The 2016 New Lexus GS

The next generation Lexus GS models is now available bringing exciting enhancements to this already exhilarating model.

Initially the GS is available in 3 models with variables of each model:

• Lexus GS 300h - Available in Executive, Luxury, F SPORT and Premier editions

• Lexus GS 450h - Available in F SPORT and Premier editions

• Lexus GS F



What's new?

The GS is a totally new kind of Lexus saloon – one that was developed in the world’s most advanced driving simulator, and then tested over 1.6 million kilometres. Lexus started by increasing the chassis rigidity, fitting new dampers and engineering a new rear multi-link suspension. We then created a sophisticated aerodynamic concept that moves airflow closer to the vehicle body, to boost dynamic performance and steering precision. Enhancing the car’s class-leading refinement even further, smooth underbody covers and fins on the rear lights increase stability and reduce wind noise.


Interior design features

You’ll sense the amazing quality of the new GS when you first touch the beautifully stitched leather steering wheel or precision-machined aluminium audio controls. The car’s gleaming paintwork is wet sanded by hand (a time-consuming process normally reserved for coach-built cars) and checked by eye as well as digitally to ensure a perfect finish. Manufactured at the plant that built our iconic Lexus LFA supercar, GS production is overseen by Lexus ‘Takumi’ personnel. These highly trained master craftspeople rigorously check that every car meets our peerless quality standards.


Performance

GS 300h

The GS 300h is powered by the second-generation Lexus Hybrid Drive. This intelligently combines an advanced 2.5-litre direct-injection petrol engine with a high-output electric motor, while innovative Active Sound Control delivers a sophisticated engine note. The GS 300h is fun to drive, yet achieves 64.2 mpg*.

Select Electric Vehicle mode to progress in near silence, using no petrol and producing zero emissions. There’s plenty of luggage space too and, thanks to our leadership in hybrid technology, the GS 300h has the lowest running costs in its class. *For the Executive Edition.

GS 450h

The GS 450h delivers impressive Full-Hybrid performance. You can accelerate from 0-62 mph in just 5.9 seconds (up to 155 mph where permitted) while, overall, combined emissions of the GS 450h are just 141 g/km* and fuel consumption is only 46.3 mpg*. *For the Premier grade.





GS F

Incredible to drive, the new GS F four-door sports saloon is powered by a hand built 5.0-litre V8 petrol engine delivering 477 DIN hp and a top speed of 168 mph.

Equipped with a race bred eight-speed Sport Direct Shift automatic transmission and Torque Vectoring Differential, the GS F’s high-speed performance and handling characteristics were perfected on the Nürburgring in Germany.

Juxtaposing the awesome sound of its quadruple exhausts, inside you’ll enjoy a driver-focused cockpit, Alcantara trim and a peerless 12-speaker Mark Levinson® audio system.

Most importantly, breakthrough Lexus Safety System + (fitted as standard) ensures you stay safe wherever you drive.




More about Hybrid

Energy-management of the nickel-metal hydride battery is controlled by sophisticated software. This ensures the battery is recharged as necessary during driving, so that external charging is never required. The compact design contributes to significantly increased boot capacity.

With sufficient battery charge, EV mode lets you drive at lower speeds over shorter distances using just electric power. EV mode is whisper quiet, emissions-free and consumes no fuel. This is ideal, for instance, when driving in slow-moving traffic or enclosed car parks.

Safety and Technology


Lexus has always focused on the development of safety and driver support technologies, and tests all new models in the world’s largest driving simulator. Benefitting from our lead in accident prevention research, the new GS is now available with the breakthrough Lexus Safety System + (standard on all GS). This includes a Pre-Crash System with pedestrian detection; Advanced Lane Keeping Assist to help you stay on course; Road Sign Assist that presents traffic sign information to the driver; Automatic High Beam System for enhanced vision at night; and Adaptive Cruise Control, which regulates your speed to that of the vehicle in front.


Seating


In combination with leather upholstery, the driver and front passenger can individually heat or ventilate their seats as desired. This adds to the sense of bespoke luxury and is especially welcome in extreme weather conditions.


Multimedia

Multiple digital applications can be synchronised to the multimedia display. For example, a smart phone’s entire address book can be simply downloaded, and then scrolled through on the display. An iPhone® or other multimedia devices can be viewed and operated via different display screens.


Displays

The extra large 12.3-inch multimedia display allows driver and front passenger to interact using Remote Touch, while voice commands also control a number of applications. The split-widescreen is optimised for simultaneously viewing two types of information, for example large map display and DAB radio station information.
