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 350. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus ES 350, the BMW 740 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The BMW 740 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Lexus ES 350, making it more convenient to drive.

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 350, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 740 and the Lexus ES 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 740 is much wider than the Lexus ES 350, 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 350.

Handling
The BMW 740 has a larger turning radius than the Lexus ES 350, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 740 is somewhat more powerful than the Lexus ES 350.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW 740 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lexus ES 350.

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 350.
