The GS used to be the only hybrid game in town, but times have changed and
nearly everyone has joined the party. BMW has their turbocharged ActiveHybrid 5, Mercedes just
launched the E400 Hybrid, Infiniti has re-badged their M Hybrid the Q70
Hybrid, Acura is finally selling the all-wheel-drive RLX Hybrid and Audi
has announced the A6 hybrid will come to America "soon." This means that
the S80 T6 and Genesis are no longer on my list because we have
head-to-head competition now.
Lexus used to be known for restrained styling but the current generation GS
marked a change for the Japanese luxury brand. In addition to taking on
more aggressive front end styling, the GS was the first Lexus to wear the
new "spindle" grille. The schnozz that seemed so controversial three years
ago seems downright demure today, especially since this form has been
adapted to the enormous (and some say questionable) LX 470. Perhaps because
the GS was the first to wear the corporate grille, the styling seems
slightly awkward from the front 3/4 shot (seen at the top) but looks better
in person. Unlike the IS, which gets some sheetmetal swooshes on the side,
the GS's profile and rump are luxury car restrained. Overall I think the
Infiniti Q70 hybrid, despite being a little long in the tooth, still wins
the beauty contest. The Lexus and BMW are a bit too sedate for my tastes,
and the RLX and A6 suffer from decidedly front-wheel-drive proportions when
compared to the rest and the Mercedes lands smack in the middle.
While the GS 350 recently got an update in the form of a new Aisin 8-speed
automatic, the GS 450h continues with just a minor software update. This
means under the hood you will find the same direct-injection 3.5L
Atkinson-cycle V6 engine and RWD hybrid transmission that launched in 2011.
Combined with a 1.9 kWh NiMH battery pack in the trunk the system is good
for 338 combined horsepower, 286 of which
come from the gasoline engine. This is essentially the same engine found in
the Highlander and RX hybrids, but the transmission is more similar to what
Lexus uses in the LS 600hL. The unit combines the two motor/generator units
with a 2-speed planetary gearset to improve efficiency at high speeds (as
in on the Autobahn) but without the AWD system standard in the LS 600hL.
The 2014 software update improves "sportiness" in sport mode and now
imitates an 8-speed automatic instead of a 6-speed. While 338 horsepower compares well
with the 6-cylinder competition, the GS 450h has the unenviable task of
trying to be both the most efficient GS and the performance version as
well. For reasons nobody knows, the more efficient GS 300h which uses a
2.5L four-cylinder engine is not sold in America.
By design, the Lexus hybrid system is very different from the competition.
The two motor/generator units and the electrical circuitry combine with a
single planetary gearsest to "act" as a continuously variable transmission.
This setup allows the drivetrain to act as a serial hybrid (kind of),
parallel hybrid, electric generator, or a pure EV at low speeds. In
contrast Mercedes, BMW and Infiniti combine a traditional transmission with
a single electric motor that replaces the torque converter. Transitions
between electric and gasoline drive modes in these systems aren't as smooth
as the Lexus system because of the clutch packs involved in reconnecting
the engine. Meanwhile Acura combines a dual-clutch robotic manual
transmission with a twin-motor pack in the rear for the only AWD hybrid
luxury sedan in this category.
Of course the primary reason for buying a hybrid is to save on gas. Right?
Maybe. With a 29 MPG City, 34 MPG Highway and 31 MPG combined rating
there's no doubt that the GS 450h is a fuel sipping 338 horsepower luxury sedan.
However at more than $10,000 more expensive than a similarly equipped GS
350 it would take you more than 20 years to "save money." We did average an
excellent 31.5 MPG over 800 miles with the GS hybrid, a notable improvement
over the Infiniti hybrid and the short time I spent in the RLX hybrid.
Although we haven't extensively tested the BMW and Mercedes hybrids yet,
brief spins in both indicate they will slot in under the GS. There's one
more problem for the GS: Mercedes' new E250 diesel. No, it's not a speed
daemon, but at 34 mpg combined it not only makes up for the higher cost of
diesel with the higher fuel economy, it starts around $9,000 less than a GS
450h as well.

2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport vs 2013 Lexus GS350 F Sport! - Head 2 Head Ep. 45
The 2013 Lexus GS F Sport has taken down the likes of the BMW 535i, Audi A6
and Infiniti M37 in previous comparisons, and is our reigning king of the
luxury performance sedan segment. The new 2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport brings
two turbos, over 100 more horsepower, and a history of
excellent track-day capability to the table, but weighs over 100 lbs. more
than the Lexus. Can the light, balanced, and nimble Lexus hold its own
against the American powerhouse Cadillac CTS V Sport? On this episode of
Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman takes both cars to the testing grounds, canyon
roads, and finally the racetrack to find out.

