The scheduled refresh of the 2010 Lexus ES 350 has been revealed by way of a dealership in Taiwan—here are the spy shots and some shots of the current ES 350 for easy comparison (click the spy shots for a larger version):
The changes center around the front end, where the grille, bumper and headlights have been subtly tweaked. The rear-view mirrors also get the integrated turn signals that have made their way across the entire Lexus lineup. The wheel design is also new.
There are no visual differences in the rear design. The rear lights have had a subtle change, with the clear strip at the bottom of the plastic cover.
All in all, it’s a light refresh—I do like the new grille quite a bit, and the new bumper air intake is much nicer than the current model. I’m surprised that more wasn’t done with the tail lights, but I am happy that they haven’t moved towards the RX/HS clear plastic.
Update: In my rush to post these images, I didn’t realize the chrome on the lower door panels was new. Also, I have updated the images.
