Equipped with a 268-horsepower V6 engine, the ES 350 gets right to work on the highways and city streets responding to the driver’s cues with precision like a symphony follows its conductor. Its unyielding body and new independent suspension perform in harmony to grip the road for added control and meticulous handling.
“The 2013 Lexus ES 350 delivers a refined and serene driving experience that’s bolstered by a V6 engine that’s smooth and sufficiently powerful,” writes Edmunds in its review. “At highway speeds, the cabin remains remarkably silent, mostly devoid of wind, road or engine noise. Bumps and ruts in the road are now better absorbed than before, with barely a hint of their presence reaching the passengers.”
One of the hallmarks of a Lexus is the generous head and legroom in the rear seats of its vehicles. And the redesigned interior of the 2013 Lexus ES 350 gains a whopping four inches of legroom over previous models. A rear seat haven awaits passengers in the 2013 Lexus ES 350 with its spacious legroom from the new longer platform and sleeker front seatback design.

Your choices include heated and ventilated front seats, heated steering wheel, 10-way power front seats, Navigation System with access to mobile apps, and an 835-watt Mark Levinson Premium Surround Sound Audio System with 15 speakers.
Or, you can opt for the aptly-named Ultra Luxury Package featuring soft, semi-aniline leather, hand-selected wood trim, power rear sunshade, rear-side-window-shades and a panoramic glass roof. “And it’s here where the ES 350 really shines, becoming a virtually transparent conveyance, shielding its occupants from the outside world behind acoustically insulated glass,” Car and Driver writes in its 2013 ES 250 review.

Body design. Lexus engineers tested more than 30 digital models and multiple prototypes in developing the upper body of the 2013 Lexus ES 350. By pairing new reinforcements with additional bracing in other areas, stability and handling are enhanced and the roof structure is strong enough to withstand an impact load more than three times its own weight.
SmartAccess: No need to remove the key from your pocket or purse. SmartAccess can sense your approach, illuminating exterior puddle lamps and interior lighting. You can unlock the doors and trunk with one touch. And, with the available remote keyless entry-linked memory system, the ES can detect which of the two supplied keys is present and recall the seat, side mirror and steering wheel positions to that driver’s preprogrammed preferences.
Backup camera: Backing in and out of tight spaces becomes easier with the available backup camera. Shift the new Lexus ES 350 in reverse, and the view from a small camera located above the rear license plate appears in full color on the multimedia display. To assist with parking, the display also shows guides indicating the vehicle’s width and orientation.
Intelligent high-beam headlamps: For added visibility for drivers including those in nearby cars, available intelligent high-beam headlamps offer increased illumination when the road ahead is clear and temporarily switch to low-beam when they sense another vehicle ahead.
Of all the areas worthy of focus on the 2013 Lexus ES 350, among the most important is its focus on Keeping you safe. While an ordinary crash test dummy can provide 119 data points, Lexus uses digital models comprised of millions.

Intelligent high-beam headlamps: The available intelligent high-beam headlamps automatically switch to low-beam when sensing headlamps or tail lamps ahead.
Safety Connect: In the event that the airbags deploy in the Lexus ES 350, or there’s a serious rear-end collision, the available Safety Connect can contact a response center agent who can notify local emergency services and direct them to the vehicle’s location.
Pre-Collision System: To help you prepare for and avoid potential collisions, an available Pre-Collision System with Dynamic Radar Cruise Control monitors the road ahead for obstacles and warn you of their presence with beeps and visible alerts. It can automatically brake before impact.
Transmission: Six-speed sequential-shift automatic Electronically Controlled Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i)
