2016 Audi S6 vs. 2016 Lexus GS 450h Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi S6 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lexus GS 450h with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Lexus GS 450h will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi S6.

Convenience
The Lexus GS 450h requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Audi S6, making it more convenient to drive.

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). The Audi S6 is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus GS 450h. 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 S6 and the Lexus GS 450h have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi S6 is a little wider than the Lexus GS 450h, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Audi S6 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus GS 450h.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Audi S6 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus GS 450h.

Handling
The Audi S6 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Lexus GS 450h, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi S6 has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus GS 450h. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi S6 and the Lexus GS 450h. The Audi S6 has less cargo capacity than the Lexus GS 450h, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Audi S6 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus GS 450h.
