2011 Lexus ES350 Review

(3 Stars)  More bland than bold

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The Lexus ES 350 is one of the company's bestselling vehicles. It received a partial update in 2010 and the styling carries over to 2011. Some of the updates that came along with the 2010 refresh were new bumper and grill, along with new lights all around.

The 2011 ES 350 is motivated by a 268 HP 3.5 liter v-6. Torque stands at 248 ft-lbs. These numbers are down slightly from last year's model of the same vehicle, but with the ever volatile fuel prices, it was deemed prudent to trade 3 or 4 hp for the ability to run on regular unleaded gas. Last year's model required premium. Power is still transferred to the ground through a 6 speed automatic transmission and sits on 17 inch rims with two style choices available.

The ES 350 features many of what were previously options that are now offered as standard equipment. Side mirrors now have integrated turn signals. Leather seating with driver seat memory, rear side airbags, and a radio offering USB and XM radio.

This model has also been updated after the Toyota floor mat recall.
