Why the Lexus GS-F competes with the top sports sedans in its class


The Lexus GS-F wants to make noise in a good way. In a race to compete as a top sports sedan, it has the wherewithal to come out on top. We recently drove the GS-F and got an opportunity to experience why it stands as one of the best sports sedans in its class.

The GS-F has the power of a premium sports car. It comes with a 5.0-Liter which produces 467-horsepower and go from 0 to 60 mph in roughly under 4.5 seconds.


But there it also provides great safety for drivers and passengers with the Lexus Safety system. Features are the forward collision warning system with pedestrian detection, lane keep assist, and lane departure alert.  The GS-F also comes with 10 airbags, rear-side airbags, and knee airbags for the driver and front passenger.

Some of the technology features include the standard Remote Touch system comes with a 12.3-inch dashboard screen. A touchpad is positioned in the center console and allows drivers to control audio, navigation, and temperature.

Although there are other sports sedans with more power, the GS-F garners respect from the competition.
