Suburban Dads' Performance Car
By DC Lobbyist on


2009 Lexus ES 350 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


The 272 hp, 3.5 V6 liter engine rockets the Lexus ES 350 from zero to 60 in 6.8 seconds, better than the 2009 Mercedes Benz C300 Sport’s 228 hp 3.0 liter V6 (7.1 secs.) or the 2009 BMW 328i automatic’s 230 hp 3.0-liter V6 (6.9 secs.) With 95.4 cu ft. of interior space and 14.7 cu. ft. of cargo space, the Lexus has considerably more room for car seats, strollers, etc. than either the BMW (93 cu. ft. int./ 12 cu. ft. cargo) or the Mercedes (88.2 cu. ft. int./ 12.4 cu. ft. cargo). And it's packed with options that would make Q jealous (voice activated GPS, back up camera, air conditioned seats). It cradles you after the daycare drop off and can waste most of the other cars on the road.

Best Features

3.5 liter, 272 hp. engine. Air conditioned seats. MP3 cd player (turns the stereo into a jukebox even without an iPod). Voice activated GPS ("nearest Japanese restaurant"). Bluetooth speaker phone. Backup camera.

Worst Features

Rocket launchers. Smoke screen. White noise generator to drown out giggles from the back seat. AWD option. Get rid of the Lexus "nanny" that limits some functions while the car is moving.
