The V6 is capable of pushing the GS from 0-100km/h (62mph) in 8.6 seconds and on to a top speed of 230km/h (143mph). The 2.5-liter is mated to a '6 Super ECT' close-ratio 6-speed automatic transmission with a sequential manual shifting mode.

Despite being the least powerful model of the range, the GS 250 is available with the optional F Sport Package that adds cosmetic touches like a fresh bumper and 19-inch alloys, plus a sportier suspension setup.
