IMO this depends not only on the purpose of the code, but also on the
environment. Like with different algorithms (for sorting...), the same
code can behave differently, depending on the data etc.


HLL code can have a better performance, when recompiled with a new
compiler, or for new hardware.


I'd say that carefully optimized LLL code will not run slower than HLL
code. Everything else depends... ;-)
