What alternatives should I consider to a used Lexus GS saloon?

Mentioning the BMW 5 Series may make you sigh since it seems to be the default alternative in this class, but that’s because it’s one of the best cars you can buy. There may not be the same number of hybrid versions available, but there are plenty of other engine options available that either match or exceed the economy provided by the GS. Plus, it’s great to drive and you’ll find it to be slightly more practical as a family car.

The Audi A6 is the king of premium interiors amongst its peers. The infotainment is much simpler to use compared with the one that Lexus uses and like the BMW, it’s got a vast range of engine choices to suit all needs.

Verdict

Very generous standard equipment and hybrid power help the Lexus GS stand out, but it isn’t the best luxury car to drive

  • Lots of standard equipment
  • Hybrid's fuel economy potential
  • Comfortable seats
  • Low-speed ride
  • No diesel
  • Awkward infotainment
