2016 Lexus ES 350 vs. 2016 BMW 320 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus ES 350 than the BMW 320. The BMW 320 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus ES 350.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus ES 350 as you will with the BMW 320, 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). The Lexus ES 350 is somewhat more expensive than the BMW 320. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Lexus ES 350 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the BMW 320.

Dimensions
The Lexus ES 350 is about the same width as the BMW 320. If you go with the Lexus ES 350, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the BMW 320.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Lexus ES 350 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the BMW 320.

Handling
The Lexus ES 350 has about the same turning radius as the BMW 320, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus ES 350 has a much more powerful engine than the BMW 320. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lexus ES 350 and the BMW 320. The Lexus ES 350 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the BMW 320.
