Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Add more power and the 2018 Lexus GS F could stare down any high-performance sport sedan from Germany.

Pros
Sharp handling
Quality, cockpit-like interior
Ready power
Room for five
Engaging to drive

Cons
Not as otherworldly powerful as rivals
A bit too much natural understeer
Remote Touch requires manual dexterity

The Lexus GS F's standard safety tech gets an upgrade for 2018. The adaptive cruise control system now works at all speeds, meaning that it'll work in stop-and-go traffic. The lane departure warning system has been upgraded to include lane keeping assist, meaning the car will automatically provide steering assistance to keep you from straying from your lane.

PROS
Uncommonly rewarding to drive, with outstanding steering
Upscale cabin design
Great sounds from the non-turbocharged V8
Remote Touch tech interface is difficult and distracting to use

CONS
Back seat doesn't fold down
Turbocharged competitors ultimately offer more thrust
