The GS, a mainstay of Lexus's lineup since 1993, is a large sedan with seating up to 5. Having better than average EPA (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and pollution. Having more than average horsepower for its class, the GS packs some oomph. Strong on technology, it has offered Apple CarPlay since 2019. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it can easily bypass mud and snow. Lexus offers a 4-year, 50,000-mile basic warranty, and a 6-year, 70,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

The 2015 Lexus GS is below average compared to all vehicles.

Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2015 Lexus GS has a score of 76, implying a 0.047% chance of driver death (4.2% chance of injury). If equipped with optional advanced driver safety features, the chance of death falls to 0.046%, and the chance of injury falls to 4.1%.

We estimate that the 2015 Lexus GS has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0472% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 5.3876%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0472% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 5.3876% chance of being injured.
