All I can say is that the 1998 LS400 I used to drive for some time was a similar quality ride (smoothness and quietness considered) as my current 2001 E320.
Both companies made advances in their technologies by now, so I am sure which company is ahead now, but it seems like they are competing head-to-head, not really letting anybody take the market in this regard. Merc just seems to advertise this factor less than Lexus.
BTW, I used to find the name Lexus to be so beautiful. But after I found out that it stands for "Luxury EXport US", this ruined everything for me. I can't even look at those cars anymore.
92% of all people suck at math. I am a part of the 9% who don't.
