Comfortable, supportive front seats
Crisp F Sport steering
Connectivity complete with Enform

Cons
F Sport's stiffer ride

The Lexus GS 350 rolls into 2018 without significant changes.The 2018 Lexus GS 350 is a multitalented luxury sedan that artfully blends comfort, sophistication and performance.

PROS
Comfortable and spacious interior feels rich and luxurious
All-wheel drive and high-performance versions cover most driver needs

CONS
Trunk not expandable because rear seatbacks do not fold down
Entertainment and navigation system controller is hard to use
