In EV mode, the GS is silent, consumes no fuel and emits zero CO2.
In ECO mode, engine output and gear selection is smartly adjusted to improve fuel efficiency.
For the everyday. The ultimate refined driving mode.
SPORT S mode increases throttle response, and creates a quicker and smoother transition shift.
SPORT S+ Mode adjusts the suspension and electric power steering, resulting in stronger acceleration and sharper handling.
For the first time, we've been able to combine the power and efficiency of a V6 Atkinson cycle engine with our Hybrid technology. The result is a 30% reduction in fuel consumption, whilst converting combustion energy to engine power more effectively.
The GS 450h intelligently recycles kinetic energy that is normally lost, and reuses it when it's needed later on.
340 Horsepower. 0-60 in 5 seconds. The 3.5ltr V6 engine combined with a high-output permanent-magnet electric motor delivers more power than a Mercedes or BMW.
First, we apply six separate layers of paint. Then we wet-sand the entire car by hand before applying the final coat. It's a complicated process but the result is an unparalleled and vibrant finish.
We've worked tirelessly to create a topcoat of paint with more density and elasticity. This causes it to re-bond when small scratches occur. Not only is our paint now more resistant to everyday surface scratches, it can also heal them too.
The RGB paint inspection is a time-consuming process, but it means we can be absolutely certain every GS looks perfect. Every time.
The front-seats in the new GS are nothing short of an ergonomic masterpiece. They offer 18 different types of customization, including shoulder support, butterfly headrests and variable seat-cushion length.
To ensure every individual piece of wood inside a GS has the same matching grain pattern, we source and use the wood from one single tree.
The Lexus GS Night View displays an image of the road up to 200 meters ahead, helping you see obstacles much sooner.
The Blind Spot Monitor uses radar devices mounted on the corners of the rear bumper to detect overtaking vehicles in adjacent lanes.
Lane-Keep Assist uses an on-board camera to cleverly detect road lane markings, and help keep the driver from drifting off-course.
The GS pre-crash system not only monitors the road ahead for oncoming vehicles, it also detects when your eyes are closed for too long and alerts you.
We tested steering and agility on some of the most demanding roads possible. Including the German Autobahn. It helped us to develop the new Lexus Dynamic Handling system, which enables the GS to handle any corner effortlessly.
The GS has been crafted to give an outstandingly stable drive. Even on the tightest corners. A lighter front and rear suspension system, made from aluminium, reduces shock and improves steering.
Using touch alone, our master craftsman can recognise even the smallest imperfection on an engine or body part and have it corrected before it hits the assembly line. A skill that can take up to 20 years to master.
Every person, and every part that goes inside our factory, passes through a wind shower to remove any unwanted particles. We've even installed walls with water running down them to capture stray particles in the atmosphere.
The new GS climate control system not only detects the temperature of the passenger cabin, but also the number of passengers inside the car. As a result, it only air conditions seats that are occupied, saving almost 3% in fuel.
We've introduced Nanoe technology into the GS air-flow system that moisturizes your skin as you drive. So you can arrive at every destination feeling more refreshed.
The new Mark Levinson audio system inside the GS produces an impressive 835 watts. Twice as many watts per channel compared to the previous generation's system.
Our engineers spent over 2000 hours meticulously positioning all 17 speakers inside the GS to create a 360degree, concert-hall experience.
Our lightweight speakers produce less heat. As a result, not only is the sound quality cleaner, fuel consumption is reduced by up to 3%.
The first layer of paint we apply contains large aluminium flakes. These flakes sparkle even under the harshest sunlight.
For the next layer, we use paint with smaller aluminium flakes. So now the GS looks amazing under shade and cloudy skies too.
The multimedia navigation screen in the new GS is over a foot wide. That's the biggest you'll find inside any car in the world.
The GS multimedia system has more high-definition graphics than the average TV, and allows the driver to simultaneously view navigation and adjust controls with ease.
We've even created a snow mode that slows accelerator-pedal response in the GS to help reduce the possibility of wheel spin.
