Visit Lexus for more information on the Lexus GS 430.

This luxury sedan from Lexus contains a powerful 4.3-litre V8 engine that offers a stress-free ride. With its superior design and build, and focus on comfort-adding details, the 2003 Lexus GS 430 is certain to capture the attention of savvy consumers, especially since it is offered at a price that is unbeatable in its class.

Available Models
The 2003 Lexus GS 430 is available in one feature-loaded model. This car is a 4-door sedan with 5-speed automatic transmission.

Interior Features
Inside the 2003 Lexus GS 430, the emphasis is on quality and comfort. Leather upholstery is standard, and both the front and back seats offer a considerable amount of space. Passengers can access the rear seat without trouble, and leave it just as easily. There is a memory system that stores settings for the driver seat, steering wheel, and mirrors. Heated seats are standard, as is an AM/FM/cassette with an in-dash 6-disc CD changer.

Other standard interior features offered on the Lexus GS 430 include air conditioning with automatic dual-zone climate controls, 10-way power bucket seats with power lumbar adjustment for both the driver seat and front passenger seat, remote keyless entry, and power door locks and windows. There is also a power tilt/telescopic leather-wrapped steering wheel, a compass, a universal garage-door opener, cruise control, and an interior air filter.

On the GS 430, a navigation system is an option, as is a Mark Levinson radio system.

Exterior Features
High-intensity discharge headlights that turn on and off automatically are a standard exterior feature on this luxury sedan. A power sunroof is standard, as are alloy wheels. The standard wheels are 16-inch but Lexus is offering the option of 17-inch wheels with a special seven-spoke design on the Lexus GS 430. For 2003, the manufacturer has also added three new exterior colors to further entice customers.

The performance of the 2003 Lexus GS 430 rivals that of a sports car; it produces 300 hp at 5600 rpm, and 325lbs-ft of torque at 3400 rpm. Capable of achieving 0-60 mph in 5.8 seconds, it offers great fuel economy for this level of acceleration: 17/21mpg (city/highway). It is built with a 5-speed automatic transmission, and a manual shift capability that contributes to its precise cornering, and overall exemplary handling.

Safety and Security
Standard safety features on the Lexus GS 430 include dual front airbags, front side airbags, and front curtain side airbags, as well as 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, and an anti-skid system. A theft-deterrent system is of course standard on this sedan as well.
