Whats 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 isnt as suave as Infinitis newest M and its not as stoic as Germanys 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.
