Overall Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: The 2013 Lexus GS 350 gains a little confidence and connectivity, while its competition gains some weight and complexity.
The Lexus GS sport sedans push Lexus even more directly up against the likes of the BMW 5-Series and the Jaguar XF in performance, but they push in a new, distinct direction with respect to styling and cabin appointments. With the new Lexus face on the outside and a special minimalist interior inside, swaddled in plush leather and LED lighting, the GS is warm and inviting in a way the German sedans aren't, and has a personality all its own. We're not complete converts on the styling, the driving feel, or the tech (like Remote Touch), but the new GS is a very good (and different) sport sedan.
