2016 Lexus IS 350 vs. 2017 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
The Audi A6 requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Lexus IS 350, 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). Based on MSRP, the Lexus IS 350 is clearly a better financial choice over the Audi A6. 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 350 and the Audi A6 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus IS 350 is much slimmer than the Audi A6, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Lexus IS 350, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Audi A6.

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
The Lexus IS 350 has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Audi A6, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Lexus IS 350 has less horsepower than the Audi A6, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lexus IS 350 and the Audi A6. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Lexus IS 350 as you will in the Audi A6.

Warranty
The Lexus IS 350 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi A6.
