The GS 450h perfectly embodies Lexus’ new design approach, with drama the key word outside and in. An eye-catching face with angled headlamps and a muscular front apron meets the iconic pinched grille.
Driving the Lexus GS 450h is a thrilling experience. Powered by a 3.5-litre V6 electro-hybrid engine supported by two electric motors, the car produces a combined 335bhp, and roars to 62mph in just 5.9 seconds. Given this figure, and its hypothetical maximum speed of 155mph, drivers will be pleasantly surprised to find out that the GS 450h boasts combined fuel economy of 46.3mpg and carbon output of 141g/km. The frugality of the engine is likely to be of particular interest to businesses, due to the resultant Benefit-in-Kind tax rate of 20%.
As well as impressive pace and economy, the vehicle provides a stable platform with a sophisticated CVT automatic transmission and four-wheel drive. A composed ride and light, reactive steering makes the healthy-sized GS 450h a very easy car to control; parking is also made much easier by the addition of Park Assist cameras.
Move inside and you will discover the care put into everything from the driver’s seat to the 17 Daniel Levinson speakers. You can control this surround sound system and more from a 12.3-inch full-colour LED console – the world’s widest in-car multimedia display.
