Compare The New 2020 Audi A7 vs 2020 Lexus LS Models

You just can't imitate the luxurious comfort, precision performance and stunning refinement of a German engineered full-size sedan. There's no finer way to roll up to the spot, from the country club to the nightclub to the wholesale retail club. Toyota's upmarket brand Lexus offers the 2020 Lexus LS for buyers in this segment, but it costs a whole lot more than the 2020 Audi A7. What's more, the Audi A7 provides greater luxury, superior versatility and iconic Audi style that's second to none. Discover why the 2020 Audi A7 is a better fit for your life than its rival from Lexus below.

Audi A7 Hatchback

DESIGN: 2020 Audi A7 vs. 2020 Lexus LS 500

Even before you climb inside, the 2020 Audi A7 Sportback will win you over with its more exciting, more exotic exterior design. The standard dynamic taillights animate when you signal a turn for a futuristic touch and available Matrix-design dynamic LED daytime running lights set you apart from the rest with a unique lighting signature visible day or night. Animating head and taillights aren't available on the 2020 Lexus LS sedan. Neither is a deployable rear spoiler! But that feature comes standard on every 2020 Audi A7. At highway speeds, the sleek and stylish rear spoiler will deploy to increase downforce and stability. The fact that it looks so impressive as you streak past is just a bonus.

And did you know the 2020 Audi A7 Sportback is surprisingly practical? While it has the silhouette of a sporty sedan, it has a generous rear hatchback instead of a trunk. When you lift the rear glass, you'll find up to 24.9 cubic feet of storage for suitcases and shopping bags. The typical sedan trunk of the 2020 Lexus LS 500 gives you just 16.9 cubic feet of storage space.

Audi A7 Dual Touchscreens

FEATURES: 2020 Audi A7 vs. 2020 Lexus LS 500

What's the point of a spacious, elegant executive sedan without serious comforts for both front and back seat passengers? The 2020 Audi A7 is a more comfortable ride whether you're behind the wheel, riding shotgun or backseat driving. With standard tri-zone automatic climate control, the 2020 Audi A7 lets all your passengers enjoy customized climate settings. With its standard dual-zone climate controls, passengers in the rear of the 2020 Lexus LS 500 are at the mercy of the front seat passengers' preferences. And with a standard panoramic sunroof in the Audi A7, you can let in plenty of sunlight for a cabin that feels even lighter and more open. The Lexus LS offers a panoramic glass roof, but it's an additional upgrade.

PERFORMANCE: 2020 Audi A7 vs. 2020 Lexus LS 500

While both these cars are motivated by robust turbocharged V6 engines, the 2020 Audi A7 enjoys improved fuel economy around town thanks in part to a 48-volt mild hybrid system. The 2020 Lexus LS is exclusively powered by internal combustion -- and that means it uses an additional 3 MPG in the city.

And while all-wheel drive is an available option on the 2020 Lexus LS 500, the time-tested quattro® all-wheel drive system comes totally standard on the 2020 Audi A7. AWD will cost you an additional $3,220 MSRP on the already-more-expensive 2020 Lexus LS 500.

The 2020 Lexus LS 500 makes a bit more horsepower than the regular 2020 Audi A7, but even the sportier-looking Lexus LS 500 F Sport doesn't receive a boost in power. If you want all the features and comfort of the Audi A7 along with performance that blows the doors off the 2020 Lexus LS sedan, step up to the 2020 Audi S7 with a mighty twin-turbocharged V6 engine making 444 horsepower.
