1996 Lexus ES 300: The View

November 05, 2012

I noticed something different about our old Lexus ES 300 when I started merging into traffic the other day.

What was it? 

I could easily see out of it. 

The A- and B-pillars are very slim by current standards, making the front and side views positively airy. The C-pillar is also reasonably narrow, while the semi-wraparound rear window is huge. 

I'm not going to say it's as structurally safe as today's cars. But damn, there's something to be said for being able to easily see the cars around you.
