Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus ES 350 than the BMW 330, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW 330 and the Lexus ES 350 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 330 as you will with the Lexus ES 350, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW 330 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lexus ES 350. 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 330 and the Lexus ES 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 330 is much slimmer than the Lexus ES 350, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW 330, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Lexus ES 350.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW 330 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lexus ES 350.

Handling
The BMW 330 has a smaller turning radius than the Lexus ES 350, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW 330 has less horsepower than the Lexus ES 350, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 330 and the Lexus ES 350. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the BMW 330 as you will in the Lexus ES 350.

Warranty
The BMW 330 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus ES 350.
