Tuned by the same team of engineers who perfected the world-renowned LFA supercar, the GS features an Adaptive Variable Suspension that monitors and adjusts the shock absorber settings at each wheel depending on Drive Mode Select, road surface, vehicle speed and your driving style. Aluminum components with optimized bushings and special F SPORT tuning provide even greater steering response and reduced body lean.
Whether you’re looking for added exhilaration or taking a relaxing drive through the neighborhood, Drive Mode Select enables you to make your GS more responsive or efficient with a simple turn of a switch.
In Manual mode, the fast-shifting, eight-speed Sport Direct-Shift automatic Electronically Controlled Transmission with intelligence (RWD) can be controlled with paddle shifters, putting the exhilaration at your fingertips. By automatically increasing the engine speed during manual downshifts, the throttle-blipping function delivers faster and smoother gear changes for greater acceleration and response when you are coming out of corners.
This feature allows multiple drivers to personalize and recall the settings for the driver's seat (except lumbar), the outside mirrors and the steering-wheel position.
The center console features an armrest, storage bin, minijack, accessory power outlet and USB connectivity to charge portable devices while offering convenient playback access through the onboard audio system.
The electrochromic (auto-dimming) outside mirrors help reduce glare from bright lights behind you.
Taking the comfort of the standard seats even further, the heated and ventilated front seats offer separate heaters and fans in the seat cushions to provide optimum comfort, regardless of the weather.

VDIM is designed to predict and take steps to help prevent a skid even before it occurs by using a combination of individual-wheel braking, torque modulation and steering torque assistance. Headed to the track? The exclusive Sport mode setting adjusts the sensitivity of the system, raising the threshold before VDIM intervenes, and enabling you to push the vehicle to its limits.
Helping to dissipate the force of a collision, crumple zones in the front and rear are intentionally designed to compress at a controlled rate, helping protect occupants within the more rigid passenger compartment.
The front-passenger seat is designed to detect whether the seat is occupied by an adult or a child, or is vacant. In case the system detects a child or empty passenger seat, the system prevents the passenger’s front, side and knee airbags from being deployed. The front passenger’s airbag features two chambers, creating an indentation in the center impact area that helps to provide occupant protection in a severe frontal collision.
