Comparing Luxury Midsize SUVs in Middletown, NY: Lexus RX 350 vs. BMW X5

More drivers these days are investing in SUVs as they offer versatility and space for everyone and everything you want to bring along for the ride. Two models that stand out in this automotive category are the Lexus RX 350 and the BMW X5. To help you narrow down your options and highlight why the Lexus model is the better option, Lexus of Orange County has created this comparison between these two popular SUVs.

Performance, Reliability, and Safety

    - While the new BMW X5 comes with several robust powertrain options, the new Lexus RX 350 comes out on top by having better fuel efficiency than its counterpart. With higher gas mileage, you can spend more time driving and less time at the pump.
    - For a more reliable model, choose the Lexus RX 350, as it has a predicted reliability rating of 4.5 out of five from J.D. Power. The BMW X5 falls short with a predicted reliability rating of just 3.5 out of five.
    - Both models come loaded with advanced safety features, but the Lexus RX 350 includes lane-keep assist, which helps you stay safely centered in your driving lane. The BMW X5 offers this feature as an optional upgrade but does not come standard with it.

Cabin and Tech Features

    - There's no doubt that each model has an exceptionally lavish cabin. However, the Lexus RX 350 comes with sliding and reclining rear seats, giving back-seat passengers more room to stretch out than they could in the BMW X5.
    - You'll find an abundance of tech features in the BMW X5, but some standard features in the Lexus RX 350 aren't standard in the BMW SUV. For instance, the Lexus SUV comes with Amazon Alexa, giving you hands-free control of features while on the go.
