Bold Exterior Design
A bold illustration of our L-finesse design philosophy, the ES sports a sleek
and elegant style. A distinctive grill and dynamic headlamps give a strong
stance. A long, streamlined cabin, integrated foglamps and wraparound
taillamps express speed and grace. Complemented by a dual exhaust, this
look embodies simple yet stylish design principles.
Engineers designed the ES with a tapered front narrow gaps in the body panels,
resulting in a low 0.29 coefficient of drag. Other benefits include
high-speed control and fuel efficiency, along with reduced wind noise. A
specially designed cover mounted below the engine also reduces the front-end
lift that often occurs as speed increases.
Dual-swivel Adaptive Front Lighting
With the available Dual-swivel Adaptive Front Lighting System  , both headlamps can turn to help illuminate curves. At speeds above 19 mph, both headlamps will swivel into the curve of the road. At lower speeds, the headlamps can rotate up to 15 degrees.
The Adaptive Front Lighting System can help improve vision at night. However, conditions such as dirty windshield, rapidly changing light conditions or hilly terrain will limit effectiveness so the driver may need to manually change the high beams from on to off. Please see your Owner's Manual for details.
17-in Alloy Wheels
The ES is complemented by five-split-spoke alloy wheels that add elegant styling
accents. The ES also offers available 17-inch, 10-spoke Liquid
Graphite-finish alloy wheels  for an
exceptionally attractive look.
17-in performance tires are expected to experience greater tire wear than
conventional tires. Tire life may be substantially less than 20,000 miles,
depending upon driving conditions.
Panorama Glass Roof
The available panorama glass roof appears to span the entire cabin. This
roof offers twin skylights for front and rear passengers to enjoy. The
full-length glass roofline seamlessly integrates with the metal roof frame.
Intuitive Parking Assist
With six ultrasonic sensors on the ES 350's front and rear, available Intuitive Parking Assist detects
how close the vehicle is to surrounding objects. When the Parking Assist button is
active, the system
alerts the driver when another vehicle or object is in proximity. Distance is indicated by an LCD display,
accompanied by an audible beep. The closer the ES is to the object, the fewer lines appear on the display,
and the more frequent the beeping becomes.
With a unique secure code in the key fob, the SmartAccess
  system recognizes you and
automatically allows you to unlock and open all four doors and the trunk.
The ultimate in convenience, all you need to do is grab a door handle or press
the trunk open button. SmartAccess even activates the lighting entry
system to illuminate your points of entry from the exterior puddle lamps to the
interior lighting. In addition, the system can recognize two SmartAccess
fobs for two different drivers, and can automatically recall preferred settings
for that particular driver.
The SmartAccess system may interfere with some pacemakers or cardiac
defibrillators. If you have one of these medical devices, please talk to
your doctor to see if you should deactivate this system.
 The engine
immobilizer is a state-of-the-art anti-theft system. When you insert your
key into the ignition switch or bring a SmartAccess fob into the vehicle, the
key transmits an electronic code to the vehicle. The engine will only
start if the code in the transponder chip inside the key or SmartAccess fob
matches the code in the vehicle's immobilizer. Because the transponder
chip is embedded in the key or SmartAccess fob, it can be costly to
replace. If you lose a key or SmartAccess fob, your Lexus dealer can help.
Alternatively, you can find a qualified independent locksmith to perform
high-security key services by consulting your local Yellow Pages or by
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
A millimeter-wave radar sensor allows the available Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
to help maintain your selected speed
when it's activated. This system also allows you to follow the vehicle in front of you at the same pre-set speed.
A car icon on the information display shows the selected following distance.
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control is designed to assist the driver and is not a substitute
for safe and attentive driving practices. Please see your Owner's Manual for important cautions and instructions.
The side-view mirrors feature integrated turn signals to help warn other drivers of intended lane changes or turns. In addition, puddle lamps are located on the underside of the mirrors. They light the ground next to the door to prevent you from stepping in puddles, slush or other road debris. As you approach the ES, the SmartAccess
key remotely turns on the puddle lamp. And, for added convenience when parking, the mirrors automatically tilt down when the ES is placed in reverse.
The SmartAccess system may interfere with some pacemakers or cardiac defibrillators. If you have one of these medical devices, please talk to your doctor to see if you should deactivate this system.

Powered by a xenon gas bulb, the available projector-beam High-Intensity
Discharge (HID) headlamps use less power, last significantly longer and provide
considerably more illumination than halogen. If there is a dramatic shift in
light, these headlamps automatically turn on or shut off. To help night driving,
the auto-leveling feature adjusts the lights to a pre-set height. This
allows for better road illumination and helps reduce glare to oncoming drivers.
Besides helping to improve visibility during foggy or misty driving conditions, the striking foglamps also
accentuate the front design of the ES by integrating stylishly into the lower corners of the bumper.
A tiny camera lens located over the rear license plate
 transmits a wide-angle color image to
the screen on the available voice-activated HDD Navigation System
. It activates as soon as the ES
is placed in the reverse. The camera image helps capture objects that a
mirror could miss or obstacles not visible through the rear window.
backup camera does not provide a comprehensive view of the rear area of the
vheicle. You should also look around outside your vehicle and use your
mirrors to confirm rearward clearance. Cold weather may limit
effectiveness and view may become cloudy.
