EDITOR WES RAYNAL: I liked the car than I thought I would, or I say at least better than I liking the Lexus GS models. The V6 is the ride handling mix feels and the interior is pleasant. Thank for the heated steering wheel, and awesome heater. I needed on a recent morning.

To make thing dance a little, you to be in S or S+ mode, no question. Punch up of those and the steering feels and weightier (though still numb), throttle response and the transmission feels like it on to gears just that a longer. I found myself than once thinking is a Lexus. Where’s the floaty It’s quick off the line and the car grippy in corners with the drive. The chassis feels stiff, which also

It’s a way more comfortable in normal and eco modes. Relaxed and It feels very Lexus. Lexus buyers will the latest GS. I don’t know if it swipe any Audi A6. BMW 5-series or E-class customers, though. And now you got to the new Cadillac CTS into that mix as

Of course, the cabin is well and adds a lot to the sense of quiet mentioned above. You are cut off almost from road noises, the are high quality and everything as it should. However, I’m not sold on the mouse controller. To me it distracting compared to a touchscreen or say, Audi’s MMI, but and the radio and such can still be with traditional knobs/switches.

As I said, I don’t know the GS keeps German (or GM’s) up at night. But Lexus buyers love it, and I would be willing to bet it be stone reliable and the Lexus takes better care of you than any German or GM dealer. something to be said for that.

The Lexus GS 350 comes in at a base of $50,860 with our tester off at $62,700.

ASSOCIATE EDITOR JAKE OK, first of all, there’s a ton of on this Lexus GS 350, not a but a ton just the same. Although, $6,500 luxury package includes a lot of stuff. Like all vehicles, this GS is well with a big central screen, everything, heated steering and seats, basically everything want in a medium-sized luxury Unfortunately, a lot of the dash, at least the underneath the screen, looks and maybe a little cheaper it should. I will, however, to stand by the mouse touch which gets easier every passing use. The also was quiet, shielded both road and wind and cradled me wonderfully in its stock

Power was good from the V6, but with all-wheel drive, it a little of the enthusiast’s mojo Obviously it was great in the snow and I was surprised by the growl as well. you hit the upper rev ranges, 4,000 rpm and the motor has a mean wail to it. were acceptable from the the paddles worked, but not brilliantly like dual-clutch setups.

The is a little boring, which is to say. Just a few years ago was “the most aggressive of the spindle grille yet.” Now it second or third fiddle to the IS and

I feel this competes with Mercedes-Benz more BMW or Audi, both of the latter seem to have a sportier than this. You can’t get manual transmissions in Mercs, like this.

It was a good cruiser for the weekend, and I was it had the ski pass-through, because I picked up 8-foot quarter round. than that I’d something like the 3- or 5-series, if is the key, or an Audi A6, if all-wheel is your thing.
