The newly styled 2013 Lexus GS 350 has people talking. Peterson Lexus is just thrilled about this new redesigned vehicle. The GS is a midsize luxury sedan that is classy, yet aggressive. The most obvious changes in the GS is the new front grille. The “spindle” grille is shaped like a stretched out hourglass. It will cause heads to turn. The rest of the exterior has been described as smooth and elegant. If you were a fan of the old body style, don’t worry, there are still traces of similarity. For the new GS Lexus has lengthened the rear deck just a touch all the while, sloping the sides down. This, combined with the two -inch increase in width, gives the GS a look where it appears lower to the ground making it more balanced visually.
The inside of the GS is as quiet and as smooth of ride as ever. Lexus has gone to great lengths to ensure a comfortable ride. It has been said that the optional 16 or 18 way adjustable seats are overkill, until you get out and sit in something else. You will be spoiled! How about being able to buy movie tickets or make dinner reservations right from the industry’s first ever 12.3 inch high-resolution split-screen multimedia display. It is clear that every detail in designing the new GS has the driver in mind.
Notice the extra thick fitted grip of the steering wheel, it’s LFA inspired.
