BMW 5 Series vs. Lexus GS Performance Comparison

2016 BMW 5 Series BMW and Lexus are both known for their high-performing vehicles, but when you take a side-by-side look at the 5 Series and the GS, there aren't as many similarities as you might think. 

The Lexus GS offers a smooth and powerful ride thanks to its turbo inline four-cylinder engine and 241 horsepower. However, if you compare ride quality and driving dynamics, the 2016 BMW 5 Series is a bit more competitive with its 3.0-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo engine, which delivers 300 horsepower and comes paired with Driving Dynamics Control with ECO PRO mode. 

Thanks to the advanced suspension system and an eight-speed sport automatic transmission, the BMW 5 Series is one of the best in the industry. The vehicle easily takes turns without feeling like there's any loss of control, and acceleration from stop lights is smooth and quick.

Technology Comparison

It's easy to get caught up in the technical details when comparing two vehicles, and it's especially easy when you're looking at two upscale vehicles such as the 2016 BMW 5 Series vs. the 2016 Lexus GS. 

2016 BMW 5 Series While the system in the 2016 BMW 5 Series is easy to use and ergonomically placed within the vehicle, the system in the 2016 Lexus GS is a bit more complex. In fact, many reviewers have not only called the system in the GS distracting but also frustrating and irritating to use. 

The 2016 BMW 5 Series features an intuitive rotary controller and programmable buttons that make it easy for you to access a number of features without having to be overly distracted from what's happening on the road ahead. The infotainment system in the Lexus GS, on the other hand, can only be controlled by using the remote touch interface.
