Best Luxury Car:

2015 Lexus GS 350

Toyota's luxury division has always placed a premium on exceptional build quality, high levels of features and competitive pricing to establish its reputation in the luxury segment, but now with the Lexus GS 350, exterior design comes to the fore in making this 4-door stand apart from the competition. And good looks are certainly a major factor in maintaining a high resale value.

The new spindle-shaped single frame grille flanked by LED lighting gives the Lexus GS 350 a distinctive face. The character lines are flowing yet taut, giving the sedan an athletic presence. That muscular look is backed up by a free-revving 3.5-liter V6 producing 306 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque.

The interior of the 2015 Lexus GS 350 is as handsome as the interior with top-notch materials, the precision craftsmanship evidenced by the uniform gaps, and a host of creature comforts including power seats, perforated leather trim and dual zone automatic climate controls, all items that enhances the vehicle's value on the resale market.

The GS 350 also offers a wide range of options including all-wheel drive, a hybrid version and a top-spec F Sport model, making a luxury sedan for all tastes, seasons and budgets.
