2015 Audi S6 vs. 2014 Lexus LS 460 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi S6 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lexus LS 460 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Lexus LS 460 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi S6.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi S6 as you will with the Lexus LS 460, 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 S6 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lexus LS 460. 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 LS 460 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi S6 is about the same width as the Lexus LS 460. If you go with the Audi S6, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Lexus LS 460.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi S6 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lexus LS 460.

Handling
The Audi S6 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Lexus LS 460, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi S6 is somewhat more powerful than the Lexus LS 460.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi S6 and the Lexus LS 460. The Audi S6 has significantly less cargo room than the Lexus LS 460, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Audi S6 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus LS 460.
