Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). 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 2022 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 2022 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.

Active safety features with Lexus's Safety System+ greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. Active safety systems that are standard on the Lexus ES-350 include: Pre-Collision System with Brake Assist with Pedestrian Detection, 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.
