There are currently three models in the GS-6 range, dubbed ‘personas’: Standard, Luxury, and Sport. A fully electric model will follow later in 2021. All three models are powered by the same plug-in hybrid system, consisting of a 28 kWh battery pack and two rear-mounted electric motors. Under the hood, there’s a 1.5L turbo-triple gas engine, not connected to the drivetrain. It exists purely as a generator for the battery. The combined power output is 536 hp and 550 lb-ft of torque, but with the Performance Pack specification, another 100 lb-ft is made available.
The standard specification is similar across the three trims. From the base model, you get 21-inch alloy wheels, only two paint options, chrome exterior trim, and LED headlights. Inside, the heated seats are power-adjustable, the driver gets a memory function, and there’s dual-zone climate control. A 10.2-inch touchscreen handles infotainment and all other controls, with an eight-speaker sound system. Safety and convenience are bolstered further by lane departure warning, forward collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, park sensors, a surround-view camera, and rain-sensing wipers.
The Luxury adds greater levels of customization with more paint and interior options and standard Lace Oak wood inserts.
In addition to extra torque, Sport models come with bigger 22-inch alloy wheels. The Blackout Package is also standard on this model, as is the full carbon fiber trim package and interior carbon fiber. Finally, the Sport gets standard cross-drilled brake discs, which are an optional extra on the standard Luxury model.
