Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 530 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lexus GS 350 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW 530 and the Lexus GS 350 in the front seats.

Convenience
With the BMW 530 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lexus GS 350, due to its larger tank size and better 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 BMW 530 is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus GS 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 530 and the Lexus GS 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 530 is a little wider than the Lexus GS 350, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the BMW 530 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus GS 350.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 530 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lexus GS 350.

Handling
The BMW 530 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Lexus GS 350, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 530 is significantly less powerful than the Lexus GS 350. 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 BMW 530 and the Lexus GS 350. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the BMW 530 as you will in the Lexus GS 350.

Warranty
The BMW 530 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus GS 350.
