2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2016 Lexus GS 350 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lexus GS 350 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, drivers may find the Lexus GS 350 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz E-Class you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lexus GS 350, 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Lexus GS 350, 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the Lexus GS 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is about the same width as the Lexus GS 350. When looking at overall length, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus GS 350.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lexus GS 350.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has a larger turning radius than the Lexus GS 350, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is somewhat more powerful than the Lexus GS 350.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the Lexus GS 350. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has significantly less cargo room than the Lexus GS 350, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
