2015 BMW 528 vs. 2014 Lexus GS 350 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the BMW 528 than in the Lexus GS 350, due to the BMW 528's smaller rear head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus GS 350, the BMW 528 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The BMW 528 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Lexus GS 350, making it more convenient to drive.

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). The BMW 528 is somewhat more expensive than 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 528 and the Lexus GS 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 528 is a little wider than the Lexus GS 350, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the BMW 528 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus GS 350.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 528 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lexus GS 350.

Handling
The BMW 528 has a larger turning radius than the Lexus GS 350, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 528 is significantly less powerful than the Lexus GS 350. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 528 and the Lexus GS 350. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the BMW 528 as you will in the Lexus GS 350.

Warranty
The BMW 528 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus GS 350.
