Consider it a promise kept. Last year, Lexus introduced the Lexus Safety System+ package as an option for the ES 350. For 2017, this comprehensive safety system is now standard. It’s part of the brand’s promise to equip most models with an automatic braking safety system by the end of 2017. Lexus Safety System+ includes Pre-Collision System (PCS), Lane Departure Alert (LDA) with Steering Assist, Intelligent High Beam (IHB) and High-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.
The ES 350 received a significant style and cabin freshening for 2016, and for 2017 also adds the Scout® GPS Link to its standard Display Audio system. With the app on the driver’s smartphone, navigation maps and turn-by-turn directions appear on the car’s central display screen. It’s one more way that Lexus keeps its vehicles in tune with its customers. An integrated Lexus Navigation System remains an option for the ES 350.
