SHEER DRIVING PLEASURE

LUXURIOUS, POWERFUL, UNFORGETTABLE: THE GS 250 IS SHEER DRIVING PLEASURE.

The GS 250 is extraordinary – to look at, to sit in and to drive. Built in the most award-winning plant on earth, the GS 250 is an incredibly enjoyable car to drive with smooth and rewarding 2.5-litre V6 performance. Our design approach is at its most striking in the dramatic front spindle grille and inside the car, luxury, comfort, craftsmanship and innovation combine in perfect harmony. The GS was tested over 1.5 million kilometres of driving – on our own driving simulator (the most advanced in the world), on the open road and at Germany’s legendary Nürburgring

Inside, over 2,000 hours were spent optimising the design and position of the 17 Mark Levinson® speakers and the driver’s seat alone took over five years to perfect. We stopped at nothing in the creation of this amazing car. The GS 250 can be specified with one of the largest multimedia displays available today – 12.3” full-colour split-screen in ultra-wide 24:0 format. And Drive Mode Select lets you choose between up to four drive modes (ECO to SPORT S+) to fine tune performance The GS 250 is available in three grades; Comfort, Luxury and F SPORT.

Safety in the GS 250 - The Highlights

THE HIGHLIGHTS

Safety in the GS is taken very seriously – a raft of occupant protection, impact avoidance and driver aid technologies are on hand to ensure a safe journey each time you drive. The dynamic control systems that deliver the most confident drive are also there to provide an assured drive whatever the conditions. Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, are just two of the clever safety ideas that are packed into this car.

Ten airbags and seatbelt pre-tensioners help to protect the people inside the car and our Advanced Pre-Crash Safety system is there not only to warn of potential hazards, but to take evasive action too if necessary. The Head-Up Display, which projects key information such as speed onto the windscreen, and the Driver Monitoring System which can tell if the driver is not looking at the road are there to help the driver keep their eyes on the road at all times. Intelligent lighting that swivels into corners to illuminate more of the road ahead helps keep the driver aware of all surroundings and enjoy the drive with confidence.

Inside the GS 250 - The Highlights

THE HIGHLIGHTS

The roomy interior of the GS 250 is packed with luxurious design and technological breakthroughs which take driving and passenger pleasure to new levels. Strikingly crafted detail – such as the precision LED analogue clock – sits in absolute harmony with the very latest innovations like the 12.3-inch full-colour LED screen: one of the widest multimedia displays available today.

Powerful, yet energy efficient, intelligent 3-zone S-Flow only controls the climate of occupied seats. Another breakthrough technology, nanoe® deodorises upholstery and moisturises your skin. The GS 250 is also the perfect place to enjoy a peerless Mark Levinson® live concert experience. And with a boot that can accommodate five suitcases or four sets of golf clubs, the GS 250 is not only smooth and refined to drive, but practical too.

Intelligent lighting

INTELLIGENT LIGHTING

Full Light Emitting Diode (LED) headlights are not only beautiful, they are also clever. The Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS) can swivel the headlight beams into bends as you drive into them, illuminating more of the road ahead. And Automatic High Beam (AHB) monitors light levels at night and will automatically switch to low beam when oncoming headlights, or the rear lights of vehicles ahead, are detected.

The GS is now optionally available with full LED headlights, specified with AFS and AHB. Jewel-like headlights packed with technological innovation.

To light your exit, the GS's low-beam headlights and puddle lights can be activated to remain on for 30,60, 90 or 120 seconds.

Suspension

SUSPENSION

The new suspension technology is designed to increase ride comfort and confidence and, coupled with a new, stiffer chassis, makes for a more dynamic and pleasurable drive. Featuring forged aluminium components, the double wishbone front suspension is now lighter and more responsive.

Straight-line and cornering stability are significantly enhanced by geometry and layout revisions to the multi-link rear suspension. A combination of high-tensile steel, die-cast and forged aluminium components reduce weight yet increase strength and precision.

You can test drive the GS yourself at your nearest dealership.

Lexus Hotspot

LEXUS HOTSPOT

A special automotive design enables connectivity for up to 5 WiFi phones, tablets and other mobile devices. It wires in to the cars electrics, has a high speed antenna and uses your choice of Sim card.

V6 Petrol Engine

V6 PETROL ENGINE

As with all Lexus engines, each one of the GS 250’s 2.5-litre V6 petrol engines is fired up on a test bench and personally inspected by experts (even to the extent of listening to the hum with a stethoscope) before it goes into the car. This aluminium-alloy V6 features D-4S direct injection technology and smoothly accelerates from 0 -100 km/h in just 8.6 seconds with an impressive maximum speed of 225 km/h.

It is mated to a close-ratio 6-speed automatic transmission which drives the rear wheels and features sequential shift mode. You can choose to drive in fully automatic mode or select manual M mode to change gears yourself. Driver involvement is enhanced by making rapid gear shifts via the steering wheel mounted paddle shift controls. Superbly balanced, the GS 250 is an extremely rewarding drive.

Try the V6 engine for yourself and book a test drive.

