2014 Hyundai Azera vs. 2014 Lexus IS 250 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 Hyundai Azera than the Lexus IS 250. The Hyundai Azera will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus IS 250.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Azera as you will with the Lexus IS 250, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 Hyundai Azera will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lexus IS 250. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Hyundai Azera and the Lexus IS 250 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Azera is much wider than the Lexus IS 250, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Hyundai Azera, which is slightly longer than the Lexus IS 250.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Hyundai Azera does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus IS 250.

Handling
The Hyundai Azera has a larger turning radius than the Lexus IS 250, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Azera has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus IS 250. 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 Hyundai Azera and the Lexus IS 250. The Hyundai Azera has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Lexus IS 250.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Azera than that of the Lexus IS 250.
