2016 Audi S8 vs. 2016 Lexus GS 450h Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi S8 than the Lexus GS 450h. The Lexus GS 450h will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi S8.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi S8 as you will with the Lexus GS 450h, 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). The Audi S8 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Lexus GS 450h, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 S8 and the Lexus GS 450h have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi S8 is much wider than the Lexus GS 450h, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Audi S8, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Lexus GS 450h.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Audi S8 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus GS 450h.

Handling
The Audi S8 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 S8 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 S8 and the Lexus GS 450h. The Audi S8 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 S8 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus GS 450h.
