LEXUS SAFETY SYSTEM+*
With the most comprehensive safety system ever offered on the GS, security comes standard.
LEXUS ENFORM SAFETY CONNECT*
Lexus Enform Safety Connect offers you the peace of mind of knowing that Roadside Assistance* can be there when you want it most. Whether you’re involved in a collision and unable to call for help, your vehicle is stolen, or there is any other type of emergency, assistance can be sent directly to your vehicle’s GPS location. Lexus Enform Safety Connect is complimentary for the first 10 years of ownership.
LEXUS DYNAMIC HANDLING SYSTEM INCLUDING DYNAMIC REAR STEERING
Lexus Dynamic Handling coordinates Dynamic Rear Steering and Variable Gear-Ratio Steering to anticipate and deliver the ideal handling behavior for virtually any situation.
BLIND SPOT MONITOR* WITH REAR CROSS-TRAFFIC ALERT*
To help you change lanes with confidence, the Blind Spot Monitor is designed to detect and warn you of vehicles approaching or positioned in the adjacent lanes. And for added peace of mind, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert can help you when backing out of a parking space by notifying you of vehicles approaching from either side.
VEHICLE DYNAMICS INTEGRATED MANAGEMENT (VDIM)* WITH SPORT MODE
VDIM is designed to predict and take steps to help prevent a skid even before it occurs by using a combination of individual-wheel braking, torque modulation and steering torque assistance. Headed to the track? The exclusive Sport mode setting adjusts the sensitivity of the system, raising the threshold before VDIM intervenes, and enabling you to push the vehicle to its limits.
Every Lexus features the latest in braking technology. Power-assisted four-wheel disc brakes include an Anti-lock Braking System to help maintain steering control while braking. Brake Assist* helps provide additional braking boost in panic-stop scenarios. And Electronic Brakeforce Distribution modulates the amount of stopping power sent to the front and rear wheels, for enhanced control.
The front-passenger seat is designed to detect whether the seat is occupied by an adult or a child, or is vacant. In case the system detects a child or empty passenger seat, the system prevents the passenger's front, side and knee airbags from being deployed. The front passenger's airbag features two chambers, creating an indentation in the center impact area that helps to provide occupant protection in a severe frontal collision.
BACKUP CAMERA* WITH DYNAMIC GRIDLINES
When you put the vehicle in reverse, the view from the backup camera is shown on the multimedia display in full color with dynamic gridlines to assist you with parking and other maneuvers.
HILL-START ASSIST CONTROL*
Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) helps to increase driver confidence when ascending hills. While stopped on an incline, conventional vehicles may roll back once you step off the brake. HAC helps maintain the vehicle's position by applying the brakes to all four wheels until the vehicle begins moving forward.
HIGH-PERFORMANCE F SPORT BRAKE (RWD ONLY)
Massive front brakes with four-piston calipers, two-piece rotors and high-friction pads* deliver stopping performance as precise as the vehicle’s handling. In addition to decreasing unsprung weight and providing enhanced cooling for reduced brake fade, the design of the F SPORT brake is unlike any in the world: Its lightweight aluminum hat is fastened to the sliding section using an integrated pin for added airflow.
Taking the exterior design to the next level, the LED rear combination lamps are constructed to create a powerful presence while consuming less power for greater efficiency. LED taillamps also last longer and illuminate faster than conventional bulbs, possibly giving drivers behind you more time to react to the brake lamps.
INTUITIVE PARKING ASSIST*
Available Intuitive Parking Assist utilizes inconspicuous sensors integrated into the front and rear bumpers that are designed to detect surrounding objects. Using audible tones and an indicator on the multimedia display, the system can notify you of a detected object’s location and proximity, helping with routine tasks like parallel parking.
LED HEADLAMPS AND LED DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHTS
Make your presence known even before you arrive. The unique headlamp design employs striking LEDs that not only illuminate your path, but also give a brilliant, high-contrast impression. Housed in the aggressively low front fascia, these headlamps are a bold addition to the spindle grille. Inset daytime running lights accentuate the design and can make your Lexus more visible to vehicles approaching from a distance.
SMART STOP* TECHNOLOGY
This system is designed to automatically reduce engine power when both the brake and accelerator pedals are pressed at the same time under certain conditions.
DIRECT TIRE PRESSURE MONITOR SYSTEM*
The direct Tire Pressure Monitor System continually monitors the air pressure of all four tires. When the tire pressure drops to a critically low level, a light on the instrument panel alerts the driver to the location of the tire.
WHIPLASH INJURY LESSENING* FRONT SEATBACKS
In the event of a rear-end collision, the Whiplash Injury Lessening front seatbacks are designed to push backward to help deflect and absorb energy from the impact. The seats also have active headrests,* which reduce the space between the occupant's head and the headrest, limiting excessive head movement and helping to decrease the severity of whiplash-type injuries.
PREMIUM TRIPLE-BEAM LED HEADLAMPS
Making a statement before you even arrive, available full-LED headlamps feature a three-projector design that creates an eye-catching L shape. Adding to this brilliant design, the headlamps also have LED side turn signals.
This system detects moisture on the glass, then automatically turns on the wipers and continuously adjusts their speed.
RIGID BODY STRUCTURE WITH CRUMPLE ZONES
Helping to dissipate the force of a collision, crumple zones in the front and rear are intentionally designed to compress at a controlled rate, helping protect occupants within the more rigid passenger compartment.
COLD WEATHER PACKAGE
Headlamp washers, windshield wiper de-icer, water-repellent front-door glass and more.
