Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A6 than the Lexus IS 350. The Lexus IS 350 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A6.

Convenience
With the Audi A6 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lexus IS 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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Lexus IS 350, which has a much lower MSRP.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A6 is much wider than the Lexus IS 350, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi A6, which is slightly longer than the Lexus IS 350.

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

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

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

Utility
