2016 Chevrolet SS vs. 2016 Lexus GS 350 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 Chevrolet SS than the Lexus GS 350. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet SS and the Lexus GS 350 in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Lexus GS 350 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet SS, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet SS will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lexus GS 350. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet SS and the Lexus GS 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet SS is much wider than the Lexus GS 350, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet SS takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus GS 350.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet SS does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus GS 350.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet SS has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus GS 350. 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 Chevrolet SS and the Lexus GS 350. The Chevrolet SS has less cargo capacity than the Lexus GS 350, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet SS is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Lexus GS 350.
