Lexus GS Overview

The GS competes well with other luxury sports sedans, delivering a balanced combination of ride, handling, quietness, and roominess. Its strong 306-hp, 3.5-liter V6 returned 21-mpg overall in our tests. A 338-hp hybrid version with CVT is also available. Interior space is on a par with the class, and the cabin has the requisite luxury trim and materials throughout. A fussy, distracting mouselike controller is used to work the navigation system and audio controls. The car is engaging to drive, with good handling and a taut yet supple ride. A performance GS F joins the line with a 467-hp V8. Reliability has been well above average.
