Based on these photos that were taken in dealer showroom (located in Taiwan, according to some readers) and published by our friends over at WFC, Lexus has updated the Asian market ES350 for the 2010 model year. The cosmetic changes are extremely subtle as they are limited to a more prominent front grille with additional chrome trim, a redesigned front bumper with a single opening and new fog lights along with a new design for the tail lamp crystals and the addition of turning signals on the exterior mirrors.
While Lexus has not announced any plans to revamp the North American market ES350, it wouldn't surprise us at all if the Japanese firm introduced a 2010MY with the same exact changes as the Asian market model before the end of the year.
