2016 Lexus ES Teased Ahead of Global Debut at 2015 Shanghai Auto Show


SHANGHAI, China — The redesigned 2016 Lexus ES midsize luxury sedan is being teased ahead of a global debut on April 20 at the 2015 Shanghai Auto Show.

A single teaser photo of the 2016 ES reveals a new grille and headlights. But a radical makeover does not appear to be in the works.

"The new Lexus ES maintains its classical elegance while conveying a more dynamic experience and luxurious craftsmanship," Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. said in a statement on Friday.

Pricing, launch timing and technical specifications have not been released. The 2016 ES is expected to arrive at Lexus dealerships later this year.

The refined ES has been a mainstay in the Lexus lineup. More than 1.7 million have been sold globally over the past 25 years, according to Toyota.

Key competitors to the Lexus ES include the Acura TLX, Buick LaCrosse, Cadillac XTS and Kia Cadenza.

Edmunds says: Luxury shoppers will be watching closely to see what kind of changes are in store for the most traditional car in the Lexus lineup.
