2020 Lexus NX 300 VS. 2020 BMW X3

January 9th, 2020 by

Both the 2020 Lexus NX 300 and 2020 BMW X3 are smaller luxury crossovers. Both vehicles are considered high quality, stylish and built for comfort. But which vehicle is right for you? At Lexus of Shreveport, we’ve done some of the research for you to make it easier to decide.

Generally, the Lexus lineup is known for its quality, comfort and reliability, while the BMW models are known more for their focus on performance. Both vehicles comfortably seat 5 passengers, their base models sport a 2.0L 4cyl Turbo engine and they both have the same basic warranty (although Lexus has a longer powertrain warranty). Read on to find out why the Lexus beats its competition.

While the two vehicles have several similarities, the new 2020 Lexus NX 300 costs over $5000 less than the comparable new 2020 BMW X3. And when you compare them side by side, the Lexus has some additional standard equipment the BMW doesn’t have. Satellite radio, for example, is standard on the NX but unavailable on the X3. Adaptive cruise control is another feature the BMW lacks. And, oddly enough, the nearly $43,000 BMW doesn’t have keyless entry! What? Both vehicles have push button start, but only the Lexus come with a voice recognition system, standard.

Furthermore, the Lexus Safety System+ is standard on most new Lexus vehicles, including the new 2020 Lexus NX 300. It’s an integrated suite of class-leading standard active safety equipment, including a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Assistance, Intelligent High-Beams and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. The BMW falls short of much of this safety tech. Both the 2020 Lexus NX 300 and the 2020 BMW X3 have Apple CarPlay connectivity, but Android Auto won’t be available in the new BMW models until much later this year.

So why would you pay more and get less? If you’re considering a new 2020 BMW X3, maybe you should reconsider.
