2010 Lexus GS Hybrid Review

The 2010 Lexus GS Hybrid offers the performance of a large luxury car but with better fuel economy.

Pros & Cons

  • Good performance for a hybrid
  • Luxurious interior with comfortable seats
  • Limited headroom and legroom
  • Electrically-assisted steering feels artificial

2010 Lexus GS Hybrid Overview

The 2010 Lexus GS Hybrid defies the stereotype that hybrids lack performance abilities. When it was new, reviewers thought that the GS Hybrid offered sharp performance and noted that it gets better fuel economy than the non-hybrid 2010 GS 350. While test drivers noticed a slight delay when accelerating, they felt that when the GS Hybrid’s V6 engine gets going, it is a thrill to drive. Still, reviewers found that the GS Hybrid can’t match the handling abilities of cars like the 2010 BMW 5-Series or 2010 Audi A6.

Reviewers felt that the electrically-assisted steering lacked feel, but appreciated its smooth ride. They also noted that at 22/25 mpg city/highway, the GS Hybrid’s fuel economy isn’t much better than some non-hybrid luxury cars. The GS Hybrid was not crash tested in 2010, but has a long list of safety features.

When it was new, reviewers liked the GS Hybrid’s interior and thought it provided classic Lexus luxury. Reviewers particularly liked the interior build and material quality. For the most part, test drivers felt that the seats were comfortable and supportive. However, head- and legroom is in short supply, even for shorter adults. Since the battery is stored in the GS Hybrid’s trunk, cargo space is small for the class.

Standard features on the 2010 GS Hybrid include parking sensors, rain-sensing wipers, a sunroof, push-button start, heated and cooled front seats, dual-zone climate control, a power rear sunshade, Bluetooth and a stereo with an iPod interface and satellite radio. Optional features when the GS Hybrid was new included navigation, adaptive cruise control and an upgraded stereo.

Other Cars to Consider

If you’re seeking white-knuckle performance, you should consider the 2010 BMW 5-Series. With a pedigree for power and handling, the 5-Series provides an exciting driving experience that is almost unmatched in the class.

If you like the GS Hybrid, you might want to consider the gas-only 2010 Lexus GS. The gas version tends to be priced significantly less than its hybrid counterpart, and that price difference may outweigh your savings at the pump.
