2018 Mercedes-Benz S 450 vs 2018 Lexus LS 500
The legacy of Mercedes-Benz is matched by few, but it’s still worth comparing to other luxury brands. Take Lexus, for example. The product of parent company Toyota, Lexus offers many of the same features and aesthetics as Toyota. There is only one Mercedes-Benz, however. Take a look at how it stacks up here as we compare the 2018 Mercedes-Benz S 450 vs 2018 Lexus LS 500.
There’s more power in the LS 500, but that’s merely because it comes with a bigger engine. When you dig deeper, you’ll find a few other areas where the S 450 comes out ahead in the performance segment. It has standard automatic load-leveling and an adaptive variable suspension, both features that are only optional in the LS 500. Take a look at some additional comparisons in the table below.
