2015 Lexus RX 450h vs. 2015 Toyota Sequoia Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Lexus RX 450h than the Toyota Sequoia. The Lexus RX 450h will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Sequoia.

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 Toyota Sequoia, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Lexus RX 450h will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Sequoia. 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 Toyota Sequoia have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus RX 450h is much slimmer than the Toyota Sequoia, 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 Toyota Sequoia.

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

Handling
The Lexus RX 450h has a larger turning radius than the Toyota Sequoia, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus RX 450h has a lot less horsepower than the Toyota Sequoia.

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

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Lexus RX 450h than that of the Toyota Sequoia.
