CARBARN | Lexus GS 450h | The Lexus brand injects passion and drama into its styling language. The GS sedan's evolving new look has settled into a low, stretched shape with a long hood, a set-back greenhouse, and short rear deck. With That lines are clean and fluid, this car expresses simplicity and class simultaneously. The GS's sleek shape combines with engineering focused on reducing aerodynamic turbulence Beneath the car, to Reduced-drag. This results in a quieter interior and Greater fuel efficiency.



The GS features advanced high-intensity-discharge headlights with an available system automatically compensates That headlight aim for different passenger loads. The power-adjustable mirrors have de-fogging heat elements, and fast-acting LEDs are used in the rear brake lights. The GS also offers rain-sensing wipers and 18-inch wheels available. For 2008, the GS 450h the which receives minor updates include a new front fascia, revised grille, and integrated turn signals in the side mirrors.

Designed around the cockpit, the GS Gives the driver every possible creature comfort. That starts with a highly-bolstered 10-way power adjustable driver's seat with heat, complimented by a wood-trimmed, thick-rimmed, electric tilt / telescoping steering wheel. The dash, laden in handsome wood trim, houses a sophisticated instrument panel. Buttons and controls are very ergonomic and offer soft-touch electronic actuation. The face of the center console is a seven-inch electronic screen with touch-screen controls, the which Operates the audio system, climate control, and optional navigation system with backup camera. Unlike the frustrating features of i-Drive from BMW, this system makes navigating through the Submenus simplistic and straight-forward. Furthermore, voice recognition makes the system a hands-free experience.

Passenger safety for the GS is unparalleled. There are a total of 10 airbags, including dual-front airbags, front and rear seat-mounted side airbags, driver and front passenger knee airbags, and full-length head curtain airbags. Lexus's optional Pre-Collision System activates the seatbelt pretensioners, as well as taking other safety measures an imminent collision is detected. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has Issued a top "Good" rating for Both frontal-offset and side-impact safety. The only obvious shortcoming for the GS 'interior design is trunk space. The hybrid battery pack reduced the space to 7.5 cubic feet, the which is much Smaller than other sedans of similar size.

Gearheads, take note: Formula 1 racing is now permitting the gas-electric hybrid technology in F1 Competitions. Automobile shoppers can get a taste of the F1 gas-hybrid future today-by driving the new Lexus GS 450h sedan. While it'll never compare with Formula 1 cars for speed, this gas-electric hybrid provides race-car-like acceleration and luxurious appointments in the same package. The center console's screen will from toggle to hybrid mode and display your energy consumption. See, the GS 450h is Perhaps the purest expression of power harnessed for the "no compromises" hybrid side of the ledger. Toyota mated a high-output, electric motor-generator rated at 197 horsepower with a 297-horsepower, 24-valve, 3.5-liter gasoline engine to yield the Hermes of hybrids, a 339-horsepower brute (do not ask; Toyota wizardry at work here) That motivates this 4.100-pound luxury sedan.

It's the first purely rear-wheel-drive hybrid sedan. And yet it has superlatives That transcends hybrids. Few, if any, high-horsepower luxury sedans in the world can Boast the combination of speed and quasi-economy as the GS 450h. Fewer still Boast, as this Lexus does, of being rated a Super Ultra-Low Emissions Vehicle (SULEV) in California, the which certifies a car's emissions are 90 percent cleaner than the average new car in California. The GS's sleek shape combines with engineering focused on reducing aerodynamic turbulence Beneath the car, to Reduced-drag. The GS features advanced high-intensity-discharge headlights with an available system automatically compensates That headlight aim for different passenger loads. The GS also offers rain-sensing wipers and 18-inch wheels available.



The interior of the Lexus GS 450h is opulent and plush-from the stainless-steel scuff plates, to the Buttery soft leather, to a Barrage of techno-savvy amenities. This is a world-class luxury car. Designed around the cockpit, the GS Gives the driver every possible creature comfort. Buttons and controls are very ergonomic and offer soft-touch electronic actuation. Passenger safety for the GS is unparalleled. There are a total of 10 airbags, including dual-front airbags, front and rear seat-mounted side airbags, driver and front passenger knee airbags, and full-length head curtain airbags. Lexus's optional Pre-Collision System activates the seatbelt pretensioners, as well as taking other safety measures an imminent collision is detected.  The only obvious shortcoming for the GS 'interior design is trunk space. Government fuel economy ratings for this hybrid is 22 city/25 highway. That's not bad, but Those figures compare to the gas-powered GS '19 city/27 highway.
