2015 Lexus GS 350 vs. 2016 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
With the Mercedes-Benz E-Class you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Lexus GS 350, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Lexus GS 350 will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lexus GS 350 is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. 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
The Lexus GS 350 has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Lexus GS 350 has a smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Lexus GS 350 has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

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. The Lexus GS 350 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Warranty
The Lexus GS 350 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
