2014 Lexus LS 460 vs. 2014 BMW 550 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Lexus LS 460 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the BMW 550. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lexus LS 460 and the BMW 550 in the front seats.

Convenience
The Lexus LS 460 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the BMW 550, 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). The Lexus LS 460 is somewhat more expensive than the BMW 550. 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 LS 460 and the BMW 550 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lexus LS 460 is about the same width as the BMW 550. If you go with the Lexus LS 460, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the BMW 550.

Drivetrain
The Lexus LS 460 has much less torque than the BMW 550, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Lexus LS 460 has a significantly smaller turning radius than the BMW 550, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Lexus LS 460 has less horsepower than the BMW 550, 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 LS 460 and the BMW 550. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Lexus LS 460 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the BMW 550.

Warranty
The Lexus LS 460 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 550.
