Lexus press release :
Lexus has introduced a series of styling, technical and equipment
revisions that further strengthen the full hybrid GS 450h’s appeal in
the premium saloon market. It has rationalised the model line-up into
two equipment grades – SE and SE-L – and introduced new exterior colour
choices, alloy wheel designs and interior trims.
The GS, powered by a smooth and ultra-efficient combination of a
3.5-lire petrol V6 and a compact 650V electric motor, delivers sharp
performance with fuel economy and emissions that are unmatched by its
conventional petrol-powered rivals.
Revised Pre-Crash Safety system and active headrests
The Pre-Crash Safety system in the GS 450h has been revised to include
pre-crash brake technology to support the established pre-crash seatbelt
and brake assist functions.
Both front seats have new, inflator-operated active headrests, which
are activated by a signal from the ECU should the car suffer a rear-end
impact. The inflator slides a piston into the headrest, unlocks the
mechanism and projects the headrest forwards and upwards to support the
head and reduce the risk of whiplash injury.
Navigation and audio upgrades
In common with its sister Lexus models, the GS 450h has a new 40GB hard
disc drive (HDD) navigation system, giving Europe-wide coverage with
traffic information data capture in each country. The
HDD also provides 10GB of storage space for owners to create their
own on-board sound library of digital audio files – room for around
2,000 music tracks.
Two audio systems are featured in the GS 450h range: a 10-speaker
Lexus premium package and a 14-speaker Mark Levinson Premium Surround
Sound System giving 5.1-channel surround sound on selected CDs and DVDs.
Both systems come with a USB port and audio jack plug for full
connection and integration of portable music players. The Bluetooth,
provided as standard, includes an audio streaming function. As an
option, owners can upgrade their audio system to receive DAB digital
The 2010 GS 450h has a new front grille design that features a series of
horizontal bars. The hybrid-blue rear lamp clusters have been modified
to incorporate larger, transparent outer lenses and a new 18-inch alloy
wheel design has been introduced for the SE-L model. The SE version
rides on 17-inch alloys, with five-double-spoke 18-inch wheels available
in a combined package with parking sensors.
In the cabin there is a new hybrid-blue backlit stop/start button and
the choice of a new Venaro Grey semi-aniline leather upholstery option,
with contrasting black stitching and grey bird’s eye maple wood grain
The range of 11 exterior colours includes three new shades: Vanilla
Mist, Richmond Green and Atlantic Blue.