2014 LEXUS GS 350 - INTERIOR -EXTERIOR- Design
The mid-size Lexus GS was refreshed and reinvigorated in the 2013 model
year, and it returns as the Lexus GS 350 and GS 450h hybrid again for 2014,
ready to take on the likes of the Mercedes-Benz E Class, BMW 5-Series, Audi
A6, and Cadillac CTS yet again.
The GS has usually been an also-ran in that category, but it's made
substantial progress in handling and styling. The new face of Lexus has
been applied to its front end, and the GS now has a boomeranged frame for
the grille that asserts a visual identity in a way no Lexus ever has. It
pairs well with the Nakamichi-minimalist interior fitted inside,
upholstered with lots of leather and LED lighting--a cool workplace that
conversely feels very warm and inviting.
The GS 350 runs with a 3.5-liter V-6 that's now rated at 306 horsepower. Rear-drive
versions now have an eight-speed automatic, while all-wheel-drive models
carry over the six-speed automatic that's been around since the last
generation, though with the addition of shift paddles and eco and sport
modes. We expect better 0-60 mph times than the previously estimated 5.7
seconds, maybe by a tenth or two. Lexus even pipes in some of the
soundtrack directly into the cabin, in an about-face of more than 20 years'
worth of branding and positioning centered around quietness.
Handling is a focus now, too, and even the base GS sedans seem to plant
themselves more firmly. The F Sport package dials in electric steering as
good as any German-brand luxosedan, with the same near-zero tolerance for
potholes in ride quality. Toss in optional active steering, and the GS'
transitions are sharper, cleaner than any of the mid-size German sedans or
the Cadillac CTS; it's a breathtaking difference in philosophy and in
driving feel. Electronics are equalizing the differences here quickly,
neutralizing some of the hallmarks of the great German sedans and erasing
some of the deficits of the former also-rans from Japan.
The GS 450h hybrid is a notably different beast. It blends V-6 and electric
power to the rear wheels for improvements to the GS' EPA-rated fuel economy
numbers, with some mild changes applied to its exterior and cabin to
distinguish it from gas-powered models. But while the last-generation GS
hybrid put its foot down for performance while sacrificing some gas
mileage, Lexus is turning the equation around for the newest edition. The
EPA of 29/34 mpg and 31 mpg combined compares to the GS 350's 19/28 mpg;
today's hybrid thus puts more distance between itself than did the previous
hybrid, an improvement of about 35 percent, according to Lexus. While fuel
economy has improved, Lexus also says the 338-hp GS 450h hybrid is quicker:
it will accelerate from 0-60 mph in about 5.6 seconds, and will reach a top
speed of about 134 mph.
There's a wide gap in ride and handling, too. Lexus has opted to make its
semi-active suspension standard on the hybrid, along with electric power
steering and a drive-mode selector that programs the electronic
continuously variable transmission (ECVT) to behave in eco, sport,
sport-plus, and EV modes, as well as in normal mode. It now has eight
pre-programmed steps, instead of six. The different driving styles adapt
well enough to the GS 450h's demeanor, though it's still saddled with the
lower end of the GS' performance abilities--the smaller sizes of tires,
lower rolling resistance for better fuel economy, and a lighter touch to
its steering all remove the feedback that's been carefully dialed into the
sporty versions of the gas-powered GS 350. The brakes are the usual hybrid
sore point, with lots of regenerative stiffness and little real braking
sensation. This is the GS to drive if you're strictly concerned with a
In comfort and spaciousness, the Lexus GS hasn't expanded its universe
much--and that's fine, since it's hard to go anywhere from standard 10-way
power seats, other than optional 18-way power front seats with heating and
ventilation and semi-aniline leather in the loveliest of shades. The GS'
rear seat remains tight at the knees in spite of some mild reshaping, and
the trunk is a little shallow. Lexus' mix of wood and leather on luxury
versions is sweetly rendered, and the high-tech F Sport trim looks fine,
even if we're not sure what it's meant to simulate. Fewer trim pieces and
types would heighten the performance-studio impression even more, we think.
The GS 450h gets the usual blue hybrid badges, a choice of unvarnished
bamboo, and hybrid-specific information screens.
2013 Lexus GS350 vs Jaguar XF Mashup Review: And the best sport luxury sedan is...?
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Lexus GS350 is all new and completely
redesigned from the ground up. Gone is the stodgy car of old replaced by a
much more passionate and sporty Lexus. The 2012 Jaguar XF has gotten a
minor facelift but the heart of the car remains the same with a 385 HP V8
under the hood. Both of these cars drive for that perfect balance of sport
performance and opulent luxury so which one is better? Check out another
unique TFLcar mashup review as we compare the two luxury sedans to see
which one deserves to be called the best sport luxury sedan.
