2016 Lexus ES 350 vs. 2016 Toyota Camry Comparison Born from the same family, the 2017 Lexus ES 350 and 2017 Toyota Camry are two mid-size sedans with reputations for excellence. If you’re considering purchasing either of these vehicles, it’s good to know the finer points of each and what differentiates them from one another. 

Interior & Design

The 2017 Lexus ES delivers on its tradition of excellence when it comes to the interior of the vehicle. Its luxurious cabin is made with high quality materials, from the upholstery to the trim. Drivers note that not only are the seats very comfortable with plenty of leg room in the front and back, but also that the cabin stays very quiet on the highway and city streets. The 2017 Camry also sports a roomy and good-looking interior, but it takes getting to the higher trim levels to come close to the quality of the materials making up the ES. From an exterior perspective, the Camry takes on a bit more of a traditional look, while the ES 350 comes off as a bit edgier and sportier.

Technology & Safety

Both vehicles are equipped with a rearview camera, Bluetooth audio, USB ports and an infotainment system, but that’s where the similarities stop. The 7 inch display screen on the 2017 Lexus ES is larger than the 6.1 inch screen on the 2017 Camry, which is surprisingly noticeable. The ES also features a power moonroof and push-button start standard, where both of those features are optional on the Camry. Drivers do report that the touch-screen infotainment system on the Camry is very intuitive, while the Remote Touch Controller on the ES 350 does take some getting used to. Both vehicles received the coveted IIHS Top Safety Pick for their array of standard an optional safety features.

Other than the luxuriousness of the interior, performance is the other area where the 2017 Lexus ES 350 stands head and shoulders above the 2017 Camry. Equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 engine with 268 horsepower, the ES 350 easily outperforms the Camry with its outdated 2.5-liter four cylinder, 178 horsepower engine that comes standard. Drivers can expect a smooth ride with composed handling in their 2017 ES, and are also able to control the driving experience with Drive Mode Select. This allows you to switch between Normal Driving Mode, Sport Mode and Eco Mode to give you a mode for every mood.
