BMW vs Lexus Brand Comparison

Why BMW vs Lexus?

BMW and Lexus have many things in common in terms of vehicle offerings and pricing. These are luxury cars that sell at a premium, so it’s vital that you carefully check out the traits that mean the most to you, including performance, style, prestige and the all-important fun-to-drive factor. While Lexus is known for its plush-riding vehicles, you should not confuse Lexus performance with BMW’s. Furthermore, when you view their comparable vehicles, you’ll immediately appreciate the sharp styling that excites BMW drivers versus the rather bland look known as Lexus Generic.

BMW Performance

There is a very good reason that BMW is know as the ultimate driving machine – performance. Powerful acceleration, precision handling and perfect road feel are the hallmarks of the BMW nameplate. Lexus has taken a very different approach, engineering out the connection between driver and road in favor of a pillow-like experience. Take this simple test: Test-drive comparable BMW and Lexus vehicles, especially taking tight turns, and contrast the precise control offered by the BMW against the lack of feedback from many Lexus vehicles.

BMW Design

From the outside in, BMW offers design and styling that leaves Lexus in the dust. BMW interiors provide luxury that is balanced with function, as the two combine to promote the most enjoyable automotive experience, along with performance-oriented features like advanced engines, superior suspensions, and wind-cheating aerodynamics. Both carmakers offer leather and wood, but only one provides a race-inspired design that makes driving a thrill.

BMW Wins
