VEHICLE FEATURES

GET TO KNOW THE GS 450h BETTER

Driving the GS 450h - The Highlights

THE HIGHLIGHTS

The GS is a totally new kind of Lexus saloon – one that was developed in the world’s most advanced driving simulator, and then tested over 1.6 million kilometres. We started by increasing the chassis rigidity, fitting new dampers and engineering a new rear multi-link suspension. We then created a sophisticated aerodynamic concept that moves airflow closer to the vehicle body, to boost dynamic performance and steering precision. Enhancing the car’s class-leading refinement even further, smooth underbody covers and fins on the rear lights increase stability and reduce wind noise.

Inside the GS 450h - The Highlights

THE HIGHLIGHTS

You’ll sense the amazing quality of the new GS when you first touch the beautifully stitched leather steering wheel or precision-machined aluminium audio controls. The car’s gleaming paintwork is wet sanded by hand (a time-consuming process normally reserved for coach-built cars) and checked by eye as well as digitally to ensure a perfect finish. Manufactured at the plant that built our iconic Lexus LFA supercar, GS production is overseen by Lexus ‘Takumi’ personnel. These highly trained master craftspeople rigorously check that every car meets our peerless quality standards.

Safety in the GS 450h - The Highlights

SAFETY IN THE GS 450h - THE HIGHLIGHTS

Lexus has always spearheaded the development of safety and driver support technologies, and tests all new models in the world’s largest driving simulator. Benefitting from our lead in accident prevention research, the new GS is now available with the breakthrough Lexus Safety System + . This includes a Pre-Crash System with pedestrian detection; Advanced Lane Keeping Assist to help you stay on course; Road Sign Assist that presents traffic sign information to the driver; Automatic High Beam System for enhanced vision at night; and Adaptive Cruise Control, which regulates your speed to that of the vehicle in front.

Advanced Hybrid Battery

ADVANCED HYBRID BATTERY

Energy-management of the nickel-metal hydride battery is controlled by sophisticated software. This ensures the battery is recharged as necessary during driving, so that external charging is never required. The compact design contributes to significantly increased boot capacity.

12.3-Inch Multimedia Display

12.3-INCH MULTIMEDIA DISPLAY

The extra large 12.3-inch multimedia display allows driver and front passenger to interact using Remote Touch, while voice commands also control a number of applications. The split-widescreen is optimised for simultaneously viewing two types of information, for example large map display and DAB radio station information.

3-Zone Climate

3-ZONE CLIMATE

Featuring world first nanoe® technology, the new GS cabin is divided into three electronically controlled climate zones. Front seat occupants input their individual settings via Remote Touch or the front panel, while rear passengers control their zone using a dedicated panel.

Digital Connectivity

DIGITAL CONNECTIVITY

Multiple digital applications can be synchronised to the multimedia display. For example, a smart phone’s entire address book can be simply downloaded, and then scrolled through on the display. An iPhone® or other multimedia devices can be viewed and operated via different display screens.

Heating and Ventilation

HEATING AND VENTILATION

In combination with leather upholstery, the driver and front passenger can individually heat or ventilate their seats as desired. This adds to the sense of bespoke luxury and is especially welcome in extreme weather conditions.

Highly Supportive Seats

HIGHLY SUPPORTIVE SEATS

A specialist team worked for over 5 years developing a seat structure that delivers optimum relief from fatigue. Adjustable pelvic support – a world first – together with shoulder and side support and butterfly headrests are specified on both front seats in Premium grade models.

Leather Steering Wheel

LEATHER STEERING WHEEL

A new 3-spoke leather trimmed steering wheel has been designed for the new GS. Beautifully crafted, it features buttons for audio, display, phone and voice command positioned close to the thumb tips.

Paddle Shift

PADDLE SHIFT

Although all new GS models can be driven in fully automatic mode, the steering wheel mounted paddle shift controls let the driver make swift, manual gear changes. First developed for Formula 1 cars, this technology enables a more engaging drive.

'Atkinson Cycle' Petrol Engine

‘ATKINSON CYCLE’ PETROL ENGINE

Equipped with innovative D-4S direct injection and dual VVT-i technology, a highly efficient ‘Atkinson Cycle’ engine is at the heart of the GS 300h (2.5-litre, 4-cylinder) and GS 450h (3.5-litre, V6). Also featuring Start/Stop, these breakthrough powertrains help reduce fuel consumption and emissions even further.

Electric Vehicle Mode

ELECTRIC VEHICLE MODE

With sufficient battery charge, EV mode lets you drive at lower speeds over shorter distances using just electric power. EV mode is whisper quiet, emissions-free and consumes no fuel. This is ideal, for instance, when driving in slow-moving traffic or enclosed car parks.

Full Hybrid Performance

FULL HYBRID PERFORMANCE

The new GS 300h and GS 450h deliver impressive Full Hybrid performance. You can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.9 seconds in the GS 450h (up to 250 km/h where permitted) while, overall, combined emissions of the GS 300h are just 106 g/km* and fuel consumption is only 62.8mpg*. * For the Executive grade.

Power Control Unit

POWER CONTROL UNIT

The ‘brain’ of Lexus Hybrid Drive, the Power Control Unit (PCU) constantly optimises the allocation of power resources – electric, petrol or a combination of both. The PCU also manages the process of charging the hybrid battery, either by allocating engine power to drive the generator or through regenerative braking.

Regenerative Braking

REGENERATIVE BRAKING

When braking or decelerating, the vehicle’s wheels drive the high-output electric motor so that it functions as a generator. Kinetic energy – which would otherwise be lost as heat – is then captured and converted into electric power. This is stored in the hybrid battery for later use when driving in Electric Vehicle mode or accelerating swiftly.

Ten Airbags

TEN AIRBAGS

In addition to an immensely strong passenger safety cell, occupant protection is provided by ten sensor controlled airbags. All seatbelts, except for the centre rear seat, are also specified with pre-tensioners. The driver and front passenger are protected by 2-stage head airbags, as well as knee and side airbags. Outer rear seats are equipped with side airbags as standard, while curtain shield airbags run the full length of both cabin sides. This exceptional level of safety protection is provided as standard in the new GS. As a result, injury risk is significantly reduced.

Adaptive High-beam System

ADAPTIVE HIGH-BEAM SYSTEM

At night, Adaptive High Beam uses the same camera as Advanced Lane Keeping Assist to detect oncoming cars and automatically dip the high beam headlamps. This reduces the chance of accidentally dazzling other drivers and lets you concentrate on the road ahead.

Blind Spot Monitor

BLIND SPOT MONITOR

Radar devices mounted in the rear bumper detect vehicles in adjacent lanes that are not visible in the door mirrors. If the driver is indicating to change lane and a vehicle enters the blind spot, a warning signal appears in the relevant door mirror(s).

Road Sign Assist

ROAD SIGN ASSIST

The Road Sign Assist (RSA) system on the new GS recognises traffic signs using the windscreen mounted camera, and provides information to the driver in the multi-information display. RSA can detect signs that are compliant with the Vienna Convention (including electroluminescent and flashing signs).
