2015 BMW 740 vs. 2014 Lexus LS 460 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 LS 460. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW 740 and the Lexus LS 460 in the front seats.

Convenience
The BMW 740 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Lexus LS 460, 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). Whether you pick the BMW 740 or the Lexus LS 460, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 and the Lexus LS 460 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 740 is a little wider than the Lexus LS 460, 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 BMW 740 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus LS 460.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 740 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lexus LS 460.

Handling
The BMW 740 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
The BMW 740 has less horsepower than the Lexus LS 460, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 740 and the Lexus LS 460. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the BMW 740 as you will in the Lexus LS 460.

Warranty
The BMW 740 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus LS 460.
