The GS 250 is the third model in the new GS lineup after the GS 350, which is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 delivering 306 hp and the GS 450h that links a 3.5-liter Atkinson-cycle V6 to the Lexus Hybrid Drive for a combined system output of 338 hp. The base 2.5-liter engine is capable of pushing the GS from 0-100km/h in 8.6 seconds and on to a top speed of 230km/h. The 2.5-liter is mated to a close-ratio 6-speed automatic transmission that features sequential manual shifting mode. According to Lexus, the GS 250 returns a combined fuel economy of 8.9L/100 km with CO2 emissions of 207g/km.
Despite being the least powerful model of the range, the GS 250 is available with the optional F Sport Package that adds cosmetic touches such as a refreshed bumper, 19-inch alloys, sportier suspension setup and more direct steering wheel system.
Lexus said that the new GS 250 will be available in several markets around the world including China, Japan and Europe. More specific details will be released nearer the date of the launch next year. I am pretty sure that Borneo Motors would welcome this model with open arms.
