2006 saw the 330 badge stripped from the rear end, and these models were rebadged as Lexus E350 models. The exact style was retained until 2009 where the entry-level sedan was enhanced to be more aerodynamic. A host of new vibrant colour options was added to the menu. Standard features included digital a/c, AUX input, eight airbags, leather seats wooden trim, 14-speaker premium stereo sound system, standard cruise control, navigation, parking sensors and power seats. Optional extras included a moonroof, Lexus Park Assist, adaptive cruise control and reverse camera.
Over the years more and more features were added either as standard or optional; keyless entry, panoramic sunroof, LED’s, cooled seats, analogue clock as well as numerous safety features such as stability control, pre-collision system, multiple airbags, and new floor mats.
2010 saw the introduction of the Premier, Titanium and Platinum trim levels all of which bear distinct characteristics.
2013 was the next big step regarding design, Lexus designers went to work and redesigned the exterior and touched up the interior. Another new grille and headlamps were placed up front and around the back, rear taillamps and boot have been reworked for a sharper look. Interior spaces and extras remained the same once again.
2016 models revisited the design studio again, this time, designers took samples from other Lexus models and attached those bits to the ES 350 for an edgier look. With the exterior featuring more refined lines, small changes were made inside while all the interior features remain the same as before.
As always what's underneath the bonnet is marked in on the vehicle's rear end, a 3.5-litre V6 motor powering the front wheels via a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
ES 350 models are available as 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 models.
