Editor's Overview

As Lexus’ most popular sedan, the 2017 Lexus ES 350 and ES 300h hybrid offer an appealing combination of modern styling, extreme luxury, high-tech safety features and value. The front-wheel-drive ES also performs well, especially the new ES 350 with its powerful 268-horsepower 3.5-liter V6. And its reputation for near-bulletproof reliability certainly plays a role in its perennial popularity.

Happy with our new Lexus. We feel very good about driving it.

Very comfortable and smooth ride handles well on the road. It is beautifully designed sleek in appearance we love the pearl coating on it the interior is very comfortable with letter air and he cooled seats very happy that we bought this car we take long vacations and it.

The safety features are the best. When parking there are front and rear cameras that let you know if you are getting to close.

I love my Lexus. I absolutely cannot live without the backup camera and the mirror notification of approaching vehicles or pedestrians. The ride is quiet and comfortable. The trunk space is very good. My only complaint would be that it doesn't have a fold down back seat.

- Karen R

Nothing much. It's a car; it's pretty; it's white.

It still has a CD player, but not sure how much longer they will include it the coming models. It's a real pain having to change CDs will on a highway, but when you're reading a book, it becomes necessary. I'd love to have the 6-disc player it used to have!!
