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

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class than the Lexus LS 460, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lexus LS 460 and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class in the front seats.

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 S-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). Based on MSRP, the Lexus LS 460 is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz S-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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

Dimensions
The Lexus LS 460 is a little narrower than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Lexus LS 460 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

Drivetrain
The Lexus LS 460 has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Lexus LS 460 has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

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