Both the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) award top marks to the 2008 Lexus ES 350 for safety.

The 2008 Lexus ES 350 gets a "good" rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and the NHTSA gives it five stars for front protection, five for driver side impacts, and four stars for passenger side impacts, as well as four stars for rollover protection.

Standard safety equipment on the Lexus 2008 ES 350 includes stability control, eight standard airbags, and anti-lock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution. Motor Trend reports that “available rear-seat side bags bring the total to ten.”

The Lexus proprietary Pre-Collision System will automatically tighten the front seat belts and prepare the brake assist to go into action if it determines that a collision is imminent, as well as activate the brakes without the driver if necessary, Edmunds says. Adaptive Cruise Control is also available; it uses radar to keep a safe distance between the Lexus 2008 ES 350 and the vehicle ahead in the lane.

Conclusion

The Lexus 2008 ES 350 provides a strong, safe environment for passengers.

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.
