2015 Lexus IS 250 vs. 2014 Hyundai Azera Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Azera than the Lexus IS 250, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Hyundai Azera will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus IS 250.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus IS 250 as you will with the Hyundai Azera, 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). The Lexus IS 250 is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Azera. 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 IS 250 and the Hyundai Azera have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus IS 250 is much slimmer than the Hyundai Azera, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Lexus IS 250, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Hyundai Azera.

Drivetrain
The Lexus IS 250 has much less torque than the Hyundai Azera, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Lexus IS 250 has a smaller turning radius than the Hyundai Azera, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus IS 250 is significantly less powerful than the Hyundai Azera. 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 IS 250 and the Hyundai Azera. The Lexus IS 250 has less cargo capacity than the Hyundai Azera, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
