2011 Lexus ES 350 Styling

6.0
Styling
Built on a platform that's shared with the Toyota Camry, the Lexus ES 350 does a lot with modest roots. While its profile is very conservative, almost plain, the ES 350's rear styling is appealing and tasteful, and very different than the Camry.

Last year, the ES 350 got the equivalent of a 'sharpen,' in photo-editor-speak, with a slightly larger grille, a lot more chrome, and a slightly different headlamp design to match, while the front corners have been brought out a bit more. New fog lamps and a wide, thin lower air dam complete the new and slightly different look in front, while the tail lamp design has been modified to suit the front details. Alongside, metallic trim for the side sills bridges the wheel wells, and new wheel designs also help freshen the look—which is just chromed enough to be classy but not garish.

The interior takes a slightly different direction, becoming warmer and softer, yet brighter, though the underlying design—flowing but not curvaceous—isn't all innovative or extroverted.

The 2011 Lexus ES 350 is understated and very conservative, but it's classy and luxurious in every way.
