Lexus GS Overview

The GS competes well with other luxury sports sedans. It is engaging to drive, with good handling and a taut, supple ride, yet the cabin is quiet and roomy. Its strong 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 A fussy, distracting mouselike controller is used to work the infotainment system. A performance GS F, with a 467-hp V8, is available. The rear-drive GS 200t joins the line for 2016 with a 241-hp turbo four-cylinder. A blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert is standard for 2016. Reliability has been well above average.
