  • Lexus GS (2012 - 2018)
    High quality and superbly built. Strong performance and relatively low CO2 from 450h. Impressively refined. GS F V8 fast but flawed.
  • Lexus GS (2005 - 2012)
    Very refined and quiet. Effortless performance from all engines. Hybrid GS450h is superbly refined. Stuffed with technology and equipment. Excellent crash test rating.
