Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus GS 350 than the BMW M340, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW M340 and the Lexus GS 350 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW M340 as you will with the Lexus GS 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). The BMW M340 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 M340 and the Lexus GS 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW M340 is about the same width as the Lexus GS 350. The BMW M340 is slightly shorter than the Lexus GS 350, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW M340 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lexus GS 350.

Handling
The BMW M340 has a larger turning radius than the Lexus GS 350, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW M340 and the Lexus GS 350. The BMW M340 has less cargo capacity than the Lexus GS 350, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The BMW M340 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus GS 350.
