Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2021 Lexus ES-350 has a score of 77, implying a 0.046% chance of driver death (4.1% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2021 Lexus ES-350 has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0459% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 5.242%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0459% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 5.242% chance of being injured.

Lexus's Safety System+ active safety features can protect loved ones by reducing accident severity and preventing accidents. An active safety system that is standard on the 2021 Lexus ES-350 is Pre-Collision System with Brake Assist with Pedestrian Detection. Optional safety features on the 2021 Lexus ES-350 which we recommend include Lane Departure Alert with Lane Departure Alert and Blind Spot Monitoring.

Another vehicle feature may make a vehicle safer, even if not at the forefront of technological advances. Standard side mirror turn signals alert others of your intention to turn or switch lanes allowing them to react accordingly, which can prevent accidents caused by not seeing a vehicle in the blind spot.

And it is less safe than many comparable cars.
