What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For The GS is hushed, refined and has masses of kit

Against It loses value from new faster than most rivals

Verdict It's the most refined car in its class

Go for… The base 300

Avoid… The 450h SE-L hybrid

Lexus GS Saloon
  • 1. The GS feels serene, although there's so little feedback through the controls you feel detached
  • 2. The brakes and suspension are the areas most likely to need work, although the bills are modest for an executive car
  • 3. The engines and transmissions are pretty near faultless, as long as that servicing is kept up
  • 4. The boot is enormous but, to reach its farthest corners, you need to be tall
  • 5. The shape of the driver’s seat won’t suit everyone, and the position of some minor controls can prove confusing
