2013 Audi S8 vs. 2013 Lexus LS 600h 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 LS 600h. The Lexus LS 600h will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi S8.

Convenience
The Audi S8 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Lexus LS 600h, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi S8 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 S8 and the Lexus LS 600h have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi S8 is much wider than the Lexus LS 600h, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Audi S8 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus LS 600h.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi S8 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lexus LS 600h.

Handling
The Audi S8 has a larger turning radius than the Lexus LS 600h, making it slightly 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 LS 600h. 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 LS 600h. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Audi S8 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Lexus LS 600h.

Warranty
The Audi S8 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus LS 600h.
