|   Wednesday, July 18, 2012
The Lexus GS 250 is the new addition to the GS range of Lexus. The car is developed on a whole new platform and is affordable, economic and provides all the necessary features of an entry level sports sedan.
At the helm of the GS 250 is a 1WT-I VTEC V6, named the 4GR-FSE, which features a direct port fuel injection system and features a 6 speed automatic transmission and has a list of hi-tech EX equipments, the engine displaces 154 kW of power and displaces 253 Nm of torque and boasts 2,500 cc.


The automatic gear box can be shifted to facilitate a sequential manual transmission system and the car features selective drive modes which make sure that car out performs all its competition in its class.
The GS 250 features an ECT-I sequential transmission and is engineered to deliver quicker transmission and higher torque output. The exterior design of the GS 250 is similar to that on the GS 350. Even the interior has been done up in a similar fashion, with the difference arising when it comes to engine specifications.

Standard electronics and luxury features on the GS 250 include standard HID – high intensity discharge – head lamps, auto leveling washers and 18 inch alloy rims, daytime running lights, heated light mirrors, front mounted fog lamps, rain sensing wipers, piano black trim detail and full interior leather upholstery.

A separate seat seating and ventilation system is available for the driver and the passenger and it features two ways lumbar support, 10 way electric adjustment and adjustable driver memory. The Lexus features a 12 speaker plus 1 woofer sound system and this gives out a blast of music every time the device is switched on.

A dual tone automatic air conditioning system, parking distance controller, drive mode select, guidance motor, reverse camera, Bluetooth support, cruise control and a electronic control rear mirror are other standard features in the GS 250.

The GS 250 features standard safety equipments such as BAS, ABS, EBD, TRC, VSC, and EPS. This is the first time that an energy saving auto climate control feature has been installed in a sedan in this price range. The new system called the S Flow system focuses the air flow in only the area of occupancy. The use of the Remote Touch feature allows a one push confinement system enabling audio, climate, Bluetooth and GPS activity at the same time.

The new drive mode selection option is also new in a low end GS class vehicle. The new drive models are ECO, NORMAL and SPORT. The Eco mode enhances throttle mapping hence is best for optimum performance or for cruising at normal speeds. The Normal mode has similar throttle mapping while the Sport mode has a revised throttle mapping. The Sport mode allows maximum speed and unleashes maximum throttle and hence provides an attractive driving experience.

The GS 250 does all these and much more at a very competitive price and hence it manages to set a benchmark in its class.
