This year’s (2015) Monterey Car Week saw revelations and displays from world-class car manufacturers. Lexus made its contribution to the spectacle with its newly made-over executive saloon, the sumptuous GS.
Among the bold changes was the addition of an assertive full-length front grille, which gives the GS an imposing road presence and brings it in line with the rest of the Lexus range. New LED lights and sculpted bumpers add to its clean, fresh styling, and the alloy wheels have been upgraded to include new distinctive designs.
Lexus has also added new technology to the saloon, with its Safety System+ now included in the GS. This combines Pedestrian Detection, Lane Keep Assist, Adaptive High Beam System, Traffic Sign Recognition and All-Speed Active Cruise Control, to form a strong pre-crash line of defence.
Well known for pioneering hybrid technology, Lexus also debuted a new powertrain with this model. A 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine develops 238bhp, and it joins two other petrol hybrid powertrains that already feature in the GS range.
