History / Overview
Lexus's mid-range luxury sedan is the GS, which slots in between the compact IS and full-size LS in the brand's lineup. The GS is unchanged for 2020.
Lexus offers the GS in a single trim, powered by a 3.5L V6 engine, a six-speed automatic transmission, and AWD.
GS standard interior features include auto up/down power windows, heated/ventilated front seats, leather upholstery, 10-way power front seat adjustments, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather-trimmed steering wheel and shifter, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, rear LED reading lights, a 12-speaker stereo, navigation, a sunroof, and a power rear window sunshade.
Outside, the GS is fitted with auto-leveling LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, rain-sensing wipers, 18-inch wheels, heated side mirrors, a power trunk closer, and passive keyless entry with push-button engine start.
The standard safety package comprises a front windshield de-icer, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, front parking sensors, forward collision detection with automatic braking, automatic high beams, radar cruise control, and lane departure warning with steering assist.
A F Sport 2 package adds triple beam LED headlights, a 17-speaker stereo, 19-inch wheels, sport seats, a head-up display, and an adaptive variable suspension.
An executive package also builds on the base model, adding the triple-beam headlights, an upgraded stereo, head-up display, heated rear seats, the Lexus climate concierge, a wood/leather-trimmed shifter, premium leather seating, 18-way power front seats, and butterfly headrests.
Lexus's fuel consumption estimates for the GS are 12.3/9.1 L/100 km (city/highway).
