2013 Lexus IS-F vs. 2014 Lexus GS 350 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus GS 350 than the Lexus IS-F, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lexus IS-F and the Lexus GS 350 in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Lexus GS 350 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Lexus IS-F, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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-F will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Lexus GS 350, which has a much lower MSRP. 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-F and the Lexus GS 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lexus IS-F is a little narrower than the Lexus GS 350, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Lexus IS-F is slightly shorter than the Lexus GS 350, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Lexus IS-F does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus GS 350.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus IS-F has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus GS 350. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Lexus IS-F has less seating than the Lexus GS 350, making the Lexus GS 350 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Lexus IS-F has less cargo capacity than the Lexus GS 350, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Lexus IS-F comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus GS 350.
