2013 Lexus LS 600h vs. 2013 BMW ActiveHybrid 740 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW ActiveHybrid 740 than the Lexus LS 600h, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lexus LS 600h and the BMW ActiveHybrid 740 in the front seats.

Convenience
The BMW ActiveHybrid 740 requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Lexus LS 600h, making it more convenient to drive.

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 ActiveHybrid 740, 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 BMW ActiveHybrid 740 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lexus LS 600h is a little narrower than the BMW ActiveHybrid 740, 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 600h takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW ActiveHybrid 740.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Lexus LS 600h transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the BMW ActiveHybrid 740.

Handling

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 ActiveHybrid 740. The Lexus LS 600h has significantly less cargo room than the BMW ActiveHybrid 740, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
