Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Armada than in the Lexus GX 460, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan Armada will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus GX 460.

Convenience
