The 2016 ES gets an updated face that includes the latest version of Lexus’s spindle grille. The updated face also gets new headlights with LED projector technology and “L”-shaped arrowhead Daytime Running Lights (DRL) extend outside the headlight element for a distinctive look that links it with other Lexus models. The fog lights have also been redesigned and are now located on the outer lower corners of the front fascia. The rear gets updated taillights, a e-stylized chrome license plate garnish and newly sculpted chrome-tipped rectangular exhaust ports. Lastly the 2016 ES gets new 17-inch wheels and four new exterior colors: Amber, Nightfall Mica, Caviar, and Eminent White Pearl.
