Our engineers travelled the equivalent of 26 times around
the Earth to develop the peerless driving feel of the GS. Not one of those
kilometres was wasted; increased chassis' rigidity, new performance dampers to
deliver improved handling, and the development of a new rear multi-link
suspension. We then improved aerodynamics and reduced wind noise to create a
luxury saloon that exudes legendary Lexus luxury complemented with exhilarating
sporting performance. Beneath the muscular and athletic styling of the GS lies
an exceptionally quiet cabin, brimming with first-class luxury and technology.
Amazing to look at, but also incredibly enjoyable to drive; for instance, the
eight-speed paddle shifters are mounted in the steering wheel, putting sports
performance and exhilaration right where you want it - at your fingertips.
Although the GS can be driven in fully automatic mode, the
steering wheel mounted paddle shift controls offer a more immersive drive with
swift, manual gear changes.
Over 2,000 hours were spent optimising the design and
positioning of the Mark Levinson® surround sound speakers, to give you an
immersive audio experience.
Smart phones, and other multimedia devices, can be viewed and operated via different display screens, providing seamless digital connectivity while you're driving.
Both driver and front passenger seats can be heated or
ventilated individually to offer an extra level of comfort, whatever the
transport up to four suitcases or easily accommodate three sets of golf clubs.
Through the near perfect distribution of its two power
sources, the GS 300h and 450h provide driving comfort and agility, together
with lower emissions and fuel consumption. With Lexus Self-Charging Hybrid
you’re always charged, always ready to go.