Occupant protection

OCCUPANT PROTECTION

As well as the sophisticated suite of advanced impact avoidance technologies, the GS is also equipped with driver and passenger protection, just in case. The car’s immensely strong passenger safety cell is made of very light, yet exceptionally strong, high-tensile steel. Crumple zones front and rear, side protection measures and the structure of the safety cell are designed to absorb and disperse impact energy before it reaches the cabin.

The GS has ten airbags, protecting the driver and the passengers. In the front, sensor-controlled two-stage airbags register the intensity of an impact plus the position of the seat and deploy accordingly. Knee airbags for both front seats provide additional protection and curtain shield airbags run the entire length of each side of the interior. Side airbags, front and rear, complete the comprehensive protective shield.

Interior comfort

INTERIOR COMFORT

The interior of the GS is as generous as it is quiet, with plenty of room to accommodate up to five people, plus their luggage, in complete comfort. The sophisticated air conditioning system only provides climate control to seats that are occupied thanks to energy-efficient intelligent S-Flow technology. Its breakthrough nanoe® technology not only purifies the air and deodorises the seats and upholstery, but it also moisturises the skin as the moisture content of nanoe® ions is 1,000 times that of conventional ions.

The sumptuous driver seat was over five years in the making, resulting in 18-way electric adjustments for personalised and complete comfort. It features a lower hip point, keeping you closer to the car’s centre of gravity for a more pleasurable drive. The driver seat has an electrically extending seat cushion, whilst the front passenger benefits from an extendable calf support, making the GS luxuriously relaxing. Ambient LED lighting welcomes you as you approach and enter the car and soft tactile finishes round off the feeling of premium comfort.

Lexus Connected Services

LEXUS CONNECTED SERVICES

The GS offers next-generation services like Online Search, Google Street View ®, Panoramio ® or Connected Traffic. For extra convenience you can even forward a route from your laptop or tablet to your car's navigation system.

The high resolution 12.3-inch screen is operated by Remote Touch or voice commands. With vivid 3D graphics and many mapping options, once parked, the system can even generate a QR code for your smartphone, to help you reach your final destination on foot.

Multiple digital applications can be synchronised to the multimedia display. For example, a smarthpone's entire address book can be simply downloaded, and then scrolled through on the display.

Luggage space

LUGGAGE SPACE

The boot space in the GS 250 is both practical and generous thanks, in no small part, to the intelligent and compact design of the rear multi-link suspension. It has a load carrying capacity of 556 litres which can comfortably transport five suitcases or easily accommodate four sets of golf clubs.

Adaptive cruise control

ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL

Adaptive Cruise Control is supplied with the Lexus Pre-Crash Safety system as it uses the same millimetre-wave radar system. Just like a conventional cruise control system, it maintains a pre-set speed for the car; however, thanks to the radar, it can detect a slower moving vehicle ahead. The system then reduces speed accordingly by easing off the throttle or applying the brakes.

You can set a specific following distance between you and the car ahead and the system will maintain it by matching the speed of the vehicle in front. Once the road is clear again, Adaptive Cruise Control smoothly resumes your original cruising speed.

Aerodynamics

AERODYNAMICS

A bold new approach to the GS allowed us to incorporate intelligent airflow management into the design: from the closable vents in the dramatic front spindle grille to the fins on the rear lights, each aerodynamic touch is engineered to increase driving stability and contributes towards the car’s outstanding high speed stability.

We employed a concept called ‘aerodynamic damping’ which moves the airflow closer to the car’s body to enhance handling. The flow is smoothed in and around the wheel arches (which are shaved by hand) and air pressure is then reduced in the arch itself – this gives a better steering response, creates a flatter ride and enhances road holding. The GS offers an energetic and dynamic drive with a drag coefficient of just 0.27.

Mark Levinson® Premium Audio

MARK LEVINSON® PREMIUM AUDIO

Mark Levinson® is one of the most sought-after high-end audio equipment makers in the world. Since 1972, their reputation for pure musical reproduction has been legendary as has their systems’ uncanny ability to reproduce audio subtleties and nuances with nothing added and nothing taken away from the original performance. Mark Levinson himself built the stage mixer used at Woodstock in 1968 and has since been credited as the founder of the high-end audio industry.

Despite approaches from several luxury car manufacturers, we are the only one featuring ultra-high quality Mark Levinson® equipment. As Lexus cars are scientifically engineered to provide a highly refined and quiet ride, they provide the perfect acoustic opportunity for a ‘concert hall in a car’ experience. The Mark Levinson® system in each Lexus model is painstakingly optimised, components adjusted, speakers positioned and tuning applied to address its unique acoustic environment.

Over 2,000 hours were spent optimising the design and positioning of the Mark Levinson® speakers in the GS. With 7.1-channel digital surround sound you experience a true live concert experience when listening to music and watching DVDs; beautifully consistent and with a whole new level of definition. Producing a total of 835 Watts it only consumes a quarter of the power of its predecessor, thanks to GreenEdge™ technology in each speaker which produces twice the sound for the same energy. For your convenience, there is also a USB port, an AUX socket and two 12 V power sockets.

You can experience this extra-ordinary sound system at your local dealership. Find your local dealer here.

