Driving It

Driving Impressions

Across town or across country, the ES 350 is as luxurious as it is comfortable. Backed with enough power and agility to maneuver out of most unforeseen traffic challenges, the ES 350 is a perfect highway cruiser. Superlative descriptions for smoothness, quiet and comfort are perfectly appropriate for the ES 350. The stability control system, anti-lock brakes, brake assist and electronic brake-force distribution make their contributions to keeping things under control and helping to prevent an accident before it happens.

SmartAccess Keyless Remote Entry/Starting No more fishing for keys in pocket or purse as the SmartAccess system allows the driver to lock and unlock the ES 350's doors and start and stop the engine with a simple push of a button.

Optional Heated and Ventilated Front Seats Leather-wrapped 10-way power seats help keep the ES 350's front-seat occupants warm in the winter and cool in the summer. During the frosty winter season these seats help keep driver and passenger toasty by providing three levels of warming, and there are three stages of cooling to beat the heat in summer months.
