2015 BMW 740 vs. 2013 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 BMW 740 than the Lexus GS 450h. The BMW 740 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus GS 450h.

Convenience

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 BMW 740 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 BMW 740 will cost more in transportation costs than the Lexus GS 450h.

Since the BMW 740 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 BMW 740, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Lexus GS 450h.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW 740 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lexus GS 450h.
