Design

Like the dynamics and the interior the GS is arguably the most successfully designed car in the Lexus showroom. Its front end benefitted hugely from the addition of Lexus’s current pinched grille, the GS standing out against its familiar German rivals. There’s a real solidity to its bodywork, in a muscular rather than weighty sense, while the rear lights are neat and give some real visual width. F Sport models gain an even more assertive look at the front and unique alloy wheels making it the pick of the bunch if you really want to stand out.
