If it’s refinement you’re after, the GS430 boasts tons, including leather-trimmed and heated seats, an engine start/stop switch and Bluetooth wireless connectivity. The GS430 is powered by a 300 horsepower 4.3-liter V8 with a 6-speed automatic transmission and 325 lbs.-ft of torque.

The 2006 Lexus GS430 is the top of the line in the GS range. Upgrading the V-6 engine of the Lexus GS 330 to a powerful V-8, the Lexus GS430 is a fun way to get around. The acceleration is brilliant, and the handling is a real treat. Unfortunately, some of the fun is taken away by the over compensation of the stability control system, but this can be forgiven when driving down a long stretch in the car’s luxurious interior. The GS430’s standard features put it way above the competition for the price.
The interior of the 2006 Lexus GS430 is very roomy with plenty of legroom for the driver and passengers. Tall and large folks will feel quite welcome inside the Lexus GS430. Trunk and cargo space is pretty good for a sedan, if not generous.
