FrontRunners: Rookie of the New Year

To the increasingly bustling sport-sedan party comes the 2013 Lexus GS 350 F (www.lexus.com), a car that is sure to steal glances from its European counterparts. The GS 350 F’s aggressive appearance distinguishes it from other Lexus models, and the car features enhancements that provide receptive handling and responsive—not brute—power. The sport-tuned suspension, the Dynamic Handling System (available only on the rear-wheel-drive model), and superior braking make the GS 350 F well equipped for curves. The 306 hp V-6 engine—paired with a 6-speed, paddle-shift automatic gearbox—delivers performance that is nearly as impressive as the optional 835-watt Mark Levinson sound system. The GS 350 F with rear-wheel drive is priced from $53,500. When equipped with all-wheel drive, the car has a starting price of $56,000.
