language. That sounds like marketing jargon to us, but it seems to work. The ES is a bit chunky from some angles, particularly from the rear three-quarters view and the nose is a bit too snout-ish for us, but overall the look says upscale elegance, not leather-lined Camry.

Inoffensive from every angle, the ES is hardly a memorable design but thats probably just fine with most buyers seeking to blend in a bit, especially given Lexus subdued color choices. Any shade of gray or tan hey, at least its easy to keep it looking clean.

Our press fleet testers glossy black roof came courtesy of its optional panoramic moonroof and in combination with the dark tinted windows installed by Lexus Southern United States distributor and the light paint scheme, the ES had an almost futuristic look.

For us, the biggest gripes were the dark-finish 17-inch alloy wheels with low profile tires and dual exhaust outlets that promised sportiness that the ES simply doesnt try to deliver.
