Yesterday, Lexus Malaysia officially introduced the all new Lexus GS, a mid-sized luxury sedan designed to provide class-leading luxury and performance from Japan. The fourth-generation Lexus GS marks a huge step over its predecessor in terms of design, technological capabilities and most importantly comfort and drivability for both driver and passenger. This car was premiere in Los Angeles, USA back in November 2011.
En. Ismet Suki, President of UMW Toyota Motor said, “The new Lexus GS has successfully set new standards for a mid-level luxury car. Positive reviews from local and international media have proven that the Lexus GS lives up to and even exceeds all expectations, and we are certain that you will feel this for yourself when you drive this car.”
“The Lexus GS is a representation of the Lexus’ continuous “Pursuit of Perfection” which will certainly raise the benchmark in terms of refinement in quality, detailing and styling in the luxury market. Although subtle, the changes are meaningful and obvious, taking the Lexus GS experience to the next level”, he added.
The new Lexus GS marks the second model that boasts the Japanese luxury brand new design philosophy called the L-finesse. The edgier and bolder design is topped off with the new spindle grille at the front which will soon be featured on all other Lexus models symbolizing the identity of establishment and the future of Lexus.
The redesigned interior features the world’s first largest Electro Multi Vision screen in the automotive business. The 12.3-inch screen display is large enough to support simultaneous viewing of a map and audio, climate control or other vehicle information screens that the driver chooses.
For the Luxury and F-sport variants, there is a choice of audio systems offering incomparable power and clarity. The optional Mark Levinson audio system features 17 speakers to offer sound quality equivalent to a live concert hall performance.
While the interior serenades the passengers in class-leading luxury, a choice of two different powerful engines ensure that the driver is never left wanting. The GS250 is powered by a 2.5-litre V6 engine that produces 207hp and 253Nm of torque, while the top of the range GS350 comes with a 3.5-litre V6 engine that provides an impressive 306hp and 378Nm of torque.
The new Lexus GS will be available in Malaysia in five different variants starting from the GS250 which is price at RM366,200 and goes up to RM400,600 for the Luxury and F-Sport variant. The GS350 starts from RM456,800 up till RM464,800 for the Luxury and F-Sport models as well.
