2014 Lexus GX 460 vs. 2015 Mercedes-Benz M-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz M-Class than in the Lexus GX 460, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Mercedes-Benz M-Class offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus GX 460, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz M-Class requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Lexus GX 460, 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). Clearly, the Lexus GX 460 is a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Lexus GX 460 and the Mercedes-Benz M-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus GX 460 is much slimmer than the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Lexus GX 460 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz M-Class.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Lexus GX 460 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz M-Class.

Handling
The Lexus GX 460 has a smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the Lexus GX 460. The Lexus GX 460 has a little less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz M-Class.

Utility
The Lexus GX 460 offers greater seating capacity than the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Lexus GX 460 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Mercedes-Benz M-Class.

Warranty
