Technology features remain one of the main emphases for this sport sedan. On the 2010 Lexus GS 460 and GS 450h, ventilated seats and adaptive lighting are included among the standard features, with an intuitive park-assist system and an active stabilizer system—which provides the advantage of a heavier stabilizer bar almost instantaneously without sacrificing ride quality—among the options.

Standard features on all the models include keyless entry, Bluetooth, and an excellent navigation system, but that's not even scratching the surface. Edmunds notes that the Lexus GS "comes with a long list of standard amenities that include 18-inch wheels, adaptive HID headlights, automatic dual-zone climate control, 10-way power front seats with heating and ventilation, a sunroof, keyless ignition and a 10-speaker premium audio system." Cars.com reports "a power tilt/telescoping steering wheel is standard" on the 2009 Lexus GS 460, but it's by far not the only standard feature.

Options include an Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) system, which gets four different firmness settings, plus laser cruise control, adaptive front lighting, ventilated cooled front seats, a power rear sunshade, and a DVD audio/video-compatible, 14-speaker Mark Levinson sound system. Edmunds calls the Mark Levinson audio system "phenomenal."

According to ConsumerGuide, the touch-screen control system seems as if it "governs too many functions, muddling what should be simple adjustments." It is the one flaw for which TheCarConnection.com takes a point off what might otherwise have been a perfect score for the Lexus GS.

Edmunds also states that "conventional summer (performance) tires are standard," but remarks that buyers "have the option of getting either summer or all-season run-flat tires"—a reminder that some will want two sets of tires.

Conclusion

The feature set for the 2010 Lexus GS models, offering an especially extensive list of tech options, is vast.

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.
