3rd Gen Gs300 Uk Specification

Recommended Posts

Wondered if this might interest some people.

My Lexus dealer gave me a call yesterday and suggested I dropped in on my way home. He'd just received the full specification lists for UK GS300 models. I've asked him to make me a copy of the bits he's allowed, but the key points I can remember are...

There are three main spec levels - S, SE and SE-L.

S is the entry level and has fabric seats, and goes without satnav, auto wipers, parking sensors, rear camera, etc.

SE is set to be the most popular model, and includes as standard:

  • satellite navigation with Electronic Traffic Avoidance
  • Bluetooth phone integration
  • parking sensors front and rear
  • reversing camera
  • rain sensing wipers
  • automatic headlights
  • adaptive front lighting (AFS)
  • tyre pressure monitoring
  • leather seats, ventilated and heated
  • leather steering wheel (not wood)
  • smart key
  • cruise control (not adapative)
  • soft close boot lid (trunk)
  • LED rear lamp clusters
  • 17" alloy wheels
  • 10 speaker hi-fi with in-dash 6 disc changer

Of interest to people like me (I'm 6ft 4ins tall), the SE is available in two models, either with or without a sunroof.

The SE-L adds the Mark Levinson hi-fi, 18" alloy wheels and a rear spoiler. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Pre-Crash Safety System (PCS) are available as options.

There will be three interior leather themes - ivory with birds eye maple, ash with black birds eye maple, and black with walnut.

All GS300s sold in the UK are RWD (AWD not available). The 3.0-litre V6 is rated at 245bhp, with 0-62mph pegged at 7.2 seconds and economy on the combined cycle at 28.8mpg.

The GS430 will be available slightly later than the 300. Adaptive suspension will be standard on the GS430, but won't be available on the GS300. The GS430 will get the new VDIM system, while the GS300 will make do with the revised VSC.

No prices until the end of March, and the official launch is April 15th.

Colours are (with their US equivalents):-

St Lucia Pearl (US: Crystal White)

Caspian Sky (US: Glacier Frost Mica)

Palladio Silver (US: Mercury Metallic)

Astral Black (US: Black Onyx)

Mesa Red (US: Matador Red Mica)

Kalahari Sand (US: Chardonnay Pearl)

Boreal Green (US: Cypress Pearl)

Canterbury Blue (US: Blue Onyx Pearl)

Athabasca Shale (US: Quartz Shadow Metallic)


That's all I can remember, but if I get more info, I'll update here if people are interested.
