When weighing your options for your next luxury SUV, you probably have a few key aspects on your list of desires. If invigorating muscle, advanced technology, and outstanding comfort are all a priority, then the 2019 BMW X5 could be the one for you! Before you take it for a spin at BMW of Meridian, check out this comparison between the X5 and the 2019 Lexus GX 460 to learn how the BMW is superior.


BMW X5 interior seats

As soon as you climb into the 2019 X5’s spacious and accommodating cabin, you’ll feel right at home within its cozy confines. For instance, setting the right mood for every moment is a breeze, thanks to the standard BMW Ambient Lighting that includes 12 selectable designs. To compare, the SUV from Lexus doesn’t include this feature at any trim. Moreover, the GX 460 is no match for the BMW when it comes to keeping you comfortable behind the wheel, as its standard driver’s seat is only a 10-way power-adjustable option. Thankfully, the X5 has you covered with its standard and versatile 16-way power front sport seats! After this first round, the SUV from BMW has taken a commanding lead.


In addition to exceptional luxury, the cabin of the 2019 BMW X5 also ups the ante when it comes to interior technology. Staying safe behind the wheel isn’t a challenge, as the standard Active Driving Assistant1 provides an impressive suite of protective features. For example, Lane Departure Warning and Frontal Collision Warning are there to monitor your surroundings and alert you of potential hazards. Though similar advancements can be found in the GX 460, you’ll have to spend more on optional upgrades to benefit from them. Furthermore, the SUV from BMW comes with a standard navigation system, so getting lost becomes a thing of the past. Once again, this feature is only an option in the Lexus.

When we turn our attention to performance, the BMW X5 really starts to shine, while its rival gets left in the dust. If you choose to take home the Lexus GX 460, you’ll soon realize that the 301-hp and 329 lb.-ft. of torque generated by its 4.6L V8 engine can’t hold a candle to the BMW’s 335-hp and 330 lb.-ft. of torque, courtesy of the standard 3.0L turbocharged 6-cylinder system. As if that weren’t enough, the X5 also manages to operate an enviable 20/26 MPG city/hwy2, meaning that your joyrides on I-59 won’t be interrupted as often. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the vehicle from Lexus, due to its underwhelming fuel economy rating of 15/18 MPG city/hwy3.
