Taking a devilish Lexus GS 350 into the heart of the Delta
Author Michael Kaplan
Starting price: $52,590
Engine: Equipped with 306 horses generating 6,400 rpm, this supercar-inspired sedan gets 19 mpg in the city, 28 on the highway.
Perks: The Lexus Enform system has an app suite that allows you to make restaurant reservations on the go, and 24-hour navigation assistance can be summoned with a phone call. In case you happen to miss seeing an accident in the making at the crossroads ahead, the car’s pre-collision system begins braking two seconds before impact.
Performance: Improved traction and handling come from Lexus’ All-Weather Drive, which monitors road conditions and allocates engine power—ranging from 50/50 to 30/70—between the car’s front and rear axles as needed.
