The unrecognized competitor of the A6 and 5 series
Renee, 6/27/2018
The Lexus GS350 is the luxury sport sedan that gives you the best of both worlds if you are looking for comfort and performance. It may lack a few seconds on the 0-60 time at 5.7 seconds compared to some of its German competitors, but makes up for that with the luxury features and overall quality expected from a Lexus. The F-Sport package gives the vehicle a unique styling and sportier appearance compared to the regular trim level on the GS. Lexus is a brand well known for its reliability, comfort, and quietness and of course all factors are taken into account with the GS350, but the performance singles this vehicle out from the rest of the Lexus lineup. The GS350 is made for those who do not necessarily need to feel the road while driving but still would like great acceleration and handling. Lexus is stereotyped to older clientele, but as a 21 year old the F-sport styling swept me off my feet, but the ride is what sold me on the vehicle. The Triple-beam LED headlights are a must have feature when buying this vehicle and not only look high-end from a mile down the road, but give you unbelievable visibility. I recommend anyone to test drive the GS350 if you are considering any of the other competitors to this vehicle.
The Real Deal
Stan, 8/10/2018
Perfect sporty and sophistication mix, throw in athletic handling, top of the line luxury inside and out, more tech features than you'll use, awesome sound system, excellent safety features, comfy seats and quiet smooth ride, ample power, and last but not least... incredible reliability, and you have a car to own that will take you on journeys for many, many, and many more miles without the fear of the auto breaking down. Now that's a Real Deal. Not to mention it looks wonderful too. This car is one to buy and keep until it's old and gray.

More about the 2018 Lexus GS 350

Slotting between the less sporty Lexus ES and LS models, the 2018 Lexus GS 350 takes aim at drivers who crave a bit of performance from their luxury sedan.

With a firmer ride and crisper handling than you'll find in the ES and LS, which tend to favor pure comfort over performance, the GS turns up the excitement when the road turns winding. That's not to say the GS is any less a luxury car, because it isn't — you'll still find all the features and options you'd expect from a Lexus.

The company offers a slightly confusing roster of GS models for 2018, including everything from a fuel-efficient hybrid to a roaring V8. The GS 350, with its 311-horsepower 3.5-liter V6, might be the best all-arounder for buyers looking to balance performance and comfort. Lighter and more nimble than the hybrid (GS 450h) yet with a more compliant ride than the more aggressive F Sport trims (and definitely cushier than the all-out high-performer GS F), the Lexus GS 350 stands out as a luxury sedan that doesn't sacrifice speed or handling. It even manages to return an EPA-estimated 23 mpg combined (20 city/28 highway).

Lexus' luxury amenities include heated and ventilated leather seats, automatic wipers, LED headlights, the Remote Touch infotainment system, and a trick climate system that recognizes where people are seated in the car and optimizes airflow based on that information. Buyers seeking even more performance can upgrade to the F Sport trim, which adds more aggressive wheels and tires, adaptable suspension, bigger brakes and either all-wheel steering or a limited-slip differential. The GS 350 is also available with all-wheel drive.

The upscale interior, available with optional wood accents, is spacious, quiet and comfortable. All but the tallest passengers should have no complaints about leg- or headroom in either the front or rear seats. Rear passenger comfort can be upgraded even further with optional independent climate control and audio controls.

Peace of mind comes standard: Not only does Lexus have a reputation for making reliable cars, but the GS 350 comes with a host of safety features and excellent crash test ratings. Optional forward collision mitigation with automatic braking and pedestrian detection is also available.

With impressively precise and nimble handling, powerful acceleration, and a big helping of quality and comfort, the Lexus should be on the list of any buyer interested in a luxury sports sedan. If the 2018 Lexus GS 350 is on your list, let Edmunds help you figure out which trim and features will make it the perfect car for you.
