Lexus GS 450h (2012): Full Review – Part 4

Saturday, June 30th, 2012 4:48:24 by

The car has a premium 18-speaker audio set clocked at a massive 835 watts to reproduce the music in sheer quality. The audio system itself has all the necessary connectivity options from Bluetooth to USB. Phonebook is seamlessly synced and the system’s voice command works perfectly, without any jitters and clippings, to give dial numbers and play tracks from the phone.

The voice dialling command system is secure as it searches and dials accurately from the phonebook. While connected to system via USB, Enform can also play any track by commanding vocally.

The inclusion of apps like Facebook and Twitter is a step toward the concept of connected cars. It connects to the web via 3G connection and the apps are updates promptly. The Sat-Nav is another service that works smoothly. There are other apps like OpenTable, Yelp and Bing search.

Bing is one more service that is worth mentioning. It works conjointly with the navigation system. All the driver has to do is speak the search query and search engine shows results against it. Select the most appropriate to you and make it your destination.

Final Take

In a nutshell, the car is as smooth as it can be and as rigid as a sedan can afford in a ‘Sport Plus’ mode. The tech is up-to-date and connected car concept does not hurt the feelings. A2DP and USB connectivity are amply efficient to make calls and play tracks.

The price at $58,900 is a Lexus premium but well earned. All in all, the car will certainly give other brands in the same price bracket a run for their money.
