The stylish, sturdy and spacious Lexus GS 450h comes with plenty of desirable technology and boasts a luxurious cabin. This mid-size hybrid saloon handles superbly too and is available in F Sport and Premier trim levels.
The muscularly elegant four-door GS 450h sports a pronounced spindle radiator grille, which is bisected by a body-coloured bumper. The vehicle rides on 19-inch alloy wheels (F Sport grades) and features power-adjustable, auto-folding, auto-dimming and heated door mirrors and rain-sensing windscreen wipers. LED lighting includes dusk-sensing headlights with a courtesy-delay facility, daytime running lights, front fog lamps, and rear combination lights.
Inside this vehicle’s five-person cabin, front-row occupants are treated to heated and ventilated seats that offer ten-way adjustability and two-way lumbar support. The driver can also enjoy the benefits provided by a multi-adjustable steering wheel, which comes with paddle shift controls. Other standard features include an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, automatic two-zone air-conditioning (three-zone with Premier trims), a rear windscreen-mounted electric sunshade and LED ambient lighting. The car also makes room for a substantial 480-litre boot compartment.
The GS 450h features a 3.5-litre V6 engine beneath its bonnet. Paired with continuously variable transmission, this delivers 345bhp, 352NM of torque, 0-60mph in a little over six seconds and a top speed of 145mph. Despite its pace and power, the vehicle also manages to return up to 45.6mpg and a 156g/km CO2 emissions figure. There are five selectable drive modes too: EV, Normal, Eco, Sport and Sport+.
For your listening pleasure, a 12-speaker audio system (17 with Premier grades) is featured, including DAB radio and a CD/DVD player. Bluetooth, USB and AUX connectivity, a 12.3-inch screen (which can be operated via remote touch interface) and steering wheel-mounted multimedia controls are standard inclusions too.
The model’s raft of driving aids includes Lane-keep Assist, Pre-crash Safety System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Traffic Signal Recognition, Anti-lock Braking System and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System. Among the vehicle’s range of passive safety elements are ten airbags, seatbelt pre-tensioners and load-limiters and ISOFIX child-seat preparation.
