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.
