Looking for a vehicle that not only screams luxury but can be loads of fun to drive? Look no further. The Lexus GS430 is the ride for you.
The GS430 sports sedan comes with some very impressive features, like a 4.3-liter 32 valve V-8 engine boasting 216 kW for starters. This is the sort of power that will deliver what you need, when you need it. The immense power output means that the high-end luxury machine bullets from 0-100 km/h in just under 6 seconds. The engine is linked to a very fine 6-speed automatic transmission that is electronically controlled with intelligence. What does that mouthful mean? In a nut shell, the intelligent auto learns how you drive. The Lexus GS430 applies the power to the road via its nice fat rear wheels. The class leading TRAC (traction control) balances the fine line between colossal engine torque and wheel spin. Certainly in the Lexus GS430, you have one of the world’s finest drive trains.
In the all important handling department, the GS430 sits very well on the road. Even if pushed hard through the bends the big saloon holds on in a very composed manner. The car’s underpinning double-wishbone and multi-link suspension contains Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS), and this lavishes the Lexus GS300 with a cloud-like ride. There is even electronically modulated steering that compensates for wind and other obstacles that can cause the wheel to shift unexpectedly. You can expect the best, and once behind the wheel you won’t be let down. The Lexus is a highly satisfying drive. Huge mileages can be eaten up in complete luxury and refinement.
The interior is simply awe inspiring. Rich soft leather trim and a choice of different wood accents add an even greater splash of material comfort to the already magnificent cabin. Standard, are the sumptuous heated front seats, dual climate control, voice activated navigation and a premium sound system with 14 speakers and a 330 watt 7.1 channel system. These items are all part and parcel of one of the world’s finest machines. There is even a rear back-up camera that activates when the gear shift is placed in reverse. There are many other options that make Lexus stand out among the crowd. And if you’re looking for a luxury-sports sedan, then the Lexus GS430 is definitely worth checking out.
