Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

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. Despite its advancing age — the current generation has been around for five years — the GS still makes a compelling choice with a well-appointed interior, eager powertrain, sure handling and a smooth ride.

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

By:

For 2018, the Lexus IS 350 adds more horsepower, a rearview camera and, on rear-wheel-drive F Sport trims, a limited-slip differential. Adaptive front headlights are optional.

PROS
Ride quality is smooth and comfortable on bumpy roads
Cabin is well-isolated from noise
Offers more features for the money compared to German alternatives

CONS
Optional Remote Touch infotainment system is distracting to use
All-wheel drive limited to outdated six-speed transmission
Handling capabilities do little to create driver excitement

By: 
edmunds.com

Pros
Soft but supportive F Sport front seats
F Sport's motorized gauge cluster
Navigation system's 10.3-inch screen
Ride comfort on most surfaces
Backseat legroom

Cons
Weak turbo four-cylinder drivetrain
Sluggish, indecisive eight-speed automatic
Lack of steering feedback and athleticism
Frustrating Remote Touch controller
Some cheap-looking interior trim
Large ledge between trunk floor and folded backseat

Pros
Statement-making styling,
on-point chassis setup,
standard driver assists.

Cons
Subpar infotainment system,
below-average fuel economy,
engines need more oomph.
