2016 Lexus GS 350 Overview
The four-cylinder engine is offered with rear-wheel drive only, so buyers in need of all-wheel drive will have to turn their attention to the traditional GS 350. It’s offered in rear- or all-wheel-drive configurations with a 311-hp V6. Either way, though, this is a sedan that strikes a well-considered balance between comfort and performance, and is equally well-suited to daily commute duty or long road trips. Nor is the GS afraid of tight turns — it’s actually one of the better cars in this class, and its performance cred can be dialed up a tick on all models by opting for the F Sport package. Top it off with a cabin that packs class, style and a long list of technology and the GS is a compelling alternative to the familiar German models.
Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options
Standard equipment includes 18-inch wheels (17-inch wheels on GS 200t), LED headlights, heated auto-dimming side mirrors, a sunroof, keyless entry and ignition, driver-selectable drive modes, leather upholstery in GS 350 models (synthetic leather in GS 200t), eight-way power front seats (with two-way power lumbar), driver seat memory functions, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, matte wood trim and ambient lighting.
2016 Lexus GS 350 Driving Impression/Review
The 2016 GS offers a range of power levels to suit the pocketbooks and sensibilities of more buyers than ever. We’ve been impressed with the GS 200t’s turbocharged four-cylinder’s refined zest as found in the NX 200t crossover. As for the GS 350, its normally aspiratedV6 has been with us for a decade now, but we still find it strong and satisfying, though it does lack the eager thump in the back that you get with torque-rich turbocharged alternatives. It delivers the goods if you’re willing to rev it high.
