2011 Lexus GS 350 Safety

7.0
On Safety
While the GS sedans haven't been tested by the federal government, they earn ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) that are respectable, though not top-notch. The GS earns the top 'good' rating in frontal and side impact, but it only gets 'acceptable' ratings in rear impact and roof strength.

Standard features in the GS models include front side bags, side curtain bags, and dual front knee airbags; Lexus' more sophisticated VDIM stability control system and anti-lock brakes are also included across the line.

Active safety options include adaptive cruise control as well as an adaptive front lighting system that swivels the headlights and helps illuminate around corners.

Available active-safety features in the GS sedans go above and beyond, though its crash-test ratings aren't entirely impressive.

With high-set seats, steep rear glass, and a rather high rear deck, rearward visibility, especially when parking, isn't so great.
