Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Lexus GS 450h carries over unchanged from 2017.With just one trim level, the GS 450h is very easy to buy. There are stand-alone options such as a Mark Levinson surround-sound audio system, a power trunklid and parking sensors, and they're all relatively affordable.

PROS
Excellent fuel economy for a midsize luxury sedan
Comfortable and spacious interior is richly appointed
Still reasonably quick and sporty

CONS
Substantial cost premium over GS 350
Infotainment interface can frustrate

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 2018 Lexus GS Hybrid ranked #6 in Luxury Midsize Cars. Currently the Lexus GS Hybrid has a score of 8.5 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 28 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Refined, quiet cabin
Comfortable, spacious seats
Impressive list of standard safety and technology features
Lively, refined hybrid powertrain

Cons
Cumbersome, distracting infotainment controller
Mediocre fuel savings for a hybrid
Much pricier than other GS models

The S4’s understated looks won’t snap necks on the street, but its 354-hp turbo 3.0-liter V-6 and all-wheel-drive traction can realign your spine on demand. Sorry stick-shift purists, an eight-speed automatic is the sole gearbox. With standard massaging front seats and premium interior materials, the sophisticated sedan also pampers passengers.

Pros
Solid performance,
stealthy road presence,
refined and high-tech cabin.

Cons
Short on engagement behind the wheel,
fierce competitors in the same showroom.

The 2018 Audi S4 balances perfectly performance with luxury in a package that's both practical and sharp. Hardly a recipe for excitement, but one that touches all the bases.

Pros
Sharp exterior
Comfortable in front or back
Plentiful power from V-6
Comfortable ride
Good standard equipement

Cons
Transmission seems hesitant
Finicky optional sport steering
Drama-less?
Missing S5's power dome

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Pros
Strong acceleration
Nimble handling
Well-appointed interior

Cons
Small trunk
Looks too conservative
Clunky start/stop system
