Which GS 300 does Edmunds recommend?
The GS 300 F Sport's aggressive treatment feels out of place here. So opt for the standard model and add the Premium package. You'll get the coveted luxury car must-haves such as ventilated front seats, a power rear sunshade and a large 12.3-inch display. Consider getting the fabulous Mark Levinson sound system, too.
Edmunds' Expert Review
The Lexus GS 300 is nimble and moves out nicely, but it's also effortlessly smooth and poised. Acceleration is adequate but far from exhilarating.
Though the GS is a sport-oriented sedan, it doesn't abandon luxury. The optional F Sport seats are comfy, the ride is smooth, and the cabin is generally quiet and well-ventilated.
The 2017 GS 300 is blessed with a fairly roomy and comfortable interior that oozes quality and refinement. There's very little to complain about apart from one thing: the unique but awkward mouse-style interface that controls the entertainment and navigation system.
The GS' trunk is usefully shaped and quite big, but those who occasionally haul larger items will be disappointed by rear seats that do not fold down. The interior provides a reasonable but not memorable amount of storage, and it plays well with most child safety seats.
This cabin is behind the times when it comes to infotainment. The control interface is awkward and the native voice controls are subpar. There's no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto functionality and the screen graphics look old. A nice suite of driver aids is standard, however.
