2013 Lexus GS 450h vs. 2015 Audi S4 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 GS 450h than the Audi S4. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi S4, the Lexus GS 450h may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Lexus GS 450h you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Audi S4, 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). The Lexus GS 450h is somewhat more expensive than the Audi S4. 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 450h and the Audi S4 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lexus GS 450h is about the same width as the Audi S4. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Lexus GS 450h, which is slightly longer than the Audi S4.

Drivetrain
The Lexus GS 450h has much less torque than the Audi S4, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Lexus GS 450h has a smaller turning radius than the Audi S4, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Lexus GS 450h has less horsepower than the Audi S4, 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 450h and the Audi S4. The Lexus GS 450h has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Audi S4.

Warranty
The Lexus GS 450h comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi S4.
