Lexus unveils new GS

Lexus GS

Lexus has unveiled its new GS, which will be available in the UK next year. Lexus has confirmed that a full hybrid model, the GS 450h, will be sold in the UK along with an F-Sport version.

The engineering team set out to ensure the car offered a more engaging driving experience. The new model has a ‘wider stance and stiffer structure, a transmission with quicker changes and distinctive engine sound and exhaust note’, along with a new suspension system ‘designed to guide the GS through corners with precision’.

New Whiplash Injury Lessening front seats mean that, in a crash, occupants would be in the optimum position for safety at the moment of impact.

A pre-collision system will be available and uses the dynamic radar cruise control system to provide early warning of upcoming objects that might result in a collision. The system even monitors the driver’s eyes and if they’re not looking forward when a collision appears imminent, it will give off a warning sound. If the driver does not react the system will initiate braking up to two seconds prior to impact, helping to lessen the severity of the collision.

Other safety systems include a night vision System, Head-Up Display, Blind Spot Monitor, Lane Keep Assist and Lane Departure Warning.
