2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. 2013 Lexus IS-F Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Lexus IS-F, 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 Mercedes-Benz S-Class 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 Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the Lexus IS-F have similar Destination Charges.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus IS-F. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Warranty
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus IS-F.
