Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln Continental than the Lexus GS 350, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Lincoln Continental will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus GS 350.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus GS 350 as you will with the Lincoln Continental, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Lexus GS 350 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lincoln Continental. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Lexus GS 350 and the Lincoln Continental have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus GS 350 is much slimmer than the Lincoln Continental, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Lexus GS 350 is slightly shorter than the Lincoln Continental, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Lexus GS 350 has much less torque than the Lincoln Continental, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Lexus GS 350 has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Lincoln Continental, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Lexus GS 350 has less horsepower than the Lincoln Continental, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lexus GS 350 and the Lincoln Continental. The Lexus GS 350 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Lincoln Continental.

Warranty
The Lexus GS 350 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln Continental.
