: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Redesigned for 2013, the GS, a longtime member of the Lexus family, blends sporty handling with the convenience of a midsize four-door sedan. This latest rendition gives Toyota’s luxury car division a worthy competitor to higher-class German and American models, including the BMW 5 Series and Cadillac CTS. Only two versions were offered initially: the GS 350 and GS 450h hybrid, both with V6 engines. Joining the lineup for 2016 are two more: the GS 200t with a turbocharged four-cylinder, and a super-performance GS F. Addition of an optional F Sport package can enhance the pleasures of a GS 200t.

What's New for 2016

The GS 200t is a brand-new version of the GS, with a 2-liter turbocharged engine rather than a V6.

Changes to all GS models include revised front fascias and rocker panels. Bi-LED headlights and running lights have been added. Multimedia features have been enhanced, including an available 12.3-inch screen. A revised Remote Touch Interface should make it easier to control primary functions, and Siri Eyes Free integration can provide Apple users with turn-by-turn directions. Newly available Lexus Safety System + includes a pre-collision warning with pedestrian detection, lane-departure alert with steering assist, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high-beam headllights.

Choosing Your Lexus GS 200t

Beneath the hood of each GS 200t, a 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine develops 241 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque (versus 311 hp for the GS 350). The sedan comes only with rear-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission, whereas an all-wheel-drive system is available for the GS 350. Paddle shifters are included.

Acceleration to 60 mph takes 7.2 seconds, according to Lexus, compared to 5.7 seconds for the GS 350. Fuel economy is estimated at 22 mpg in city driving and 33 mpg on the highway, dropping to 21/30 mpg in F Sport form. In contrast, the GS 350 gets an estimate of 20/29 mpg (city/highway), or 19/26 mpg with the F Sport package.

In standard form, the GS 200t comes well-equipped with 17-inch nine-spoke alloy wheels, bi-LED headlights and running lights, wood interior trim, NuLuxe-trimmed seat upholstery and interior trim, 10-way power front seats, Bluetooth, pushbutton start, Siri Eyes Free, and a 12-speaker audio system. A sunroof and rearview camera also are standard.

Options for the GS include 18-inch wheels, a head-up display, Intuitive Parking Assist, a power trunk lid, and a Mark Levinson surround-sound audio system with 15 Green Edge speakers and 835-watt output.

Only one trim level is offered, but the GS 200t is available with four optional packages, as well as several standalone options:

Lexus GS 200t

Cold Weather Package

Adds headlight washers, water-repellent front door glass, and wiper de-icers.

Lexus GS 200t

Navigation Package

Includes a 12.3-inch screen, Lexus Enform App Suite, and voice recognition.

Lexus GS 200t

Premium Package

Provides a little more class, including heated and ventilated seats with Climate Concierge, a power rear sunshade, and rain-sensing wipers.

Lexus GS 200t

F Sport Package

Adding the F Sport Package cranks GS 200t sportiness up a notch, mixing styling details with track-tuned components. Included are a 16-way power sport driver’s seat, 19-inch staggered wheels, an F Sport-tuned Adaptive Variable Suspension, and enhanced brakes. Also included are a rear lip spoiler, aluminum interior trim and pedals, exclusive perforated leather seating; and variable-ratio steering. A Dynamic Rear Steering system is available.

CarsDirect Tip

Opting for the turbo rather than a V6 cuts down on performance, but boosts fuel economy significantly. You also save $4,385 by taking a GS 200t rather than a GS 350. Even in standard guise, priced at $45,615, the GS 200t is quite luxurious. Reaching for the F Sport option might enhance GS 200t handling, but it doesn’t affect performance.
