2017 Lexus GS 200t: Grille, baby, grille
Is it just me, or does that spindle grille look normal now?
Starting at $46,310, the Lexus GS 200t can be had for less than the Cadillac CTS or the Volvo S90.
The GS 200t was introduced last year for those who found the GS 350 a little out of their price range. Spindle grille included at no extra charge.
Powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine, the rear-wheel drive sedan sports 241 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.
The GS 200t can also be had in an F Sport variant with performance enhancements. For those looking for different drivetrains, the GS is also available with a 3.5-liter engine or as a hybrid.
New for 2017 is the inclusion of Lexus Safety System Plus as standard equipment, including adaptive cruise control.
Navigation in the GS 200t, normally $1,730, is currently free. If you want a GS 200t without navigation you'll have to specially order your car.
The 12.3-inch color display can be split so that one function occupies the left two thirds of the screen, with information about climate, audio, navigation, settings or phone displayed on the right one third.
The navigation screen has pretty cool 3D graphics.
Unfortunately, it's all controlled by the difficult-to-use Remote Touch joystick. Oh, and there's no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, either.
