Lexus GS350 F Sport
That the 2016 Lexus GS350 F Sport isn’t as quick as the last GS350 we testeddespite a higher power rating shouldn’t trouble you in the slightest. Because like every Lexus ever built—including the LFA supercar—this one isn’t about numbers.
This is a fine sedan for moving four people over great distances in genuine comfort. It’s a fantastic machine if you need to take your aunt to brunch or schmooze clients afflicted with a decision-making disorder. And it will not embarrass itself during a six-tenths effort on a favorite back road.
What it won’t do, however, is sway enthusiasts seeking segment-leading performance or deeply involving dynamics.
