2014 BMW M5 vs. 2013 Lexus LS 600h Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The BMW M5 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lexus LS 600h with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW M5 and the Lexus LS 600h in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Lexus LS 600h you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the BMW M5, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). Based on MSRP, the BMW M5 is clearly a better financial choice over 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 BMW M5 and the Lexus LS 600h have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW M5 is about the same width as the Lexus LS 600h. If you go with the BMW M5, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Lexus LS 600h.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW M5 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lexus LS 600h.

Handling
The BMW M5 has about the same turning radius as the Lexus LS 600h, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW M5 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 BMW M5 and the Lexus LS 600h. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW M5 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Lexus LS 600h.

Warranty
The BMW M5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus LS 600h.
