2014 LEXUS GS300H

The second hybrid model in the new Lexus GS line-up has touched down in Australia, entering alongside a range-wide update - including a new eight-speed auto - and a pricing shuffle.

Revealed internationally in April, the $79,000 new GS 300h enters between the petrol-powered GS 350 and GS 250 models, while fellow hybrid the GS 450h sits at the head of the table.

The arrival of the GS 300h boosts the local Lexus hybrid range to seven, debuting alongside the new ES 300h and joining the CT 200h, IS 300h, GS 450h, RX 450h and LS 600h.

Driven by the same 2.5 litre petrol-electric hybrid system found in the smaller IS 300h, power in the GS 300h is rated at the same 164kW and 221Nm.

Lexus promises fuel consumption figures of 5.2 l/100km on the combined cycle, with emissions rated at 121g/km - making it the most efficient model in the GS range.

The new GS 300h will be available in Luxury, F Sport and Sports Luxury variants.


2014 GS Upgrades And Price Changes

Lexus has also introduced a range of updates across the GS line this week, along with price changes that range from a $45 cut to a $1600 increase.

Headlining the upgrades is a new eight-speed auto for the GS 350, replacing the six-speed system that will still do duty in the GS 250.

Sport Luxury models also gain new 19-inch alloys to replace the 18-inch hoops on 2013 models, along with LED fog lights.

All GS models get an upgraded full-colour head-up display, projecting road speed, gear position, radio station, navigation details and pre-collision safety alerts onto the windscreen.
