2016 Lexus RX 450h vs. 2015 Nissan Armada Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Armada than in the Lexus RX 450h, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Lexus RX 450h and the Nissan Armada.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus RX 450h as you will with the Nissan Armada, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a 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 RX 450h is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Armada. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Lexus RX 450h and the Nissan Armada have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus RX 450h is much slimmer than the Nissan Armada, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Lexus RX 450h, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Nissan Armada.

Drivetrain
The Lexus RX 450h has much lower torque than the Nissan Armada, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Lexus RX 450h seats a lot fewer people than the Nissan Armada. The Lexus RX 450h has significantly less cargo capacity than the Nissan Armada.
