Mercedes S Class vs LS 400
By james r on
Vehicle1999 Lexus LS 400 4dr Sedan
ReviewThe Mercedes seats are bigger.You can't get the Lexus seat to go parallel like the mercedes seat.The Lexus will reach 130 like you are going 90 but the mercedes feels safer and you don't feel a detached from the road. I like the Mercedes larger steering wheel which makes a real difference at hgh speeds. the LS 400 is virtually maintenance free The interior of S class is much nicer.The cheap sun visors of the LS 400 and head linner are pretty sorry when you look at Merceds even 20yrs.ago The fuel economy in the Lexus is averaging 18-19mpg/city 24-26.9 hwy @75- 85mph The omputer of the Lexus is always off 1-1.5mpg. I still want a newer S class class
Best FeaturesI like the quiet ride, good fuel economy on the hwy.and very inexpensive repairs and maintenance.
Worst FeaturesThe seats are too small compared to the Mercedes ie the bottom seat needs to be a couple inches longer. The lumbar support is not adjustable ie up and down like Mercedes The rear windows don't go all the way down the way down. The rear leg room needs at least 3-6 more inches
