2013 Lexus LS 600h vs. 2015 Audi A8 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A8 than the Lexus LS 600h, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Lexus LS 600h will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A8.

Convenience
With the Audi A8 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Lexus LS 600h, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 600h will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Audi A8, 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 600h and the Audi A8 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus LS 600h is much slimmer than the Audi A8, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Lexus LS 600h takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Audi A8.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Lexus LS 600h doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Audi A8.

Handling
The Lexus LS 600h has a smaller turning radius than the Audi A8, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Lexus LS 600h has less horsepower than the Audi A8, 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 600h and the Audi A8. The Lexus LS 600h has significantly less cargo room than the Audi A8, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Lexus LS 600h comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi A8.
