(4 Stars) 

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

The Lexus GS is back after a one-year hiatus, and the 2013 Lexus GS450h is the exciting new hybrid option. Overall, the GS is still in the process of carving out a new identity for itself, and while it remains to be seen whether Lexus is successful in this regard, the car offers enough features that it would be difficult for customers to be disappointed. After all, the vehicle offers substantial power and performance, while still maintaining superior fuel economy for its class. Lexus has also included a vast array of interior features that make the 2013 Lexus GS450h a worthy vehicle in the midlevel luxury category, on par with its American and European competition.
