Comparison Review

The BMW X2 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Lexus NX 300, with comparable head- and legroom. The Lexus NX 300 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW X2, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

The BMW X2 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Lexus NX 300, making it more convenient to drive.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW X2 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lexus NX 300. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the BMW X2 and the Lexus NX 300 have similar Destination Charges.

Since the BMW X2 is much slimmer than the Lexus NX 300, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW X2, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Lexus NX 300.

The BMW X2 has the same turning radius as the Lexus NX 300, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

The BMW X2 has a little less horsepower than the Lexus NX 300.

With similar torque, the BMW X2 and the Lexus NX 300 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X2 and the Lexus NX 300. The BMW X2 has less cargo space than the Lexus NX 300, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

The BMW X2 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus NX 300.
