2020 Lexus GS Interior and Cargo

Lexus GS Interior & Cargo Rating

2020 GS Interior

Lexus has become synonymous with luxurious and refined interior spaces, so it comes as somewhat of a disappointment to reveal that the interior of the 2020 GS isn't class-leading, not by a long shot. The first thing you'll notice is its basic and dated design and cheap-feeling materials. The space might be roomy, and forward visibility is excellent, but Mercedes-Benz and Audi do a much better job of creating a premium sense of occasion. Standard interior features for 2020 include push-button start, a power tilt-and-telescopic steering column, leather-trimmed heated and ventilated front seats with 10-way power adjustment. Keeping things temperate is a dual-zone automatic climate control system, and you also get a backup camera system and driver assistance features such as pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, and lane-keep assist. F Sport models add LFA-inspired instrumentation, sporty front seats with enhanced bolsters and a 16-way power-adjustable driver's seat.

Seating and Interior Space

The interior of the GS feels roomy once you get inside, and is helped along by the moonroof and large windows on either side of the cabin, but when measured, is actually pretty average for its class. The GS will seat five adult passengers in comfort, despite not offering tons of headspace. That being said, headspace measures 38 inches in the front, and 37.8 inches in the rear. Legroom in the front is a spacious 42.3 inches, but that number drops quite significantly in the back, here occupants only get 36.8 inches of space. Shoulder room is measured at 57.3/55.7 inches front to back, and the hiproom is 54.5/54.1 inches front to rear. It's easy to find a comfortable perch for the driver, and visibility is decent when you're in position. Large door apertures and an ideal seating height also make ingress and egress easy.

Interior Colors and Materials

New owners get a ton of seat upholstery and interior trim options, even in base form. On the GS, there are three options, namely Chateau leather with Gray Sapele wood and Aluminum, Flaxen leather with Open-Pore Brown Walnut, or Black leather with Gray Sapele wood and Aluminum trim. The Premium Package, which comes standard on GS AWD models, allows you to go for the more exclusive Flaxen Nuluxe upholstery trim. White and black contrasting leather is also an option on the GS, and GS F Sport cars gain proprietary rights to the Rioja Red, and Black leather with white perforations. F Sport models also feature a black headliner, Naguri Aluminum trim and aluminum sport pedals.

2020 GS Trunk and Cargo Space

Executive sedans are most often used as Uber Black and business class shuttles for hotels and casinos, so trunk capacity plays a significant role: airport luggage and hog-tied casino bosses need to be able to fit in the back without having to force the trunk lid shut. The 2020 GS delivers the goods with an 18.4 cubic foot trunk that offers a wide and flat opening, perfect for stashing executive-level stuff. The GS completely dominated the Audi A6's 13.7 cubic feet, and the BMW 5 Series' capacious 18.7 cubic feet of trunk space, but there is one drawback: the GS' rear bench doesn't fold flat, so longer items will have to be fixed to the roof. On the inside, there's enough space to comfortably store five adults' small items. In the front, you get a good-sized glovebox and a large center storage bin. The front door pockets are also generous, and there's a hidden storage compartment in front of the shifter.

2020 GS Infotainment and Features


One of the greatest attributes of the 2020 Lexus GS is its wide array of standard features, both inside and out of the car, and the fact that the F Sport mainly adds suspension, wheel, and brake upgrades as well as appearance touches, so the GS in base form gets pretty much every standard feature on offer. From the outside, the GS offers standard LED headlamps and LED daytime running lights, a power rear sunshade, power-folding auto-dimming outside mirrors, and a power moonroof. The F Sport adds performance adaptive variable suspension and larger brake disks and calipers, as well as an F Sport unique front bumper, upper and lower grille inserts, rear valance, and rear spoiler. Inside, the GS is packed with premium features such as leather upholstery, heated 10-way power-adjustable front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, as well as driver assistance features such as adaptive cruise control, pedestrian detection and lane-keep assist. F Sport models also feature a drive mode select system with Sport Plus mode and LFA-inspired instrumentation.


Both the GS base model and F Sport share a 12.3-inch high-resolution split-screen

multimedia display which displays gorgeously crisp images and seamless menu interchanges, but for those not used to the Lexus Remote Touch Interface will need to spend some time learning the system, as using the mouse-pointer style navigation can get a bit frustrating for first-time users. Both trim levels also get a standard 12-speaker premium sound system with Bluetooth and USB smartphone connectivity and integrated navigation. Third-party services include traffic and weather updates via HD Radio, Siri Eyes Free, as well as Amazon Alexa

and Google Assistant compatibility. The Lexus Enform suite of infotainment and navigation services includes Safety Connect and Service Connect, as well as Destination Assist.

Optional features include a head-up display and a 17-speaker Mark Levinson premium audio system. One of our major issues with this system is the lack of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration.
