PERFORMANCE

Lexus RX 350

The Lexus RX 350 and the BMW X5 are ready to take you for a ride. Are you interested in getting behind the wheel? You can expect dynamic performance from either SUV thanks to their energetic powertrains and drive mode systems. However, if you want the more efficient and stable traveler, choose the Lexus RX 350.

A Thrilling Performance

Under the hoods of the Lexus RX 350 and the BMW X5, you’ll find powerful engines that work hard to make your commutes exciting.

The Lexus RX 350 is powered by a 3.5L V6 engine that’s mated with an 8-speed automatic Electronically Controlled Transmission.

Under the hood of the BMW X5 is a similar 3.0L 6-cylinder engine that generates around the same power and strength as the Lexus SUV. That’s not the only similarity under their hoods, though!

Dynamic Driving

With a standard drive mode select system offered with both SUVs, you can make your commute even more exciting with the selectable Sport mode. When this mode is selected, you’ll experience enhanced performance to help you feel like a racecar driver when traveling around town.

However, there are some differences as well. Standard on the RX 350 is front-wheel drive, providing better traction on less-than-ideal road conditions thanks to better weight distribution. The X5, on the other hand, carries standard rear-wheel drive.

TECHNOLOGY

Lexus RX 350

Having a comfortable, powerful commute is fun, but Lexus and BMW know safety is the most important thing. That’s why both luxury SUVs come equipped with advanced safety features to help you feel confident behind the wheel. Through course correction and accident prevention features, you can experience added peace of mind wherever you go.

Advanced Safety Technologies

A series of cameras and sensors monitors a range around both SUVs and alerts you to potential hazards. Under certain circumstances, some features may even provide automatic intervention if there’s no reaction to the warning.

In the Lexus RX 350, the standard Lexus Safety System+ 2.0 comes with the following driving aids:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
  • Intelligent High Beams
  • Lane Tracing Assist
  • Road Sign Assist
  • All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control

Always Keeping an Eye Out for You

A Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert is also standard on the RX 350. When we look at the standard Active Driving Assistant suite in the BMW X5, you’ll find some similar features. However, it only includes four systems, leaving out Road Sign Assist, Dynamic Cruise Control, Lane Tracing, and more.
