2016 Lexus ES 300h vs. 2017 Volkswagen CC 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 Lexus ES 300h than the Volkswagen CC. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lexus ES 300h and the Volkswagen CC in the front seats.

Convenience
The Lexus ES 300h will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Volkswagen CC, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Lexus ES 300h is somewhat more expensive than the Volkswagen CC. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Lexus ES 300h is much higher than that for the Volkswagen CC.

Dimensions
The Lexus ES 300h is a little narrower than the Volkswagen CC, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Lexus ES 300h, which is slightly longer than the Volkswagen CC.

Drivetrain
The Lexus ES 300h has much less torque than the Volkswagen CC, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Lexus ES 300h has about the same turning radius as the Volkswagen CC, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus ES 300h is significantly less powerful than the Volkswagen CC. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lexus ES 300h and the Volkswagen CC. The Lexus ES 300h has less cargo capacity than the Volkswagen CC, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Lexus ES 300h than that of the Volkswagen CC.
