Interior & Design
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

The powerplant is combined with a 6-speed automatic transmission and standard front-wheel drive, so you're set to have quite a bit of fun on the open road.
