2015 Audi S4 vs. 2014 Lexus GS 350 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus GS 350 than the Audi S4, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi S4, drivers may find the Lexus GS 350 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Lexus GS 350 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Audi S4, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). Whether you pick the Audi S4 or the Lexus GS 350, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 S4 and the Lexus GS 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi S4 is about the same width as the Lexus GS 350. The Audi S4 is slightly shorter than the Lexus GS 350, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi S4 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lexus GS 350.

Handling
The Audi S4 has about the same turning radius as the Lexus GS 350, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi S4 is somewhat more powerful than the Lexus GS 350.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi S4 and the Lexus GS 350. The Audi S4 has less cargo capacity than the Lexus GS 350, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Audi S4 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus GS 350.
