Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Lexus ES 350 than in the Toyota Avalon, due to the Lexus ES 350's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lexus ES 350 and the Toyota Avalon in the front seats.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus ES 350 as you will with the Toyota Avalon, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Lexus ES 350 is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Avalon. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Lexus ES 350 will cost more in transportation costs than the Toyota Avalon.

The Lexus ES 350 is about the same width as the Toyota Avalon. When looking at overall length, the Lexus ES 350 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Avalon.

With similar torque, the Lexus ES 350 and the Toyota Avalon do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

The Lexus ES 350 has about the same turning radius as the Toyota Avalon, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Lexus ES 350 and the Toyota Avalon.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lexus ES 350 and the Toyota Avalon. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Lexus ES 350 as you will in the Toyota Avalon.

You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Lexus ES 350 than that of the Toyota Avalon.
