The Lexus GS gives more peace of mind at no extra cost, featuring more standard safety and driver assistance features like Lane Keeping Assist, All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and Intelligent High Beams. The most comprehensive safety system offered on the GS, Lexus Safety System+ is designed to help pave the way to a world with fewer collisions and better informed drivers. Some of the integrated suite of advanced active safety equipment include: 

Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection: This system is engineered to help detect a vehicle or a pedestrian in the path of your Lexus under certain conditions. If the driver does not brake in time, the system is designed to automatically begin braking before impact, and in some cases, can even brake the vehicle to a stop. 

Lane Departure Alert: This system uses a high-resolution camera to monitor visible lane markings and determine the vehicle's position within a lane. 

All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control: This system uses radar and camera technology to help you maintain a preset speed and following distance from the vehicle ahead. 

Intelligent High Beams: Intelligent High Beams offer added lighting to help keep you focused on the road and to provide greater visibility for you as well as other drivers. 


With about an inch of additional front legroom and 5.3 cubic feet more cargo room, the GS offers even more space for your legs and your luggage! Throughput the GS, craftsmanship is transformed into artistry. On the dash and doors, eye-catching available Gray Sapele wood is among the expertly crafted trims that set the tone. Using laser-etching technology, the process reveals aluminum highlights behind the polished wood veneer.  When compared to the Mercedes-Benz E 450, it's easy to see how the GS breaks free from traditional luxury sedan design expectations with bold, dramatic lines and eye-catching details.


When it comes to warranties, Lexus has you covered. The GS 350 offers a reassuring, six-year or 70,000-mile powertrain warranty for the engine and driveline, while the E 450 has a shorter, four-year or 50,000-mile powertrain warranty.

After taking all of these things into account, it's clear that the 2020 GS 350 outshines the 2020 Mercedes-Benz E 450.
