2016 Lexus LS 460 vs. 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Lexus LS 460 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Lexus LS 460 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus LS 460 as you will with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Dimensions
The Lexus LS 460 is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Handling
The Lexus LS 460 has a smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus LS 460 has a much more powerful engine than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Lexus LS 460 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Warranty
The Lexus LS 460 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
