2013 BMW 128 vs. 2014 Lexus CT 200h Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the BMW 128 than in the Lexus CT 200h, due to the BMW 128's smaller rear head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW 128, drivers may find the Lexus CT 200h a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Lexus CT 200h you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the BMW 128, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the BMW 128 or the Lexus CT 200h, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW 128 and the Lexus CT 200h have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 128 is a little narrower than the Lexus CT 200h, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the BMW 128 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus CT 200h.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW 128 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus CT 200h.

Handling
The BMW 128 has a larger turning radius than the Lexus CT 200h, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 128 has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus CT 200h. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The BMW 128 has less seating than the Lexus CT 200h, making the Lexus CT 200h the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
The BMW 128 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus CT 200h.
