2013 Lexus LS 600h vs. 2013 Lexus IS-F Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus LS 600h than the Lexus IS-F. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus IS-F, the Lexus LS 600h may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Lexus LS 600h you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lexus IS-F, due to its larger tank size and better 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 Lexus IS-F, 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 Lexus IS-F have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus LS 600h is much wider than the Lexus IS-F, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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 Lexus IS-F.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Lexus LS 600h transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lexus IS-F.

Handling
The Lexus LS 600h has a significantly larger turning radius than the Lexus IS-F, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Lexus LS 600h has less horsepower than the Lexus IS-F, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The Lexus LS 600h offers greater seating capacity than the Lexus IS-F, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Lexus LS 600h has significantly less cargo room than the Lexus IS-F, 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 Lexus IS-F.
