2016 Lexus LS 460 vs. 2016 Lexus GS 450h Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Lexus LS 460 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lexus GS 450h with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus GS 450h, the Lexus LS 460 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Lexus GS 450h requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Lexus LS 460, 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 Lexus GS 450h. 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 Lexus GS 450h have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lexus LS 460 is a little wider than the Lexus GS 450h, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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 Lexus GS 450h.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Lexus LS 460 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus GS 450h.

Handling
The Lexus LS 460 has about the same turning radius as the Lexus GS 450h, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus LS 460 has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus GS 450h. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lexus LS 460 and the Lexus GS 450h. The Lexus LS 460 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Lexus GS 450h.

Warranty
The Lexus LS 460 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus GS 450h.
