The Lexus ES model arrived on the market in 1989 and soon became the most popular car that can be found around because of its practicality, comfort, and excellent space. The completely new 2016 Lexus ES 350 was introduced in 2007 as the 2008 model. The 350 was completely redesigned in 2013, and it now seems that its third birthday is on horizon. The company confirmed that the 2016 Lexus ES 350 will be comfort-oriented, fuel efficient, and excellent luxury sedan. The vehicle will be based on the Toyota Avalon architecture. It debuted at the Shanghai Auto Show in 2015 when we found out that the model arrives with several updates in terms of exterior, and the same engine as the previous generation. Will those changes be good enough to make the 2016 Lexus ES 350 the best-selling luxury sedan on the market?
