I think I was going to ask the same question... I just got a 2016 XLE last Friday, and I see that there looks like a long LED strip above the headlight. I was going to post this question just now, and even took a pic of my headlight for reference... I'll attach it here... I have the DRL option (or standard option... lol...) but they don't light up...Looking at the top of the headlights on my 2016 xle and it looks like the led drls are there just not wired.Is this true or wishful thinking.
It seems on the older models this is true. But on my 2016 XLE hybrid redesign headlights you can clearly see leds in the headlights.I have checked the forum and the consensus is that there are no leds in the light. They are standard in Europe but not in North America.
This is a pic of my new 2016 XLE non-hybrid. It looks like there's something in there, but can't quite tell, and it's still too new to start ripping it apart... lol... Really wish it could be lit... (talking about the thin strip just above the headlight...)It seems on the older models this is true. But on my 2016 XLE hybrid redesign headlights you can clearly see leds in the headlights.
