ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

Lexus has an unbelievable lineup across the board, and of all those models, the GS 350 is pretty subtle. One thing that isn't subtle, however, is its reliable supply of performance choices, among so much else. Check out these five reasons to buy the 2017 Lexus GS 350.

Powerful Precision

The GS 350 has one engine, a 3.5-liter V6 good for a commanding 311 horsepower. Now if you haven't experienced a Lexus drive, we highly recommend it, as they do an excellent job of blending power, smoothness and precision. Lexus also offers a choice of rear- or all-wheel drive. Of course, the F Sport upgrade adds to a fun driving experience, as it's more performance-inspired, and yes, there's an AWD option for the F Sport trim level, too.

Standard Safety

Lexus is serious about safety, as they're very generous in the standard safety-feature department. The GS 350 has standard lane-departure warning and automatic emergency braking. There's also standard adaptive cruise control and blind spot monitoring. All of this innovative safety is called Lexus Safety System Plus, and now that it comes standard, it's just an added bonus for buyers.

Endless Features

The GS 350 comes pretty loaded out of the gate, whereas other luxury brands charge up for these type of features. The list includes a sunroof, power and heated front seats and even an innovative climate control system. There's also an available full-color head-up display, which really is worth the extra bucks, as it puts some very useful information right in your field of view.

Design

From a design standpoint, the GS 350 still stays true to its roots from years ago. There are standard LED headlights, heated mirrors and 18-inch wheels. Go for the F Sport and you'll get stylish 19's. The F Sport trim level also has some styling elements both in the front and back that give it a more aggressive look. In either form, though, from the base trim level on up, the GS 350 is beautiful.

Top Technology

As far as technology goes, up front is a massive 12.3-in split-screen that's really one of a kind. The high-resolution screen can do all sorts of stuff, like cool 3-D city views and so much more. We highly recommend the available Mark Levinson Sound System, with an amazing 17 speakers that produce a very powerful 835 watts.

Autotrader Says

Some have called the GS 350 a performance sedan. But regardless, there's no denying its high quality, reliability and top-notch features. It's time you experienced the 2017 Lexus GS 350.
