2013 Infiniti M56 vs. 2013 Lexus GS 450h Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Infiniti M56 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lexus GS 450h with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Infiniti M56 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus GS 450h.

Convenience
With the Lexus GS 450h you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Infiniti M56, 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). The Infiniti M56 is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus GS 450h. 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 M56 and the Lexus GS 450h have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Infiniti M56 is about the same width as the Lexus GS 450h. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Infiniti M56, which is slightly longer than the Lexus GS 450h.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Infiniti M56 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus GS 450h.

Handling
The Infiniti M56 has about the same turning radius as the Lexus GS 450h, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Infiniti M56 has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus GS 450h. 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 Infiniti M56 and the Lexus GS 450h. The Infiniti M56 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Lexus GS 450h.

Warranty
The basic warranty for the Infiniti M56 offers a little more coverage than the basic warranty of the Lexus GS 450h in terms of months/miles.
