Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Audi A6 than in the Lexus ES 350, 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 350 in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Audi A6 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lexus ES 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 Audi A6 is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus ES 350.

Dimensions
The Audi A6 is a little wider than the Lexus ES 350, 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 350.

Handling
The Audi A6 has a larger turning radius than the Lexus ES 350, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Audi A6 has less horsepower than the Lexus ES 350, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Audi A6 and the Lexus ES 350 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

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 350.
