Lexus redesigned its GS sedan with the goal of making it sportier, but the new sedan falls short of the competition.
The new 3.0-liter V6 is smooth and mated to a six-speed automatic, but it isn't as strong as the V6 from Acura and Infiniti.
The 4.3-liter V8 continues in the GS430.
Driving excitement isn't the GS' strength.
The steering is slow and numb, and the car lacks agility.
