2013 Infiniti M35h vs. 2013 Lexus IS-F 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 Infiniti M35h than the Lexus IS-F. The Infiniti M35h will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus IS-F.

Convenience
With the Infiniti M35h you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lexus IS-F, due to its larger tank size and better 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 Infiniti M35h will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lexus IS-F. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Infiniti M35h and the Lexus IS-F have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Infiniti M35h is a little wider than the Lexus IS-F, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Infiniti M35h, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Lexus IS-F.

Drivetrain
The Infiniti M35h has much less torque than the Lexus IS-F, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Infiniti M35h has a larger turning radius than the Lexus IS-F, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Infiniti M35h is significantly less powerful than the Lexus IS-F. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Infiniti M35h offers greater seating capacity than the Lexus IS-F, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Infiniti M35h has less cargo capacity than the Lexus IS-F, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty for the Infiniti M35h offers a little more coverage than the basic warranty of the Lexus IS-F in terms of months/miles.
