Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Audi A6 than in the Lexus ES 250, due to the Audi A6's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Audi A6 and the Lexus ES 250 in the front seats.

Convenience
The Audi A6 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Lexus ES 250, 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 Audi A6 is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus ES 250.

Dimensions
The Audi A6 is a little wider than the Lexus ES 250, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Audi A6 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus ES 250.

Handling
The Audi A6 has a larger turning radius than the Lexus ES 250, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Audi A6 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus ES 250.
