What’s it look like?
The current GS continues the theme introduced more than a decade ago with Lexus’ subtle-but-shapely original GS 300. A bulbous greenhouse and tall tail give it a more distinctly recognizable design language than can be seen in any other Lexus product; this GS is clearly linked to its predecessors, while other Lexus models seem to reinvent themselves with each redesign.
Quad headlamps first debuted on the second-generation GS, but they have been squared off for round three. Intricately detailed, they are wrapped in chromed plastic and blend nicely into the signature Lexus grille.
The swept-back five-spoke alloy wheels, finished in a light graphite shade, were especially rich.
No, the GS isn’t as suave as Infiniti’s newest M and it’s not as stoic as Germany’s BMW and Mercedes offerings, but it has a light-on-its-feet appearance that still manages to blend uptown sophistication with simple style. We wish all Lexus sedans were this stylistically balanced.
