Edmunds Road Test Editor Calvin Kim shows us what it's like to test the acceleration capability of a 2017 Lexus ES 350. This, by the way, is a rare type of car: a front-wheel drive, full-size luxury sedan. Sports cars tend to beat their manufacturers' stated performance numbers, but can the ES 350 beat Lexus' cited 0-60 mph time of 7.1 seconds? Watch and find out!

Q: What kind of engine and transmission does the 2017 Lexus ES 350 have?
A: The Lexus ES 350 is equipped with a 3.5-liter non-turbocharged V6 engine. It produces 268 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque. This power is sent to the front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission.

Q: How much does the 2017 Lexus ES 350 cost?
A: The starting price for the 2017 Lexus ES 350 is $39,875, including delivery and handling fees. The ES 350 featured in this video has an as-tested price of $49,210 thanks to the addition of the Ultra Luxury package, navigation with Mark Levinson premium audio package, 18-inch high-gloss wheels, LED headlights, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, front and rear parking sensors, a heated wood-and-leather-trimmed steering wheel, and a power trunklid.

Q: What advantages does the 2017 Lexus ES 350 have over its competitors?
A: Ease of operation: Most drivers will be able to get in and figure out how to use most functions of the car very quickly. Quiet and plush ride: While other luxury sedans aspire to be four-door sports cars complete with a stiff ride, loud exhaust and noisy tires, the ES 350 is very comfortable in its own long-range road-trip-friendly suspension setup. Think meditative, not distracting. Finally, the ES 350's large and airy interior space, in particular its roomy seats, are key differentiators compared to its competitors.
