Benefits of Driving a 2013 Lexus GS Models Sedan

The Lexus GS competes with midsized sedans from luxury manufacturers such as Audi, BMW and Mercedes. With a powerful engine, sport-tuned suspension and an available F SPORT edition; the GS checks all the right boxes for a sports sedan-- and the availability of options like all-wheel-drive and a hybrid drivetrain add a further layer of versatility to the genre. A brand-new redesign means that the Lexus is packed full of the latest gadgets and technology. From the latest energy efficient climate control system to Bluetooth connectivity to the advanced direct injection engine, the 2013 Lexus GS is an up to date, modern take on the midsized sports sedan.

What's new for 2013?

Lexus has redesigned their midsized sedan for the 2013 model year. Sporting a more aggressive and extroverted look, Lexus is looking to transform the GS into a legitimate sports sedan without compromising the spacious interior or legendary reliability that made the midsized sedan a hit in the first place.

Model Strengths

  • Luxurious but sporty with an available hybrid drivetrain

Model Review

If a car has sporting pretentions, it ought to have a good engine. Thankfully the engine in the GS is a gem. It's a 3.5L unit that produces a very healthy 306 horsepower. The engine features four valves per cylinder, variable valve timing and direct injection. The Lexus manages to hit 60 miles per hour in 5.7 seconds while still averaging 23 mpg in combined highway/city driving. The engine is mated to a state of the art automatic transmission, incorporating several nifty features taken from the IS-F high performance sports sedan. Downshifts can now be automatically blipped, and upshifts come with less hesitation. The transmission has several settings, including an eco-mode which revises the throttle mapping and climate control systems for a more fuel efficient journey.
