The 2016 Lexus ES 350 and ES 300h hybrid receive a revised front end with a more dramatic spindle grille, standard LED headlights and more standard features. Also standard is the Safety System Plus suite that includes collision warning, lane-departure warning, radar-guided cruise control and intelligent high beam.
A handful of changes marks the 2015 Lexus ES. Faux-leather NuLuxe seat upholstery is now perforated, with leather and soft semi-aniline leather an option. The Display Audio system gets a standard rearview camera and offers expanded connectivity, including a mobile app for iOS and Android devices.
About Lexus ES
The ES was Lexus' second offering in the U.S., but in terms of sales it plays second fiddle only to the hot-selling RX crossover SUV. While it's true a BMW 5 Series or Cadillac CTS offer a more engaging ride, not every luxury car buyer is also a driving enthusiast. In the Lexus ES sedan for 2016, owners will find a premium automobile that places an emphasis on comfort without completely sacrificing the performance aspects expected of this class. From its L finesse design language to its excellent repair and reliability record to the hybrid's 40-plus mpg, the ES is the closest thing to a sure bet in the luxury sedan world.
