Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW M850 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Lexus RC 350. The Lexus RC 350 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW M850.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW M850 as you will with the Lexus RC 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 M850 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Lexus RC 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 M850 and the Lexus RC 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW M850 is much wider than the Lexus RC 350, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the BMW M850, which is slightly longer than the Lexus RC 350.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW M850 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus RC 350.

Handling
The BMW M850 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Lexus RC 350, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW M850 has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus RC 350. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW M850 and the Lexus RC 350. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW M850 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Lexus RC 350.

Warranty
The BMW M850 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus RC 350.
