2014 BMW 335 vs. 2015 Lexus GS 350 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the BMW 335 than in the Lexus GS 350, due to the BMW 335's smaller rear head- and legroom. The BMW 335 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus GS 350.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 335 as you will with the Lexus GS 350, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). Based on MSRP, the BMW 335 is clearly a better financial choice over the Lexus GS 350. 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 335 and the Lexus GS 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 335 is a little narrower than the Lexus GS 350, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The BMW 335 is slightly shorter than the Lexus GS 350, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW 335 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lexus GS 350.

Handling
The BMW 335 has a larger turning radius than the Lexus GS 350, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the BMW 335 and the Lexus GS 350.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 335 and the Lexus GS 350. The BMW 335 has less cargo capacity than the Lexus GS 350, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The BMW 335 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus GS 350.
