2019 Lexus ES 350 vs 2019 BMW 530i

In the world of luxury sedans, an upscale cabin, efficient fuel economy and superior technology are the most sought after features. These indulgences may be why you are considering the 2019 BMW 530i, but take a look at the 2019 Lexus ES 350. The all-new 2019 Lexus ES 350 has been boldly styled and offers several customization options. It is both elegant and athletic.

The 2019 Lexus ES 350 is the “most stylish ES ever” according to caranddriver.com[1]. It comes in seven styles and has a starting MSRP of $39,600. The 2019 BMW 530i also comes in seven trim levels but has a starting MSRP of $55,700. That’s over $16,000 more. The new 2019 Lexus ES 350 is now longer, wider and lower. It provides industry-leading rear legroom, with 39.2 inches. That’s 2.7 more inches than the 2019 BMW 530i. Kelley Blue Book also praised the ES 350, saying, “the rear seats are incredibly spacious, with more than ample legroom. Also impressive is the headroom.”[2]

A panorama glass roof, heated and ventilated seats and ambient lighting – which brightens, or dims based on if the vehicle is moving or stationary – are available options on the 2019 Lexus ES 350.

The performance offered in luxury vehicles is some of the best. The 2019 Lexus ES 350 now features a swing-valve shock absorber. It’s the world’s first and it makes for a smoother and more refined ride on uneven surfaces[3]. New on the 2019 Lexus ES 350 is the 302-horsepower V6 engine. The powerful sedan goes 0 to 60 mph in 6.6 seconds. The 2019 BMW 530i xDrive sedan is equipped with a 2.0-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine and goes 0 to 60 mph in 5.8 seconds[4]. We don’t think the minor difference in takeoff time is worth over $16,000 in upcharge on otherwise comparable models.

The new 2019 ES 350 is Lexus’ most stylish sedan yet and is priced over $16,000 less than top competitors like the 2019 BMW 530i.
