2017 Lexus GS 350 vs. 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Lexus GS 350 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the Lexus GS 350 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Lexus GS 350, 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 GS 350 is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Lexus GS 350 will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Dimensions
The Lexus GS 350 is a little narrower than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Lexus GS 350 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Lexus GS 350 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Lexus GS 350 has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lexus GS 350 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Lexus GS 350 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
