The 2013 Lexus GS 450h we see here in the video represents the automaker’s idea of how a mid-size luxury sedan should be like.

While not too flamboyant, the GS’ interior gives you a peaceful feeling, a Zen mode induced by the comfortable seats, spaciousness, nice materials and shapes, as well as the overall quietness of the car’s powertrain that will make you think twice about whether or not you’ve pressed the Star button. It seems that the car wants you to put on a suit and drive elegantly, while listening to a dub playlist.

However, if you want some adrenaline, you can put it in Sport mode, and the 3.5-liter V6 hybrid will transfer its 300 hp to the wheels so fast, that you will forget you are in a sedan, while the Mark Levinson sound system will thrill your ears with perfect sound quality.
