2007 Lexus ES Review

The 2007 Lexus ES 350 sedan carries a base MSRP of $33,460. Add $1,280 for the premium options including an interior trimmed in leather, entry via a remote, and outside mirrors that dim automatically and tilt downward when the vehicle is in reverse. Pay another $2,480 and you'll gain features such as front seats that are both heated and ventilated, windshield wipers that are climate aware, and a power cushion extender for the driver's seat.

A combination sound and navigation unit (Mark Levinson) is available for $4,050. The system's DVD-based data is voice accessible. Sound is pumped through fourteen speakers by 300-watt surround sound audio. At the top of the trim levels, the Ultra-Luxury Package ($5,380) includes amenities like a steering wheel trimmed in wood and leather with a matching shift knob, front lighting that is adaptive, and seventeen-inch wheels (alloy) with a graphite polished surface.

The 2007 Lexus ES 350 is powered by a 3.5-liter, 272 horsepower V6 that will reach zero to sixty in 6.8 seconds with a top speed of 137 mph. Fuel efficiency is 21 mpg city and 30 highway on an 18.5 gallon tank. With seating for five, the sedan has 37.8 inches of front headroom (36.8 rear), leg room of 42.2 and 35.9 respectively, and a trunk capacity of 14.7 cubic feet.
