The new Lexus GS450h has very few differences from other cars of the GS series, for example, the hybrid version can be identified by the inscription “Hybrid” on the sides and by alloy wheels made according to a special sketch.

At Russian sites, hybrid GS450h imported from the United States are not common. Given the presence of a hybrid drive, it is advisable to conduct a comprehensive diagnosis and check the status of the power plant before purchasing (whether the battery is at the “dying” stage and if there are any problems with the internal combustion engine).
