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

Overall rating

Many luxury automakers highlight their sedans' performance capabilities to attract attention. But what if you simply want a comfortable upscale sedan without the theatrics or sticker shock? Enter the 2019 Lexus GS 300.

Though the 300 is the entry-level model of the GS series of sedans, its turbocharged four-cylinder engine provides a nice mix of fuel efficiency and responsive acceleration. Similarly, the GS 300's suspension strikes a good balance between comfort and handling composure. Competitive pricing of the GS is another potential draw.

On the downside, this GS generation has been around a while. Style-wise, it won't land you at the front of a valet line. Also, Lexus' distracting-to-use infotainment system is one of the least appealing in the luxury segment. Overall, though, the GS 300 is a sedan worth considering.

Notably, we picked the 2019 Lexus GS as one of Edmunds' Best Midsize Luxury Sedans for this year.

2019 Lexus GS 300 models

The 2019 Lexus GS 300 comes in two trims: base and the GS 300 F Sport. They share the same turbocharged 2.0-liter engine (241 horsepower, 258 pound-feet of torque), an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive.

The base GS 300 includes 17-inch wheels, LED headlights, keyless ignition and entry, simulated leather upholstery, a sunroof, heated and power-adjustable front seats, driver-seat memory settings and an automatic climate control system.

Technology features include Lexus' Remote Touch infotainment interface, a navigation system, voice controls, smartphone app integration, a 12.3-inch display screen and a 12-speaker sound system. A broad range of driver safety aids — blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and the Lexus Safety System+ suite of advanced active safety features — are also included.

Heated and ventilated front seats, automatic wipers and a power rear sunshade are optional by way of the Premium package, and the available 18-inch wheel upgrade offers a same-cost choice between all-season and stickier three-season summer performance tires. A 17-speaker Mark Levinson sound system is also optional.

The F Sport version ups the ante on the handling front by adding 19-inch wheels with performance tires, a sport-tuned adaptive suspension, bigger front brakes, more aggressive front and rear styling, and a rear trunklid spoiler. Inside you'll find leather upholstery, power sport seats, all of the Premium Package content and different interior trim pieces.


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.


We've only tested the 3.5-liter V6 in the GS. For that engine, we measured a 0-60 mph time of 5.8 seconds. We have not tested a 300, but Lexus estimates a 0-60 mph time of 7 seconds, which should translate to adequate but far from exhilarating performance.


The GS' firm and sure brake pedal tends toward jumpy, but you'll readily get used to it. The car tends to exhibit some nosedive during harder stops, and our measured panic-stop distance from 60 mph is about average for premium sedans with summer-rated tires.


The GS cruises arrow-straight on the open road, and it feels nimble when taking turns.


In F Sport trim, the GS drives like a much smaller and lighter car. It feels nimble and delivers impressive cornering response, but it also provides a good deal of grip and overall stability.


We have not yet evaluated the 300's turbo engine and eight-speed transmission. In our test of the related IS 300 sedan, which has the same engine and transmission, we noted that the eight-speed automatic transmission's shifting can feel languid at times.


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.

Seat comfort

The optional F Sport seats are a highlight: sufficiently bolstered for sporty driving but still comfortable and easy to get out of. The seat bottoms deliver excellent thigh support, though some drivers did find them a bit flat. The seats are also heated and ventilated.

Ride comfort

An adaptive variable suspension system helps the F Sport split the difference between sport sedan and proper Lexus. The ride is generally smooth and controlled with little harshness on rough roads.

Noise & vibration

A bit of road noise emanates from the large (optional) summer performance tires, but it stops short of being bothersome. And there's precious little wind noise, even at elevated highway speeds.

Climate control

The dual-zone climate controls are prominently located, clearly marked and easy to understand. The vents put out a nice amount of air, and rear passengers have a pair of their own. The F Sport package adds heated and ventilated seats, and a heated steering wheel is optional.


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.

Ease of use

The majority of the GS' switches, buttons and knobs are easy to use and understand without cracking open the owner's manual. But there is one prominent sore spot that takes points off: the mouse-style infotainment system controller. It's novel but demands too much attention.

Getting in/getting out

There's much to like in this category. The doors open wide, the sills are narrow and, as sedans go, the seats are comfortably high. It's generally easy to get in or out without having to stoop or do deep knee bends.

Driving position

Numerous seat adjustments and a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel with a fairly generous adjustment range will make it easy for a wide variety of drivers to settle in comfortably at the controls and have a clear view out over the hood.


The GS 300 is a sizable car, with an interior to match. Up front you'll find lots of hip-, head- and legroom as well as shoulder room. The story is much the same in the back seat, unless front and backseat occupants are both quite tall.


A generous glass area gives the GS excellent forward and side visibility, and the rear three-quarter blind spot is minimal due to the carefully sculpted rear roof pillar. Front and rear parking sensors and a rear camera take care of the rest. High-beam headlights are fantastic on the open road, too.


Everything you touch in the Lexus GS 300 looks and feels high-quality and purpose-built. The important pieces — such as the steering wheel, the shifter and even the knee side of the center console — offer extra padding and quality leather.


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.

Small-item storage

It has a useful glovebox, two cupholders ahead of the shifter, and a medium-size center console that opens wide. The front door pockets are a decent size but won't hold a water bottle; the rear door pockets are just large enough to do so. The rear center armrest has a storage bin and cupholders.

Cargo space

The trunk is quite spacious because it is wide near the mouth, deep along the floor and accessible through a broad opening. Hidden hinges won't crush bags. The thing is, the rear seatbacks do not fold down to expand the space. A slender ski pass-through seems like a consolation prize.

Child safety seat accommodation

It has two pairs of LATCH anchors at the bottom and three top-tether anchors along the top. But the bottom LATCH anchors are tightly recessed between the seat cushions. Rear legroom is generous enough for most rear-facing seats to fit, but tall front occupants might still have to scoot up some.


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.

Consumer reviews

There are no consumer reviews for the Used 2019 Lexus GS 300 Sedan.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Lexus GS 300?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
