Interior & Design

2016 Lexus ES Interior & Design 2016 Mercedes-Benz Interior Seating

An example of first-rate design, the cabin in the 2016 Lexus ES 350 is as attractive as it is comfortable. Driver and passengers alike will enjoy a great deal of head and legroom, and the trunk has a satisfying 15.2 cubic feet of cargo space for you to use as you please. This year's ES models were also redesigned to be wider, bigger and more sophisticated than before. Compare that with the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C300 and the advantages become clear. The Mercedes-Benz has just 35.2 inches of rear legroom compared to at least 40 inches in the Lexus, and you can only fit 12.6 cubic feet of cargo inside a C300.

Technology & Safety

When you buy a high-end vehicle like a Lexus, you expect a great deal of driver-friendly science inside of your cabin. In this regard, the 2016 ES 350 does not disappoint. Make use of the optional high-res display screen with integrated rearview camera as you ease out of narrow parking spaces. Tap into the power of the Lexus Enform App Suite on long road trips with your friends. Let in some fresh air through the power moonroof. Sync your personal devices using Bluetooth® technology and Siri® Eyes Free, and blast your favorite music through the available 15-speaker Mark Levinson® Premium Surround Sound Audio System. This is just the tip of the iceberg when you own a new Lexus ES 350, and the Mercedes-Benz is left struggling to keep up. The C300 offers Bluetooth® and a camera system, but it has just a 13-speaker sound system and no power moonroof at all.

Your safety is never in doubt when you drive a new Lexus ES. It can sport a huge variety of passive and active safety features to keep you and your loves ones protected on the open road. Should an accident occur, a 10-airbag safety system, Whiplash Injury Lessening front seatbacks and rigid body construction with crumple zones shield you from harm. Plus, the Lexus Enform Safety Connect system is complimentary for an entire year and provides peace of mind, sending roadside assistance to your GPS location. If you buy a Mercedes-Benz sedan, you'll receive just nine airbags and no whiplash-reducing seats. You'll also be forced to pay extra for roadside assistance.
