Even though the 2008 Lexus ES 350 is considered the automaker’s entry-level four door Luxury Sedan, there’s nothing entry-level about its styling, its performance and its long list of standard equipment. Under the hood, the ES 350 features a 272 horsepower 3.5-liter V6 mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. FWD comes standard. Inside, it boasts dual zone auto climate control, cruise, keyless entry, power controls, navigation, heated memory lumbar seats, a leather-wrapped adjustable steering wheel with audio controls, a trip computer and Satellite audio.Read more Read less
The luxurious, comfort-oriented Lexus ES 350 is essentially unchanged for 2008, save for the addition of two standard reading lamps to the interior.
Quiet, comfortable interior; luxury and technology features; acceleration and fuel economy.
With more than 100 onboard sensors to monitor the slightest change in the vehicle's path, the 2008 Lexus ES 350 is as intuitive as it is comfortable to drive. It also offers more interior room and safety features, and boasts a lower price tag, than most other vehicles in its class. Unlike its GS and IS stablemates that have a distinct performance focus, the front-wheel-drive ES emphasizes top luxury and technology. The car shares its platform and some of its components with the best-selling Toyota Camry but has enough styling differences and upgraded equipment to earn it a spot in the luxury class.
