If you're in the market for a new vehicle and you'd like to get something with smooth lines, impressive performance, and cutting edge technology, consider a luxury sedan. If you've narrowed down your options to the Lexus ES 350 or the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, this helpful guide will look at the similarities and differences between the two to help you decide which one will meet your needs.
One of the most important comparisons to make between the ES 350 and C-Class is the power and performance offered by both vehicles. If you decide to choose the ES 350 you will be rewarded with a 3.5-liter-V6 engine capable of producing 302 horsepower. This allows the 2019 Lexus ES 350 to go from 0-60 mph in a mere 6.6 seconds.  The 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, on the other hand, only provides a 2.0-liter inline-4 turbo engine that is capable of producing 255 horsepower. 
Both the 2019 ES 350 and 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class are luxury vehicles, but which vehicle provides its driver the most comfort and best experience? Both models feature leather wheels, fashionable upholstery, and innovative media systems. However, due to its greater head and leg room, backseat passengers will be able to relax more comfortably in the Lexus ES 350. Taller drivers will also appreciate the spacious room available around the drivers seat.
The 2019 Lexus ES 350 is a true luxury sedan, so it provides the most elegant features available, including standard 17-inch split-10-spoke alloy wheels. The ES 350's base appearance also sports a bold grille and lighting. However, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class won't fail to turn a few heads with a unique diamond radiator grille. Personal preference would decide the winner for the most attractive exterior as both models embody a truly attractive look.
Mercedes-Benz and Lexus both take the safety of their drivers extremely seriously and, as a result, spare no cost in guaranteeing the safety of drivers and passengers alike. For example, both the 2019 ES 350 and 2019 C-Class feature lane keeping assist and brake assist. However, only Lexus provides the safety of the Lexus Safety System+ 2.0. This system is designed to help pave the way to a world with fewer collisions and better-informed drivers. An integrated suite of class-leading standard active safety equipment, the system is designed to help in certain circumstances including providing bicyclist and pedestrian alerts.
Buying a luxury vehicle does not have to drain the wallet of the buyer. Both the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class and 2019 Lexus ES 350 are surprisingly affordable. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class starts at a mere $41,400. Although the C-Class is an impressive deal, it fails to top the unbeatable price the Lexus ES 350 starts at, just $39,750.
If you want to find out if the 2019 Lexus ES 350 is the right car for you, don't hesitate to schedule a test drive.
