Design

First Class Comfort

There are no sacrifices with GS’ comfortable interior configuration. Featuring generous rear passenger room, GS has ample seating space for up to five adults.

Interior Craftsmanship

Our grand touring sedan is designed for sophisticated comfort. The wood trim is complemented by ambient interior lighting. From handcrafted contrast stitching to a classic analog clock ‘carved from a single bar of aluminum’ the subtle hints of luxury abound on GS.

Precision Crafted Exterior

GS flexes some muscle with sculpted lines and a low centre of gravity. The bold spindle grille is finished in satin chrome and paired with LED low beam and LED L-shape arrowhead daytime running lights. The L-shape LED tail lamps create an eye catching rear-design.

Interior highlights include: aluminum sport pedals with rubber inserts, F SPORT  leather seats, and a 3-spoke F SPORT  steering wheel.

Performance

311 Horsepower GS 350 AWD

A stirring experience awaits with a 3.5-litre, 311hp engine. Combining direct fuel injection and additional port fuel injectors results in crisp responsiveness and impressive power. Throw in the 6-speed sequential shift with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters and you have a vehicle touting equal parts luxury and high performance.

Responsive GS 450h Hybrid

Pioneering luxury hybrid technology, Lexus builds performance driven vehicles without the corresponding carbon footprint. GS 450h is moving forward with a responsive 286hp engine, with a continuously variable transmission, taking you from 0-100km/h in 5.6 seconds.

Drive Mode Select

Not every drive is the same. As a result, your GS comes prepared. Outfitted with three distinct modes: Eco, Normal, and Sport. You can be sure to make the best of fuel efficiency in Eco, enjoy a regular drive in Normal, and exceed performance expectations in Sport. An available S+ mode (that comes standard on F SPORT  packages) tightens the suspension and increases the steering wheel response creating an even sharper acceleration with more a direct vehicle response.

F SPORT  Performance

Adaptive Variable Suspension in the front and rear enrich the drive along with Drive Mode Select. The instrument panel glows red as powertrain input is enhanced and stability control parameters are relaxed for less intrusion. A head-up display system keeps pertinent information on the windshield, for a noticeably futuristic experience.

Advanced All-Wheel Drive (AWD)

Lexus GS 350 AWD includes front, rear and centre differentials and distributes 70 percent of the drive power to the rear wheels and 30 percent to the front. When wheel slippage occurs in less than ideal road conditions, the system employs traction control to achieve improved traction by automatically transferring power, with up to 50 percent being transferred to the front wheels. The result is a lightweight system that delivers high levels of stability and drivability.

Blind Spot Monitor* with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert#

Employing a quasi-millimeter wave radar installed on the back of the vehicle, GS’ blind spot monitor (BSM) system can detect a vehicle present in adjacent lanes and can also detect an object at the rear of the vehicle while it is backing up. The BSM is coupled with a rear cross-traffic alert system that is designed to warn you of cars that are entering your path when backing out of a parking space.

It is not a collision-avoidance system and is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving. System effectiveness depends on many factors. Please see your Owner's Manual for further information.

17. Whiplash Injury Lessening (WIL)
Whiplash Injury Lessening (WIL) front seats can help reduce the extent of whiplash in certain types of rear end collisions.

Automatic high beam feature can help improve vision at night. However, conditions such as a dirty windshield, rapidly changing light conditions or hilly terrain will limit effectiveness so the driver may need to manually adjust the highbeams from on to off. Please see your Owner’s Manual for details.
