BMW X5 vs Lexus RX 350: Design & Style

Luxury SUVs are known for their high-end design features. The BMW X5 and the Lexus RX 350 don’t disappoint with available genuine leather seating surfaces, leather-wrapped steering wheels, and plenty of cargo space.

The BMW X5 truly elevates your style and luxury, though. In this BMW Sports Activity Vehicle® (SAV®), front occupants can enjoy available Multi-contour seats with lumbar support and a memory system. However, you’ll even get a luxurious experience on the base trim. Standardly, the 2022 X5 comes with power front sport seats with 2-way power side bolsters, thigh support, a memory system, and three stages of heat.

Heated front seats and a memory system for the seats are only available features in the Lexus RX 350 that you’ll have to add. Also, the 2022 BMW X5 comes with a standard Panoramic Moonroof, which provides a great view and fresh air for all. The Lexus RX 350 gives you the option of a panorama glass roof but again it requires you to make an upgrade to access the feature.

BMW X5 vs Lexus RX 350: Performance

The BMW X5 and the Lexus RX 350 also differ when it comes to performance. While the Lexus RX 350 offers one engine option, the BMW X5 offers multiple engine choices, including a hybrid. How these engines perform is even more impressive than the selection, though.

If you’re looking for an adrenaline rush, the 2022 BMW X5 M will do. With its 4.4L BMW M TwinPower Turbo V8 engine, you’ll get to experience up to a whopping 617 horsepower. Unfortunately, since the biggest engine the RX 350 has to offer is a V6, the Lexus SUV maxes out at just 295 horsepower.

If it’s efficiency that you’re after, the BMW X5 can deliver since it has an available plug-in hybrid configuration. Enjoy up to an EPA-estimated 50 combined MPGe (miles per gallone of gasoline-equivalent) with the X5 xDrive45e trim, which is something the Lexus RX 350 can’t match since it doesn’t offer a plug-in hybrid powertrain.1

BMW X5 vs Lexus RX 350: Technologies

The 2022 BMW X5 and the 2022 Lexus RX 350 are most evenly matched in the realm of technology. Both models offer intuitive and intelligent infotainment systems with skills galore. These systems provide navigation, smartphone integration, hands-free phone calling, and much more.

The Lexus RX 350 begins to fall behind when it comes to driver-assistive technology. The BMW X5 is a step ahead with several industry-leading technologies, such as an optional Extended Traffic Jam Assistant in the available Driving Assistance Professional Package.

You’ll miss out on more than just one cutting-edge driver-assistive system with the Lexus RX 350. For example, the X5’s available Active Driving Assistant Pro comes with Evasion Assist aid to help stay out of harm’s way in emergency situations.


Which SUV is Best for You?

The 2022 Lexus RX 350 and 2022 BMW X5 are both top-notch premium SUVs, but after a closer look, you can see that the 2022 X5 is set to give you added assistance for safe commuting, more power for exciting driving, and first-class comfort.
