2004 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S500 Rwd 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 7A)
I also have a new 2003 Lexus LX470 and
an old LS400. I guess I can compare
them pretty well here: 1. The S500 is
a noisy car during acceleration. The
Lexus is much quieter. 2. The
GPS/Audio system on the S500
sucks; it's very hard to operate
unless you remember all the details
and look at it while driving all the
time. The GPS/Audio on the LEXUS is
much easier to use and the touch-
screen on Lexus is intuitive and
easiser to use.
3. The audio system on S500 is not too
impressive. Lexus audio is better.
4. The road handling is much more
solid for the S500.
5. The exterior look of S500 is more
stylish than the LS430 even for the
new LS430 models.
Nice road handling, nice acceleration
Need a easy-to-use GPS/Audio system.
