2013 Lexus LS 600h vs. 2014 BMW 550 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Lexus LS 600h offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the BMW 550. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lexus LS 600h and the BMW 550 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus LS 600h as you will with the BMW 550, 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 600h will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 550, 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. In this case, the Lexus LS 600h will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the BMW 550.

Dimensions
The Lexus LS 600h is about the same width as the BMW 550. If you go with the Lexus LS 600h, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the BMW 550.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Lexus LS 600h doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW 550.

Handling
The Lexus LS 600h has about the same turning radius as the BMW 550, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Lexus LS 600h has less horsepower than the BMW 550, 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 BMW 550. The Lexus LS 600h has significantly less cargo room than the BMW 550, 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 BMW 550.
