Lexus ES: Sixth GenerationUSA

Spotted: The 2016 Lexus ES 350 in Atomic Silver

Lexus USA

A 2016 Lexus ES in Atomic Silver has been spotted in Southern California, making it the first time the updated sedan has been seen on public roads.

The new ES debuted last month at the Shanghai Motor Show, and will be available in dealerships later in the year.

(Thanks Kaizen Factor!)

I hated how it looked at the reveal.. But I love how it looks here!
Toyota vehicles should NOT be allowed to sport the spindle grille or anything similar! Why does Toyota do that?! When Lexus has something good, it is always emulated onto a Toyota vehicle...

It looks really interesting!! And I really like how in the Middle-East specially in the UAE, its still a big hit for the ES. Cause its used for VIP taxies around the county! Its more like special taxi that you ask for... like #UBER taxi

Hmm, to be honest, I liked it better at the reveal. Perhaps it's the angle and lighting, but the grill has too many visible horizontal lines reminiscent of an air conditioner grille. I'll reserve final judgment with better pics or seeing it in person.

AGREED! I hate that the Camry has a "spindle" grille. We saw that Lexus wants to distance themselves from Toyota (which they have been doing very well lately), and then Toyota slaps a spindle grille on the Camry and said they wanted the rear to be more "ES like." It bothers me that the Avalon and Corolla have such a beautiful design that the Camry could have adopted but no, Toyota felt the need to copy Lexus with its grille. The next Camry better look nothing like a Lexus because it's giving people an excuse to say "rebadged Camry/Toyota." Anyways, these live wild shots look really fantastic! The silver is so much better than that horrible brown they revealed it in.

I've seen 2 so far here in the UAE. Not sure how successful it is but it didn't take off like the LX.

Not sure about how successful, but 6 months ago i don't think it was launched in the middle east.

I think it would look great with a F Sport grille...

My first thought was the mouth of a Humpback I have a 2013 ES and love the whole front end presentation. Paul "LOC"
