Unlike typical Lexus power steering, where you can turn the wheel with one finger, the GS feels more responsive and in touch with the road at all times. Clearing an apex with a good straightaway ahead, I slammed the gas, but even with the revs well above 5, the engine didn't have the power for a fast exit.

    Lexus GS review notes: Everything you expect a Lexus to be and a bit sportier | Autoweek

    The navigation system uses a Lexus' Enform system integrates Yelp, Bing search, Pandora, and other apps. The Bad Real-world fuel economy averaged under 20 mpg. The cabin tech interface controller lacked the heft that should be present in a luxury vehicle. For its model year, Lexus gave the GS a fierce look and performance options that make it one of the best-handling Lexus models, and let it begin to approach the sport levels achieved by the German competition.

    Catching the eye first of all, however, is the tremendous Beyond the main menu screen, this whopping display shows its information in a perpetual split, using about two-thirds of the area for maps, destination input, audio selection, and phone calls.

    The other third shows current audio, phone, climate control, and fuel economy. Click through for the full photo gallery and more details. Lexus launched its mouselike controller for in-cabin electronics a few years ago, and this system was refined for the GS Where before it felt like a joystick, now it slides around more like a mouse. Previously, the pointer could move anywhere on the screen, but now it more securely snaps to the onscreen buttons, making it easier to use while driving.

    Lexus also took away the Enter buttons, previously mounted on either side of the controller, replacing that function with a push down on the controller. I found the controller a little too sensitive, as it too easily jumped to a different button when I tried to press down. Looking into the settings, there was no way to reduce the sensitivity, but it was possible to raise the level of haptic response, so the controller would be less likely to skip off a selected button.

    The controller also felt too much like a cheap, plastic mouse; I would expect more heft for switchgear in a luxury car. Along with the controller upgrade, Lexus improved its voice command.

    Pressing the voice command gave me a lot of top-level options for navigation, phone, and audio. I could place a call by saying the name of a person in my phone's contact list, or request music from an attached iPod or USB drive by saying the artist name or album. Entering a destination still required saying the city, street name, and number individually, instead of as one string.

    The GS 's massive Despite the large screen, Lexus' navigation remains unchanged from that of prior model years.

    Maps, stored on a hard drive, only offer 2D views. The system uses traffic data from satellite to avoid jams, but does not offer text-to-speech for route guidance. The system offers quite a few ways to enter addresses, including the new eDestination feature, which lets you send destinations from a PC through the Lexus telematics system.

    More impressive is the system's integration with Lexus' Enform apps system. Enform is very much like the Toyota Entune system. It requires either an Android phone or iPhone running the Enform app. And as I have found with recent Toyota cars, my iPhone 3GS would only connect to the system sporadically, although the iPhone 4 and 4S seem to connect consistently. In the GS , the Enform apps complement the data brought in through satellite radio.
