2016 Lexus GS 450h vs. 2017 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
The Lexus GS 450h will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Dimensions
The Lexus GS 450h is a little narrower than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. 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
With its lower torque, the Lexus GS 450h doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Handling
The Lexus GS 450h has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus GS 450h is somewhat more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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.
