The Telegraph Reviews the Lexus GS 300h

Lexus GS 300h Review by The Telegraph

Andrew English of The Telegraph has reviewed the Lexus GS 300h, and believes the 2.5L hybrid sedan compares favorably with its competition:

This latest GS might not be as sporty or exciting as Lexus suggests, but it’s not bad and is at least on a par with its occasionally quite raucous 2.0-litre diesel German rivals. The ride quality is really good – soft, but never floating, with a Sport + setting firming the damping and (pointlessly and weirdly) the on-centre steering weight. The more tautly suspended F-Sport model might be a little too much for Lexus’s traditional customers, but it’s quite fun.

A GS you want to drive? Actually yes, and well priced, too. Fuel economy just got a bit more entertaining.

    I will always love the GS

    • Raptor

      I will too my friend. Drove my 06 430 tonight and still love it…

      • Lexus Cohen

        When I drive my girl’s 14 IS I appreciate my GS even more.

  • Raptor

    Holy carp what? The slowest GS ever made and almost gets the gas millage of a Prius? Oh and Yeah and a new digital display for the dash? Pretty cool except for the power.

    I hope they change the numbering
    Still a lot of people will say 300 means 3liters

    Why they can simply naming it GS250h because it is really 2.5 liter with electric motor
    And same goes with the GS450h it should be named GS350h

    This naming will at least increase the sales by 10% , because the non knowledgeable people will then compare Lexus engines with the suitable comparison from the German offers, and will appear then that Lexus appear not under powered

      Take the system-power, not the Otto-Enginge only!

        Sir I know, but if this is the case with all Lexus, why Lexus will name the 2.0 litre turbo engine 200t!!!!!!

        Why then they will not naming it with the system Power also
        My view this is a pure mistake in advertising
        Everyone not know Lexus well will automatically underpowered there engines
        But if they choose to go as the same route as the turbo
        So GS250h, GS350h, GS200t
        This will be the right good direction

    GS looks like old IS250/IS350/IS220 from side. Nice ;)

    AND: What about amber turning-light-glass at rear? Totally outfashioned!

    I hope aftermarket and tuners will offer some alternatives to that.

    “little too much for Lexus’s traditional”

    This kills me with laughter because most of the Lexus drivers I kno are about performance.
