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


The 2012 Lexus ES 350 feels like a true luxury car inside--and that means top-notch trims and materials, plush seating, and a comfortable ride, as well as the hushed, isolated ride quality you expect in a non performance-focused Lexus.

Seats aren't as supportive as you'll find in some German rivals (or from Cadillac, for that matter), but they're exceptionally comfortable all around. The back seat is contoured for adults, and wide enough to hold three for shorter trips.

Factor in the impressive interior materials and trims—with walnut and maple wood trims, and supple and enveloping leather upholstery—and you have a true luxury-car interior good enough to impress discerning clients. Contrast-stitched leather upholstery is now standard, while the double-stitching, richer-looking wood and bright-chrome trims you get in the Ultra Luxury Package add some of the ambiance of the pricier LS.

All the while, the interior is nearly silent and the ride pillowy but well controlled (albeit possibly a little too soft and wallowy for some country roads).

Conclusion

Whether sprawling out in its comfortable interior or focusing in on the details, the 2012 Lexus ES 350 feels every bit a luxury car.

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.
