Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Audi A6 than in the Lexus ES 300h, 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 300h in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi A6 as you will with the Lexus ES 300h, as they get the same number of miles per 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). The Audi A6 is somewhat more expensive 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. The Audi A6 and the Lexus ES 300h have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi A6 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. When looking at overall length, the Audi A6 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus ES 300h.

Drivetrain
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 300h.

Handling
The Audi A6 has a smaller turning radius than the Lexus ES 300h, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A6 has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus ES 300h. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A6 and the Lexus ES 300h. The Audi A6 has significantly less cargo room than the Lexus ES 300h, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Audi A6 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus ES 300h.
