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 LS 500 than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lexus LS 500 and the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63 in the front seats.
