Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 740 than the Lexus ES 300h. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus ES 300h, the BMW 740 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 740 as you will with the Lexus ES 300h, 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). The BMW 740 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Lexus ES 300h, which has a much lower MSRP.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 740 is much wider than the Lexus ES 300h, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the BMW 740, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Lexus ES 300h.

Handling
The BMW 740 has a larger turning radius than the Lexus ES 300h, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 740 has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus ES 300h. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW 740 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus ES 300h.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 740 and the Lexus ES 300h.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW 740 than that of the Lexus ES 300h.
