A raft of newly available options brings the GS into the modern age; they include a head-up display, night vision, blind-spot warning, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, and a driver-drowsiness monitor.

Lexus has also seen fit to introduce a head-up display that's functionally identical to the system General Motors has been using for years in such vehicles as the Chevrolet Corvette and Cadillac CTS.

There's plenty of glass, visibility is good and the center console doesn't rise too high.

The 2014 Lexus GS comes with a slew of safety technologies, some sold in option packages. The GS' standard cruise control can be upgraded to active cruise control with a pre-collision warning system and braking intervention. A head-up display and night vision are offered, as are blind-spot monitors. Finally, a new lane-departure warning system works with a lane-keeping system to gently steer the GS back into its lane if the car's sensors detect a drift out of its proper driving lane.

The new GS also gets a lot more progressive about the way it tries to prevent accidents. The airbag count goes up to ten, with dual front and side airbags joined by curtain and rear-seat side airbags as well as front knee airbags. Active headrests are standard, and so are a rearview camera and parking sensors--and Bluetooth, which we consider a safety device.

In last year's assessment of the GS by the IIHS, it received a top rating of 'good' across the board in all tests, but without small-overlap crash data, it doesn't earn the Top Safety Pick award. The NHTSA has not yet rated the Lexus GS.

Conclusion

An IIHS Top Safety Pick, the Lexus GS earns excellent crash-test scores and has all kinds of optional safety technology.

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.
