2016 Lexus RX 350 vs. 2016 BMW X4 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus RX 350 than in the BMW X4. The Lexus RX 350 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW X4.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus RX 350 as you will with the BMW X4, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Lexus RX 350 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW X4. 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 RX 350 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the BMW X4.

Dimensions
The Lexus RX 350 is about the same width as the BMW X4. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Lexus RX 350, which is slightly longer than the BMW X4.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Lexus RX 350 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW X4.

Handling
The Lexus RX 350 has a significantly larger turning radius than the BMW X4, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Lexus RX 350 will do just as well as the BMW X4, since they have about the same towing capacity. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Lexus RX 350 and the BMW X4.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Lexus RX 350 and the BMW X4. The Lexus RX 350 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the BMW X4.

Warranty
The Lexus RX 350 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW X4.