Upholstory & inlay choice

UPHOLSTORY & INLAY CHOICE

An attractive interior colour scheme with a versatile palette, offers a variety of personalisation options. The dashboard, floor and steering wheel are uniformly black to create a sporting, luxurious feel. With leather upholstery specified, intricate stitching in matching or contrasting colour accentuates the premium ambience of the interior. Upholstery choices range from high quality, durable fabric to elegant and supple semi-aniline leather in a number of different colours. For the inlays, black gloss is specified as standard, except for F SPORT and Luxury models. The former features contemporary aluminium, whilst the latter offers a choice of fine wood finishes – ebony, walnut or bamboo, with the option to specify a matching leather and wood trimmed steering wheel.

Dynamic control

DYNAMIC CONTROL

We have developed a technology called Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) which intelligently combines the powertrain and electronic dynamic control systems. Put simply: it provides assured control to help you negotiate the most demanding situations safely and with confidence.

VDIM networks the various braking, traction, stability and suspension systems applying them together, rather than independently, to ensure optimum dynamic performance. If you are accelerating on a slippery surface or braking on a surface with unequal grip, for example, its sensors anticipate an imbalance and optimise traction and steering control to apply corrective measures and maintain a balanced trajectory. This results in a level of driving performance that simply is not possible if each system is operated independently and is an important contribution to the car’s safety.

Four drive modes

FOUR DRIVE MODES

The GS offers up to four different modes of drive, controlled by Drive Mode Select on the central console. These distinct driving experiences can be chosen according to traffic and road conditions or the driver’s mood: from serene and relaxed to dynamic and sporty, from maximum efficiency to maximum excitement. The colours on the instrument panel change from calming blue to an active red, depending on the mode chosen.

In Eco mode, powertrain adjustments are made to reduce emissions and conserve fuel, while still ensuring relaxed driving. The electronic climate control and heated seats are also intelligently controlled to optimise fuel efficiency. Normal mode provides everyday driving comfort – striking an ideal balance between economy and ride comfort. Sport S mode immediately re-tunes throttle responsiveness for rapid acceleration.

Advanced safety

ADVANCED SAFETY

First seen on the Lexus LS flagship sedan, our award-winning Advanced Pre-Crash Safety with Driver Monitoring and Lane Keeping Assist is now available as an option pack on the GS. Pioneered by Lexus, Advanced Pre-Crash uses millimetre-wave radar and an on-board computer to calculate collision risk ahead. If the risk is high, the driver is alerted by audible/visual warnings and brake pressure is increased. Where a collision is unavoidable, the brakes may be applied automatically and the front seatbelts tightened. The same radar technology is used by Adaptive Cruise Control to maintain a pre-selected distance behind the car ahead.

Should you tire or get distracted while driving, the Driver Monitoring System will detect if your eyes are shut or are averted from the road ahead. Warnings are then activated as appropriate. Additionally, Lane Keeping Assist helps prevent the driver from inadvertently drifting out of lane, by way of an audio warning and the automatic application of a brief corrective steering force.

Finally, to help you focus on driving, Head-Up Display projects key vehicle data onto the windscreen, while Blind Spot Monitor uses radar to detect – and warn of - unnoticed overtaking vehicles. Rear Cross Traffic Alert can also alert you to vehicles approaching the difficult-to-see area behind the GS.

You can find out more from your nearest dealer.

Dashboard and console

DASHBOARD AND CONSOLE

The impressively wide sweep of the dashboard houses the crystal clear optitron instrumentation, a beautifully designed precision LED analogue clock and the largest multimedia display currently offered by Lexus. At 12.3-inches wide, this commanding full-colour split-screen can easily accommodate two types of information – navigation and audio, for example – and is superb for watching DVDs on the larger high-resolution screen. A Head-Up Display that projects key information, such as speed, onto the bottom of the windscreen completes the line up of innovations designed to reduce eye-movement and keep you focussed on the road ahead.

From the beautiful leather and bamboo trimmed steering wheel (a world first) to the immaculate upholstery stitching, pure craftsmanship is evident throughout. Remote Touch enables intuitive operation of many vehicle systems on the standard 8-inch or optional 12.3-inch display. Steering wheel switches and voice command also let the driver control equipment, such as audio or phone, without removing either hand from the wheel. In summary, a beautiful and intuitive mix of the very latest technology with exquisitely detailed design.

Why not try the GS 250 out for yourself and book a test drive.

System control

SYSTEM CONTROL

Remote Touch makes the operation of many of the advanced features in your Lexus really simple, convenient and intuitive. Naturally positioned between the front seats, it’s as easy to use as a computer mouse and allows control of the systems on the multi-display screen without distracting the driver from the road. Also, as more innovation and technology is added to each Lexus, the award-winning Remote Touch makes it simpler to get the most out of each one.

Designed using haptic technology, the Remote Touch ‘mouse’ uses subtle movement to give tactile feedback to the user, meaning the driver doesn’t have to take their eyes off the road to look at the controls. For example, when the pointer/cursor is close to an on-screen selection option, such as for Lexus Premium Navigation, electronic climate control or the sound system, you can feel the controller being gently drawn towards it.
