2014 Lexus LS 460 vs. 2015 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.

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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class. 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lexus LS 460 is a little wider than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Lexus LS 460 transmits a bit more 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 is somewhat more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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. The Lexus LS 460 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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