About the GS

Sold as the Toyota Aristo in Japan, the Lexus GS was an executive car dating back to 1991 for its first generation.

Following a design brief to be simple, sleek and non-fussy, much like its German counterpart, the GS was manufactured at the Toyota Tahara Assembly plant in Japan. With 4,200 welds, only 8 spot welds were performed by hand, the others completed by in-house robots.

To enhance the premium quality, Lexus installed a full leather interior, glossy wooden steering wheel, excellent sound system and a fully functioning moon roof. Lexus worked hard on matching a class set by companies like Mercedes, namely cars such as the Acura RLX, Infiniti M, Jaguar XF, Audi A6, Volvo S80, Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the BMW 5 Series.

Later models, from the fourth generation in 2011 kept the same parallels with the German automakers, and where Mercedes and BMW began opting for sharp, angular features, so too did the GS. Now with a V6 engine, the GS had a 5-speed automatic transmission with a choice of three driving modes; Eco, Sport S and Sport S+.

All modern features were included as to b expected such as blind spot monitoring, lane-keep assist, surround sound and an automatic driver monitoring system.

The GS lasted nearly 20 years, with Lexus pulling the car from production in August 2020 and replacing it with the ES for European markets.

For the next generation of GS’s after the first models, Lexus again, mimicked the rounded headlamps of German automobiles and released this new car with a huge marketing campaign headed up by the phrase ‘something wicked this way comes’ (a phrase taken from the same entitled novel written by Ray Bradbury in 1962). Following this campaign, Lexus went on to sell 30,622 units within the first eight years of its release.
