2014 Volkswagen CC vs. 2014 Lexus ES 300h Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus ES 300h than the Volkswagen CC, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Volkswagen CC and the Lexus ES 300h in the front seats.

Convenience
The Lexus ES 300h requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Volkswagen CC, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Volkswagen CC will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lexus ES 300h. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Volkswagen CC will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Lexus ES 300h.

Dimensions
The Volkswagen CC is a little wider than the Lexus ES 300h, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The Volkswagen CC is slightly shorter than the Lexus ES 300h, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Volkswagen CC transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lexus ES 300h.

Handling
The Volkswagen CC has about the same turning radius as the Lexus ES 300h, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Volkswagen CC is somewhat more powerful than the Lexus ES 300h.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Volkswagen CC and the Lexus ES 300h. The Volkswagen CC has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Lexus ES 300h.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Volkswagen CC is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Lexus ES 300h.
