Lexus GS 350 video review: Is the Lexus sporty or posh?

Give us four minutes and we'll give you the scoop.

Is the Lexus GS 350 a sports sedan or a luxury sedan?

In other words, was Lexus able to combine oil and water or (in automotive terms) sports and luxury?

Traditionally all the characteristics that make for a great sports car make for a lousy luxury car, and of course all of the characteristics that make a great luxury car make for a poor sports car.

So…is the Lexus GS 350 sporty or posh?

We put the car to the test to find out.
