Expert Quotes:

Where the sedan really shines is in driving comfort on straight roads.
Motor Trend

may be built on the same platform as the Toyota Camry, but its cabin appointments and ride are pure Lexus
CNET

as smooth and quiet on the road as ever
The Auto Channel

extremely quiet interior for four tall adults, with an especially roomy rear-seat area
MSN Autos


Exceptionally comfortable front seats, ample back-seat space, and a soft ride—in addition to impressive interior materials and trims—create a cabin that's more relaxing and comfortable than many more expensive luxury sedans.

The front seats of the ES are soft yet supportive, and in back there's good space for adults—including a very generously shaped rear bench. It's wide enough, too, to hold three for shorter trips.

A couple of years ago, the ES 350 finally shed its Toyota-esque interior cabin for the full and proper Lexus treatment, with soft-touch plastics, wood veneers, and quality leather trim on the steering wheel and shift knob.

Contrast-stitched leather upholstery is now standard, with double stitching included with an Ultra Luxury Package, and richer-looking wood and bright-chrome trims add accents at the center stack and just above the glovebox. There's also a good deal more metallic-look trim throughout the interior and walnut and maple wood trims have been added, while leathers are supple and enveloping.

All the while, the interior is nearly silent and the ride pillowy, though the suspension is arguably a little too soft and wallowy for some country roads.

Conclusion

With roomy seating and a pillowy ride, the 2011 Lexus ES 350 is exceptionally comfortable.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
