2016 Lexus GS 450h vs. 2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Lexus GS 450h 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 450h may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus GS 450h as you will with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). Whether you pick the Lexus GS 450h or the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

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

Drivetrain
The Lexus GS 450h 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 450h 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 450h 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 450h and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The Lexus GS 450h has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Warranty
The Lexus GS 450h comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
