2013 Lexus GS 350: Every Car Should Have a Cargo Net

April 24, 2013

2013 Lexus GS 350

This is so simple and yet so useful. And sadly, the cargo net is all too often regulated to the options sheet. Nothing illustrates this more profoundly that our Lexus GS350 F-Sport.

2013 Lexus GS 350: Trunk Features Part Two

January 18, 2013

2013 Lexus GS 350

Under the GS 350's trunk carpet and floor there's a space-saver spare. I always find it baffling when the simple five-spoke space saver wheel is better looking than the car's primary wheels. But I digress. As you can see by the headline, we're talking about the features in our GS 350's trunk.

And any trunk tour isn't complete without discussion of the spare. So there you go.

2013 Lexus GS 350: Trunk Features Part One

2013 Lexus GS 350

There are four cargo tie-downs and a cargo net in the GS 350's trunk. Normal stuff, really. But there's a lot going on in this trunk and it's not all the kind of thing I'd expect.

First up, the flip-down handle to hold plastic grocery bags upright while driving. Why every manufacturer doesn't do this is beyond me. But wait, there's more...

2013 Lexus GS 350

I recently took my wife and a friend of hers to the airport in our long-term Lexus GS 350. They're meeting in Las Vegas for a girls' weekend. (Yeah, it sounds like trouble to me, too.) Using the GS gave me the chance to test out how the trunk could handle multiple pieces of luggage.

2013 Lexus GS350: A Decent Shopping Partner

December 04, 2012

Midsize sedans are supposed to combine performance when you want it and a little bit more convenience when you need it, at least compared to compact sedans. 

At first glance I thought our Lexus had sacrificed it cargo room for the sake of a nifty rear suspension and four-wheel steering. Then I looked at the spec sheet. 

This GS has 14.3 cubic feet of trunk space. That's more than both the Audi A6 and the BMW 5 Series. The only real drawback to the trunk in the GS is the shape. I'm sure golf clubs will fit fine, but big square suitcases might have a little trouble. Works just fine for Christmas shopping though.
