Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus GS 350 than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, the Lexus GS 350 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

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 Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, 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 Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43. 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 Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lexus GS 350 is a little wider than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Lexus GS 350, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.

Drivetrain
The Lexus GS 350 has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, 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 Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Lexus GS 350 has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, 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 Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Lexus GS 350 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.

Warranty
The Lexus GS 350 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.
