2013 Lexus GS 450h vs. 2014 Lexus GS 350 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Lexus GS 450h offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lexus GS 350 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lexus GS 450h and the Lexus GS 350 in the front seats.

Convenience
The Lexus GS 450h will require fewer stops at 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 450h is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus GS 350. 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 Lexus GS 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lexus GS 450h is about the same width as the Lexus GS 350. When looking at overall length, the Lexus GS 450h takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus GS 350.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Lexus GS 450h doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lexus GS 350.

Handling
The Lexus GS 450h has about the same turning radius as the Lexus GS 350, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Lexus GS 450h has less horsepower than the Lexus GS 350, 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 Lexus GS 350. The Lexus GS 450h has less cargo capacity than the Lexus GS 350, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Lexus GS 450h comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus GS 350.
