Though the 2016 Lexus ES 300h and its predecessor look similar in most aspects, such as both have the same spindle grille and their overall design is more or less similar. However, Lexus has taken much effort to make the new ES 300h differ greatly from its predecessor by offering it a lot sharper, more aggressive design cues.
2016 Lexus ES 300h Changes
What makes the new Lexus ES 2016 mid-size sedan exactly differ from its predecessor in terms of exterior styling is that it comes with a recently designed grille, bordered by vivid satin chrome, which is fixed high up to the cover for a more fluid exterior look. Other major external change is the narrow headlights equipped with LED projectors that balance the bolder L-fashioned arrowhead daylight running lamps, which are extended outward in the direction of the grille. With the introduction of four new body colors, with self-curative technologies, such as Nightfall Mica, Amber, Eminent White Pearl and Caviar, it is expected to come with 10 body colors.
Lexus ES 300h 2016 Interior
The hybrid expected to come with a stylish cabin, so buyers can search for somewhat more personality within the cabin by means of a sportier steering wheel. The seats inside the cabin are embellished and they are provided with four unbiased colors. Buyers can decide from regular leather, semi-aniline leather and Lexus NuLuxe artificial material, which will offer a feeling just similar to the real thing. The new 2016 Lexus ES 300h comes with many dissimilar trim options, including Shimamoku wood decoration, piano black, and bamboo by means of a matte finish. The new vehicle is also designed with additional noise insulation at the back of the dashboard in order that the engine noises somewhat quieter to the passengers inside the cabin.
New Lexus ES 300h Specs
Under the hood, the 2016 Lexus ES will be fixed with a fresh four-cylinder, 2.0-liter direct-injection engine. However, this engine will not be offered to the United States models. Instead, for the U.S. market, the new ES 300H will come with a 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle engine with four cylinders and a Toyota’s hybrid system to provide the vehicle with the maximum of 200 HP power. Moreover, the new vehicle is expected to come with the front-wheel drive mode only. From 0-60 mph this Lexus goes for 6.5 seconds with top speed of 130 mph.

Price and the release date
Lexus remains tight-lipped regarding the price and the release date of its new 2016 ES 300h mid-size sedan, but it is expected that it will hit the market sometime during the concluding part of 2015. However, with the unconfirmed price, the new 2016 Lexus ES 300h will be available at a price, which will be more than that of the current price of $40,580 of the outgoing model.
