Lexus GS Hybrid’s Interior Pinpointed As One Of The Best

Available as a hybrid car, the Lexus GS has been rewarded for its comfortable interior.

In its 7 Best Car Interiors Under $60,000 feature, AutoTrader.com’s editors have highlighted what they feel are the best interiors currently available in the market.

The Lexus GS is the only model available as a Hybrid in the lot.

“Automakers are increasingly investing in high-quality interior materials and finishes at all price points, offering consumers more for less,” said AutoTrader.com Site Editor Brian Moody. “While $60,000 is a lot of money, these vehicles offer details often reserved for more exotic cars in the six-figure price range.”

While a car’s exterior might be the first thing someone notices, Americans who commute are spending more than 50 minutes per day on average inside their cars, hence the emphasis placed on interiors in the feature.

AutoTrader.com’s editors published the following about the Lexus GS’ interior:

“The Lexus GS luxury sedan graduated to the big leagues with its 2013 redesign, unveiling an all-new cabin that marries Germanic build quality with Japanese aesthetics and technology. The dash is covered in a thick-yet-pliable material that reminds us of BMW’s best, while the stereo knobs look and operate like high-end home-theater pieces. The hybrid-powered GS 450h offers beautiful light-colored bamboo trim that we wish were standard on all GS models. The GS model’s power front sport seats are Lexus’ best ever, in our opinion, providing great lateral support along with the kind of comprehensive adjustability that’s typically only found in German cars. As for Lexus’ unique Remote Touch mouse-like infotainment interface, we think it’s an interesting departure from the touchscreen/knob-based norm, giving a boost to the GS model’s distinctiveness factor.”
