CAR Magazine Reviews the 2014 Lexus GS 300h

Lexus GS CAR Magazine

CAR Magazine has reviewed the Lexus GS 300h, and found it to be “a lot of car for the money”:

…its sharp nose with LEDs and North American market-looking rear lights are connected by flat, slabby sides – the complete opposite of the overdesigned Mercedes flanks. It’s not a work of art, but it’s understated and polished – details such as the finish on the wheels give it a touch of class.

How does it drive? One word comes to mind; majestic. The GS is smooth as silk, with brilliant refinement and manners.

The entry-level automatic [BMW] 5-series has worse C02 (119g/km) but nudges ahead with 62.8mpg, although it doesn’t have the power of the Lexus. That makes the GS300h a tempting company car that’s low on running costs, high on reliability and brilliant on motorways. It’s a genuine alternative to the BMW, if not as sharp to drive.
