2013 Lexus IS-F vs. 2014 BMW 528 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 528 than the Lexus IS-F, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lexus IS-F and the BMW 528 in the front seats.

Convenience
With the BMW 528 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Lexus IS-F, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 IS-F is somewhat more expensive than the BMW 528. 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-F and the BMW 528 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus IS-F is much slimmer than the BMW 528, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Lexus IS-F, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the BMW 528.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Lexus IS-F does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the BMW 528.

Handling
The Lexus IS-F has a significantly smaller turning radius than the BMW 528, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus IS-F has a much more powerful engine than the BMW 528. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Lexus IS-F has less seating than the BMW 528, making the BMW 528 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Lexus IS-F has less cargo capacity than the BMW 528, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Lexus IS-F comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 528.
