Compare the 2016 Lexus ES 350

Loading Comparison...


The Lexus ES is a mid-size front-wheel-drive luxury sedan built on the Toyota Avalon platform. Its emphasis is comfort over sport. Two drivetrains are available.

The Lexus ES 350 comes with a strong 3.5-liter V6 and 6-speed automatic transmission. The 268-horsepower V6 is EPA-rated at 21/31 mpg City/Highway.

The Lexus ES 300h features a hybrid gas-electric powerplant that is surprisingly quick and responsive. The ES 300h uses a 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine with an electric motor and generator. The vivid hybrid delivers an EPA-estimated 40/39 mpg City/Highway. The hybrid offers three driving modes: Eco, Power, and EV, which runs all-electric for short distances at slower speed.

This seventh-generation ES was launched as a 2013 model. For 2016, the styling has been revised and new features have been added.

The 2016 Lexus ES leaves some of its subdued styling behind, with a new nose that shows off a signature spindle grille that’s bigger and more aggressive, and flaunts flashy LED headlamps. The front fascia is bold too. The taillights are shaped like the letter L, and the exhaust tips are trapezoids. There are new wheels for 2016 Lexus ES models, as well.

Inside, the environment is airy and sophisticated. The information display screen increases in size from 3.5 to 4.2 inches for 2016. Also, the 2016 Lexus ES has an optional safety package with pre-collision, lane departure alert with steering assist, automatic high/low beams, and adaptive cruise control. A blind spot monitor and rear cross traffic alert are also available.


The 2016 Lexus ES 350 ($38,000) comes with a 3.5-liter V6 and 6-speed automatic along with excellent faux leather upholstery, Bluetooth, XM HD radio, eight-speaker audio, and a sunroof.

The Lexus ES 300h ($40,920) features a hybrid gas-electric powerplant. (Prices are MSRP, can change at any time without notice, and do not include destination charge.)


The larger grille on 2016 Lexus ES models adds chrome trim in an attempt to give it more visual excitement. The pinched waist of its sharp hourglass is on the bumper, so it flows outward (upward and downward) into the hood and low air dam. The new front fascia matches the aggression. The LED headlamps aren’t just flashy, they’re beautiful.

The profile is contemporary with sculpted sheetmetal that gives it a formal look, in a good way.


The dash is shelf-like, but the Lexus ES gets away with it by staying true to horizontal lines, with a curving instrument panel and corners that rise up and outward. It gives off a feeling of space, even with the available seven-inch navigation screen prominently up there. Too much metallic trim here for our taste.

It feels refined inside the cabin, especially when it’s moving because it’s so quiet, no wind or road noise.

That sense of space becomes reality in the back seat. The ES has a long wheelbase for its mid-size, which translates to more legroom in the rear. Three adults actually can fit back there. When cargo capacity is needed, the rear seatback flops and opens to the trunk. But not the hybrid, which has a smaller trunk to make room for batteries, with no pass-through to the cabin, either.

Beyond the standard equipment, available interior luxuries include Mark Levinson audio, upgraded leather and trim, and Lexus Enform with all its apps. But the remote touch control, mouse-like with a pointer on the screen, is awkward. Two buttons have been added for 2016 in an attempt to make it simpler.

Driving Impressions

The demeanor is relaxed but the performance is athletic, or at least can be. The ride is firm without tipping the comfort south. It’s not quite nimble, but it tracks true and the steering is quick enough. However the brake pedal in the ES 350 feels spongy.

In the ES 300h, which uses regenerative braking, the brake pedal isn’t smooth. The hybrid drivetrain is otherwise quite smooth around town, and it’s generally quite quick, but on curvy roads with hills, or when merging on the freeway with your foot down, the engine feels stressed.

The 3.5-liter V6 with its 268 horsepower makes the ES 350 quicker than the ES 300h hybrid, but a bigger difference might be its smoothness. The ES 350’s V6 revs through the transmission’s six gears seamlessly; in fact it happens so quietly and effortlessly that you find yourself going fast before you’re aware of it. It’s an exceptionally responsive and refined powertrain.


The Lexus ES offers a comfortable ride, good handling and a stylish interior. The ES 350 features a super-smooth V6, while the ES 300h boasts a high-mileage hybrid powerplant.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
