SAFETY | 7 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

'Good,' frontal impact; 'good,' side impact; 'acceptable,' rear impact; 'acceptable,' roof strength
IIHS

Not yet rated
NHTSA




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.

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

Conclusion

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

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
