2013 Lexus GS 450h vs. 2014 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Lexus GS 450h 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 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 about the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus GS 450h is significantly less powerful than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

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 significantly less cargo room than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

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