Editor's Overview

If you were building the perfect performance sedan, you’d likely want it loaded with luxury, technology, stellar performance credentials and impeccable reliability and resale statistics. That car is the 2018 Lexus GS. From a performance standpoint, we’d place the GS slightly below the BMW 5 Series but on par with the Audi A6.
