Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Bronco offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Lexus NX 300. The Ford Bronco will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus NX 300.

Convenience
With the Lexus NX 300, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Bronco, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). Whether you pick the Ford Bronco or the Lexus NX 300, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Ford Bronco is much higher than that for the Lexus NX 300.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Bronco is much wider than the Lexus NX 300, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Ford Bronco, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Lexus NX 300.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Ford Bronco is clearly the choice over the Lexus NX 300 for pulling heavy loads. The Ford Bronco has a little more horsepower than the Lexus NX 300.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Ford Bronco transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Lexus NX 300.

Utility
The Ford Bronco has less seating than the Lexus NX 300, making the Lexus NX 300 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Ford Bronco has less cargo space than the Lexus NX 300, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Bronco is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Lexus NX 300.
