Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A8 than the Lexus LS 460. The Lexus LS 460 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A8.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi A8 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lexus LS 460.
