2014 Lexus LS 460 vs. 2015 Kia K900 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Lexus LS 460 than in the Kia K900, due to the Lexus LS 460's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Kia K900 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus LS 460.

Convenience
The Lexus LS 460 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Kia K900, 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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Kia K900, 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 LS 460 and the Kia K900 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lexus LS 460 is a little narrower than the Kia K900, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Lexus LS 460, which is slightly longer than the Kia K900.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Lexus LS 460 and the Kia K900 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Lexus LS 460 has a smaller turning radius than the Kia K900, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Lexus LS 460 has less horsepower than the Kia K900, 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 Kia K900. The Lexus LS 460 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Kia K900.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Lexus LS 460 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia K900.
