2015 BMW 535 vs. 2015 Lexus GS 350 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 535 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lexus GS 350 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus GS 350, the BMW 535 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The BMW 535 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). Whether you pick the BMW 535 or the Lexus GS 350, 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 535 will cost more in transportation costs than the Lexus GS 350.

Dimensions
The BMW 535 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 535 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus GS 350.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW 535 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lexus GS 350.

Handling
The BMW 535 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Lexus GS 350, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the BMW 535 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 535 and the Lexus GS 350. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the BMW 535 as you will in the Lexus GS 350.
