Lexus will launch its all-new GS range with aggressive pricing, greater specification and better value than ever before.

Set to arrive in April, Lexus' new GS 250 and GS 350 models will feature sharp pricing across three variants, starting from $77,900* for the GS 250 Luxury model.

Compared with the outgoing model, the GS range now enters the market with a 20 per cent improvement in MLP, meaning customers are set to be the real winners with new Lexus GS.

Lexus customers will also be treated to segment rivalling levels of standard equipment with innovative features such as Blind Spot Monitor^, Tyre Pressure Monitoring, 8-sensor parking and clearance sonar^, reverse camera^, and Bi-Xenon HID headlamps with AFS#.

Other standard features include next generation Lexus Remote Touch (LRT), available metallic self-healing paint, Drive Mode Select, Rain sensing wipers, DAB+ Digital Radio, satellite navigation with live traffic alerts^^, four door smart entry with card key, advanced BluetoothTM with audio streaming** and Lexus' unique VDIM vehicle stability system.

The GS 250 range introduces two new variants - Luxury and F Sport - which join the existing Sports Luxury in the line-up.

All three are powered by an efficient, all-alloy, quad-cam V6 that develops 154 kW of power.

GS 350 models will mirror that of the GS 250 line-up and feature a best-in-class 233 kW, 3.5 litre petrol, all-alloy, quad cam V6.

GS 350's manufacturer's list price starts at $89,900* for the Luxury model.

The efficient yet potent GS 450h hybrid model, which develops a combined 254 kW of power, headlines the three-model range and will be available from June.

With a manufacturer's list price of $99,900*, the all-new GS hybrid addresses the outgoing model's price and packaging shortfalls.

It will enter the market $20,000 less than the superseded model while offering greater space, comfort, safety and specification.

Consuming just 6.3 litres of fuel per 100 km##, the GS 450h - Lexus' sixth hybrid vehicle - builds on 10 years of hybrid experience and offers a driving experience unlike anything else available on the market today.

GS 450h will also be available in Luxury, F Sport and Sport Luxury model variants.

"With its bold new look, newfound athleticism, innovative features, expanded range and exceptional pricing, the all-new GS range is sure to impress."

"The fourth generation GS will also cement our position as the industry leader in performance hybrids, offering an efficient yet powerful luxury tourer that leverages Lexus' 10 years of real world hybrid experience," Mr Cramb added.
