The new Lexus ES 350 sedans feature a wider, longer body and a more sporty look, inherited from the flagship LS. With advanced technology, safety, more powerful engine, and legendary Lexus reliability, this is the best ES ever. The ride quality is also quiet and silky-smooth, with even more interior space. The acceleration and handling are outstanding, especially with the fun, new F Sport trim. What truly separates the ES 350 though is the upscale design elements and ultra smooth ride.

The Toyota Avalon is a fine luxury sedan option, but it doesn't have the same level of luxury options and upscale interior design elements. If you're looking for a luxury sedan that stands out in terms of comfort, ride quality, and quality materials & workmanship, we recommend the Lexus for just a little more. With the new F Sport Trim, the Lexus ES 350 feels a lot more sporty as well. Test drive the newly re-designed Lexus ES 350 today at our Lexus dealership in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
