2014 Lexus ES 350 vs. 2014 Lexus IS 350 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus ES 350 than the Lexus IS 350. The Lexus IS 350 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus ES 350.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus ES 350 as you will with the Lexus IS 350, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Lexus ES 350 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lexus IS 350. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Lexus ES 350 and the Lexus IS 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lexus ES 350 is about the same width as the Lexus IS 350. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Lexus ES 350, which is slightly longer than the Lexus IS 350.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Lexus ES 350 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lexus IS 350.

Handling
The Lexus ES 350 has a larger turning radius than the Lexus IS 350, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Lexus ES 350 has less horsepower than the Lexus IS 350, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lexus ES 350 and the Lexus IS 350. The Lexus ES 350 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Lexus IS 350.

Warranty
The Lexus ES 350 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus IS 350.
