Comparison Review

Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus ES 300h than the BMW 330. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus ES 300h, drivers may find the BMW 330 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus ES 300h as you will with the BMW 330, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 Lexus ES 300h is somewhat more expensive than the BMW 330. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Lexus ES 300h and the BMW 330 have similar Destination Charges.

Since the Lexus ES 300h is much wider than the BMW 330, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Lexus ES 300h, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the BMW 330.

The Lexus ES 300h has much less torque than the BMW 330, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

The Lexus ES 300h has a larger turning radius than the BMW 330, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus ES 300h is significantly less powerful than the BMW 330. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lexus ES 300h and the BMW 330. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Lexus ES 300h as you will in the BMW 330.

The Lexus ES 300h comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 330.
