Lexus GS 300h Saloon (2013 - )

It may not be as engaging to drive as some of its competitors, but the Lexus GS is attractively priced, beautifully built, exceptionally refined and particularly well-equipped. What’s more, because it is powered by a petrol-hybrid powertrain, which produces relatively low CO2 emissions, it’s also a very attractive proposition for company car drivers.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

It’s impossible not to be impressed by the overall fit, finish and attention to detail inside the GS. Decked out with appropriate quantities of leather, with slick switchgear, satin-finished buttons set against piano black inserts that subtly reflect the subdued LED ambient lighting, it actually feels more like being inside a top-end luxury car than mere middle-management conveyance. The enormous 12.3-inch multimedia display can show two sets of information side-by-side, and it’s at its best displaying the sat-nav mapping in one half and the trip computer in the other. This is controlled by a mouse-like device that you can grasp, move, and click; allowing you to skip through the functions displayed on the screen while doing your best to keep at least one eye on the road ahead. It may be relatively old-school and not as intuitive as BMW’s i-Drive system, but it’s infinitely better than the infernal track-pad fitted to more recent Lexus models. Even if you spend hours piling on the miles, you’ll remain unflustered thanks to comfortable, supportive seats and a steering wheel and pedal box that are perfectly aligned to provide an excellent driving position.
