2014 Audi RS 7 vs. 2013 Lexus LS 600h Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Audi RS 7 than in the Lexus LS 600h, due to the Audi RS 7's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Lexus LS 600h will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi RS 7.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi RS 7 as you will with the Lexus LS 600h, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi RS 7 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lexus LS 600h. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi RS 7 and the Lexus LS 600h have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi RS 7 is a little wider than the Lexus LS 600h, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The Audi RS 7 is slightly shorter than the Lexus LS 600h, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Audi RS 7 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus LS 600h.

Handling
The Audi RS 7 has about the same turning radius as the Lexus LS 600h, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi RS 7 has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus LS 600h. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Audi RS 7 has less seating than the Lexus LS 600h, making the Lexus LS 600h the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Audi RS 7 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Lexus LS 600h.

Warranty
The Audi RS 7 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus LS 600h.
