2014 Lexus IS 350 vs. 2015 Audi A6 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A6 than the Lexus IS 350, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Lexus IS 350 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A6.

Convenience

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).

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Lexus IS 350 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Audi A6.

Handling

Utility
