Are you seeking a premium luxury sedan that delivers on all fronts? The winner might surprise you! Read on to see who wins in terms of exterior appearance, interior amenities and manufacturer’s warranty in this comparison of the Lexus ES 350 vs Hyundai Azera.
Lexus vs Hyundai
Though the Lexus ES 350 gained some updated styling, the exterior body is still rather conservative in appearance. The sleek lines of the ES help to reduce drag and increase aerodynamics, but this just doesn’t compare to the chiseled chassis of the Azera.
The Azera boasts more interior space than any other vehicle in its class. That’s not all. Starting with standard heated front and rear seats, the Azera provides plenty of entertainment and premium options for everyone such as ventilated front seats, premium audio systems, rear side-window sunshades and a power rear sunshade.
Less comes standard on the Lexus ES 350, at least when compared to the Hyundai Azera. For instance, leather is no longer standard at the base level. Seats are now vinyl and the heated and cooled features are still available, but as options or as a part of higher trim levels on the Lexus ES 350 models.
Once again, Lexus falls short of Hyundai. When it comes to warranty coverage, the 2013 ES 350 offers 4 years/50,000 miles of basic bumper-to-bumper warranty coverage. Powertrain protection isn’t much better, as the ES 350 includes just 6 years/70,000 miles of warranty coverage.
