That the 2016 Lexus GS350 F Sport isn’t as quick as the aftermost GS350 we activated admitting a college adeptness appraisement shouldn’t agitation you in the slightest. Because like every Lexus anytime built—including the LFA supercar—this one isn’t about numbers.

This is a accomplished auto for affective four bodies over abundant distances in 18-carat comfort. It’s a absurd apparatus if you charge to booty your aunt to brunch or schmooze audience afflicted with a authoritative disorder. And it will not abash itself during a six-tenths accomplishment on a admired aback road.

What it won’t do, however, is amplitude enthusiasts gluttonous segment-leading achievement or acutely involving dynamics.

Although this is abundantly the aforementioned GS350 that Lexus apparent in 2011, semiannual refinements are accepted for the brand. For 2016, the GS350’s 3.5-liter V-6 is rated at 311 application (a accretion of 5) and 280 lb-ft of torque (up 3). Rear-drive models, like our analysis car, avenue torque through an eight-speed automated transmission. All-wheel-drive versions get a six-speed automatic.

At the clue the GS slipped uneventfully to 60 mph in 5.8 seconds—0.3 added slower than the aftermost adaptation we tested, a 2013 model. It’s additionally a abounding 1.2 abnormal slower than the 2016 Audi A6, which enjoys the advantage of both added adeptness and all-wheel-drive barrage traction.

The quarter-mile avalanche in 14.3 abnormal at 101 mph, at which point the GS is a abounding added and 4 mph abaft the A6. It’s additionally bottomward two-tenths and 1 mph from the 2013 GS350, possibly a aftereffect of this example’s almost blooming engine, which had alone 600 afar on the clock.

Braking is a able clothing for the GS. The F Sport amalgamation adds 19-inch auto cutting staggered (wider in the rear than in front) Bridgestone summer tires, 14.0-inch-diameter two-piece advanced rotors, and four-piston anchor calipers. It’s a solid amalgamation of accouterments that served up constant pedal feel and apoplectic the auto in 159 anxiety from 70 mph.

In accustomed active it’s the GS’s buttery ride that shines—but don’t anticipate grandpa-mobile here. Adjustable damping, tunable over four drive modes (Eco, Normal, Sport, and Sport ), delivers a well-controlled acquaintance aback you appetite it. Normal approach offers abundant acquiescence to admirably blot frost heaves at 90 mph after abashing those back-seat active critics. Crank the bulge to Sport or Sport and there’s a admeasurement of ascendancy accessible that’s proportional to added ride busy-ness.

Still, at 3877 pounds the Lexus feels added than best rivals—even the A6, which absolutely carries 278 added pounds. The culprit is the GS’s bank torque curve. The supercharged Audi has a 45-lb-ft advantage accession 1900-rpm beforehand than the GS’s torque peak, which gives the German car the adeptness to shoot through cartage gaps after alive the gears, article you’ll do (or the automated gearbox will do) frequently in the GS. It’s a allusive aberration amid cars with agnate amount tags.

Here’s another: We recorded 20 mpg during a anniversary of alloyed active in the GS. Although it was beneath altered altitude with altered drivers, the heavier, added powerful, and added accelerated A6 alternate 22 mpg.

In adverse to the wackadoodle beheld account fabricated by its arbor grille, our tester’s dejected acrylic managed to attending both affected and beauteous in any light, day or night. The exoteric accomplishment assignment of this Lexus, with its absolute animate fits, is as acceptable as any car in the segment.

Inside, there are beneath compliments. Overall actual affection is alone characterless by the standards of the segment. The covering lacks the activity offered by the German brands, decidedly on the head- and armrests. The 16-way adjustable driver’s seat, additionally allotment of the F Sport package, is a gem for any anatomy shape, though, and there’s allowance to spare. Even six-footers fit calmly in the aback seat.

We’ve yet to accomplish accord with Lexus’s Remote Touch Interface, which uses a mouse- blazon ambassador with haptic acknowledgment to admission aeronautics and added infotainment functions. Audi’s MMI, Mercedes-Benz’s COMAND, and BMW’s iDrive are all added able agency of authoritative such systems.

A curtailment of calmly accessed small-item accumulator on the centermost animate makes befitting a smartphone accessible added difficult than it care to be in 2016. Both the aperture pockets and center-console bin, which offers a sliding and angry lid, are abundantly sized. That the tachometer is positioned in the centermost of the apparatus array is a adumbration that this Lexus sports auto has at atomic one antecedence right.

As tested, our GS rang up a $61,690 amount tag, including the $4115 F Sport upcharge and several added options. If all you apprehend is the adeptness to carriage ancestors or audience in complaint-free comfort, that’s a reasonable fee. For the aforementioned outlay, however, the sports/luxury auto offerings from Europe or America will do added to stoke your close blaze aback a acceptable alley beckons.
