The new GS features a more spacious interior, offering rear passengers increased head and leg room, plus a host of new technology including the largest multimedia screen on the market - measuring over 12-inches.

The Drive Mode Select System allows drivers to change vehicle behavior in order to suit a range of different driving styles or road conditions. Modes include, Eco, Normal and Sport S with a further Sport S+ mode available on models equipped with Adaptive Variable Suspension.

The new GS range also comes with a wide range of safety equipment including a Pre-Crash Safety system, Lane Keep Assist, Blind Spot Monitor and Lexus Night View, all designed to reduce the risk of an accident.
