Lexus GS Overview

The GS is a competitive luxury sports sedan in terms of ride, handling, quietness, and roominess. A strong 306-hp, 3.5-liter V6 is the standard engine. New for 2014 is an eight-speed automatic on the rear-wheel drive versions. All-wheel drive is optional, and uses a six-speed automatic. A 338-hp hybrid version with CVT is also available. Interior space is on par for the class and the cabin is nicely furnished. A mouse-like controller works the navigation system and audio controls, but it is fussy and distracting to use. The car is engaging to drive, with good handling and a taut, yet supple ride. Reliability of the GS has been above average.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
