The 2018 Lexus GS is a worthy rival to its German foes in terms of luxury and handling, but its engine lineup is falling behind the competition.

Pros
Handling and poise
Voluptuous sheet metal
Comfortable, supportive front seats
Crisp F Sport steering
Connectivity complete with Enform

Cons
F Sport's stiffer ride
Responsiveness in GS 300
Mediocre mileage for GS 350
Tight back-seat knee room
Cabin's plastic trim

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2018 GS 300 is a new name for last year's GS 200t. Otherwise, the car is unchanged.

PROS
Comfortable and spacious interior is generously appointed
Turbocharged four-cylinder engine delivers high fuel economy

CONS
Acceleration is nothing special
Trunk not expandable because rear seatbacks do not fold down
Entertainment and navigation system controller is hard to use
