2019 Lexus GS F Spy Shoot

Sponsored Links

The GS hopes you’ll look past its polarizing appearance and consider it a sports sedan worthy of competing with the best from Germany and elsewhere. The strength of the GS is its calm demeanor; it stays composed even over the harshest of road conditions. Its engines are suitably peppy and all-wheel drive is optional. There’s also a hybrid and the F Sport model has a sport-tuned suspension. The interior is comfortable, but the infotainment system is outdated.

When the Lexus GS arrived in the early 1990s—the original Giugiaro-designed one—its mission was to challenge the reigning mid-size luxury sedans from Audi, BMW, Jaguar, and Mercedes-Benz. Accordingly equipped with a choice of V-6 or V-8 engines, the second-generation model made such a convincing case that it won 10Best Cars accolades for three years running (1998 through 2000). It has been some time, though, since we could rank the GS at the top of the field. The current, fourth-generation GS is in its fifth year of production and finds itself squaring off against a Mercedes-Benz E-class and a Jaguar XF that were new in 2016, an Audi A6 that was facelifted last year, and an all-new 2017 BMW 5-series.

Lexus isn’t standing still, though. For its 2016 midlife refresh, Lexus added the value-priced base model tested here with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 241 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. That engine gives the newest GS variant a direct match for the 500-cc-per-cylinder fours that most of the European brands now have in equivalent models. The tail badge says GS200t, although the marketers call it the GS Turbo because, well, because Lexus marketers never had a turbo before, and it comes at a starting price that leaves some breathing room below $50,000, something you won’t find if you shop mid-size premium sedans at the German stores.
