2016 Lexus ES Buyer's Guide

Uniquely positioned among the industry’s luxury marques, Lexus actually has two entries in the mid-size sedan category. One is a rear-wheel drive performance oriented model—the other is a front-wheel drive model focused primarily on quiet and comfort. The 2016 Lexus ES 350 sedan is the kinder, gentler mid-size Lexus luxury sedan. While the marketplace considers the Lexus ES 350 an entry-level luxury model, apparently the product planners at Lexus are either huge into overachieving, or word of the car’s station somehow escaped their notice. We’re saying all of this in an attempt to explain that the Lexus ES 350 is easily one of the nicest models in the segment. Further, the Lexus delivers calmness, smoothness, and sophistication on par with a number of the leading luxury marque’s flagships.

What makes it move?

Powering the 2016 Lexus ES 350 five-passenger mid-size entry-luxury sedan is a creamily smooth 3.5-liter V6 engine from which 268 exceptionally well-mannered horsepower and 248 ft-lbs of resolutely service-oriented ft-lbs of torque flow forth. The front-wheel drive powertrain is completed by a remarkably sophisticated and smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transmission. In addition to its preternatural civility, the Lexus returns a very respectable 21 miles per gallon in the city, 31 miles per gallon on the highway, and 24 miles per gallon in combined city and highway driving.

Why buy the 2016 Lexus ES?

For the 2016 Lexus ES 350, the product team prescribed an even bolder take on the signature Lexus “Spindle” grille treatment. Meanwhile, the new LED headlights add considerably to the appearance of the Lexus model at night. The front end’s redesign also moved the foglights out to the corners of the car for better dispersion, and to enhance the wide stance of the mid-size Lexus. At the rear, the new “L-themed” taillights and revised exhaust outlets mimic those of the flagship Lexus LS. The ES 350’s driver’s aid systems have been aggregated into a package known as the Lexus Safety System+. This combines the car’s Pre-Collision System, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Intelligent High Beam, and High-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control into one bundle.
