2013 Lexus ES 350

If you are in the market for a luxury sedan, then there is no doubt in my mind that you have looked at a Lexus.  In the first six months of this year, Lexus sold over 18,000 ES sedans in the U.S.  By far the most of any car in its lineup. Intrigued by this huge sales number, I knew I had to give the ES 350 a spin around town and see how mom friendly it was.

2013 Lexus ES 350Features include:

  • 24 MPG rating (combined)
  • 268 horsepower
  • 3.5-liter V6
  • Class-leading 10-Airbag System
  • Exclusively available Panoramic Roof
  • Seats 5

2013 Lexus ES 350I was excited about the ES 350 before I even got inside it. The ES 350 key features SmartAccess. When you approach the vehicle with the SmartAccess key in your pocket or purse entry points will be illuminated. The puddle lamps show you whats on the ground outside the car and the interior lights being on the second you open the door makes it a breeze to get kids in car seats.

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. That way you can keep a key and give your husband on and the ES 350 will adjust the seat to where you need it before you even get in the car.

2013 Lexus ES 350Once I got inside the ES 350 I realized how cold it was out side and immediateness searched for heat! And boy did I find it!! The ES 350 features heated seats with carbon heaters that warm the front seats faster and more evenly than conventional wire heaters. And, for optimal comfort, they offer three unique settings. Plus a heated steering wheel that was located right where I rest my hands! I was warm and toasty with in seconds of sitting in the ES!

I hate driving in the dark, but the ES 350’s auto high beam headlights make driving in the dark a cinch! To help provide added visibility for drivers the high beams can be left on. The when the headlights sense another vehicle ahead, they temporarily switch to low-beam!

2013 Lexus ES 350When the kids are with me in the car, I keep the music down low. But this momma loves her tunes and when I am alone, I like a system that I can jam to! The ES 350 features pristine three-dimensional sound with a  15-speaker, 835-watt Mark Levinson Premium Surround Sound Audio System. Music sounds amazing through the ES 350’s speakers!

2013 Lexus ES 350The backseat of the ES 350 is just as comfortable as the front! Three car seats easily fit across and if you have an adult in the back there is also generous headroom  and legroom for passengers to easily cross their legs. The rear seats also have access to a moonroof to star gaze at night! Plus to help reduce unwanted glare, rear-side window sunshades and a power rear sunshade are included in the luxury package. The shades made a huge different for my kids. There was no squinting or crying because there was sun in their eyes. These shades were literally a life saver!

2013 Lexus ES 350Another feature of the ES 350 that I love is the trunk! With 15.2 cubic feet of room you can fit all you need into it for a day out with the kiddos. It also auto opens and closes (just like a minivan hatch) to make getting things in and out just a little easier! I was able to fit a large double stroller in and groceries!

2013 Lexus ES 350After driving the ES 350 around for a week I was honestly sad to see it go. All the little added features really made this car easy for me, as a mom to drive around and know that myself and my babies were safe and comfortable! You can find a dealer near you to test drive or purchase a Lexus ES 350 by clicking here.

Special thanks to Lexus for letting me test drive the ES 350 for a week.
