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.

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. Each model offers a host of safety and high-tech features. The well-constructed interior is luxurious and most controls are convenient. However, passenger room is very tight and the driving position is flawed.
