Mercedes S Class vs LS 400
By james r on


1999 Lexus LS 400 4dr Sedan


The 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

Best Features

I like the quiet ride, good fuel economy on the hwy.and very inexpensive repairs and maintenance.

Worst Features

The 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
