2014 Lexus IS 350C vs. 2015 BMW 650 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 650 than the Lexus IS 350C, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lexus IS 350C and the BMW 650 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus IS 350C as you will with the BMW 650, 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 Lexus IS 350C is clearly a better financial choice over the BMW 650. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Lexus IS 350C and the BMW 650 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus IS 350C is much slimmer than the BMW 650, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Lexus IS 350C, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the BMW 650.

Drivetrain
The Lexus IS 350C has much less torque than the BMW 650, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Lexus IS 350C has a significantly smaller turning radius than the BMW 650, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus IS 350C is significantly less powerful than the BMW 650. 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 Lexus IS 350C and the BMW 650. The Lexus IS 350C has less cargo capacity than the BMW 650, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Lexus IS 350C comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 650.
