2018 BMW 5 Series vs 2018 Lexus GS 300 in Schererville, IN

Are you searching for a sedan that’s going to meet all of your driving needs? If so, we’ve got just the one for you right here at BMW of Schererville—the 2018 BMW 3 Series. We’ve even put it up against one of its competitors, the 2018 Lesux GS 300, to show you why the 3 Series is the clear winner between the two. Once you’ve read why it leaves the GS 300 in the dust, visit us at BMW of Schererville to take the 3 Series for a test drive that will make you fall in love! We are located at 1400 US Highway 41 in Schererville, IN, and hope to see you soon.

Let’s get this comparison rolling with the comfort and space you’ll find in these two sedans. You’ll love that you and your favorite copilot will be getting 40.3 inches of headroom and 58.7 inches of shoulder room to stretch out with utmost comfort in the 3 Series as you cruise down Route 30. Unlike in the GS 300, you only get 38 inches of head room and 57.3 inches of shoulder space, so you might be just a tad cramped as you’re driving. The 3 Series lets you move your seats around 16 different ways so each drive is just the way you want it to be. In the GS 300, your options are a bit limited since you can only adjust the seats around 10 different ways. Not just this, but the 3 Series comes with a memory system that remembers your seat positions so you can just get in your car and go! You won’t find this on the GS 300, so you might be sitting there and fidgeting with the seats for a bit before you can be on your way. The 3 Series was clearly built with comfort and convenience in mind!

We know that one of the most important aspects you look for in a vehicle is performance, so let’s look into what these two sedans can achieve on the roads. The 2018 5 Series’s 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder engine revs out an impressive 248 horsepower that will in no doubt get you to where you need to be in no time. Unfortunately, you may find yourself arriving to your intended destination a little later than anticipated since the GS 300 produces 241 horsepower. If you desire power and making it to your destination in a quick manner, then you’ll love that the goes from 0 to 60 in a mere 4.6 seconds1. The GS 300 takes 7 seconds2 to accelerate, so you won’t be getting that power you want and spending more time on the road before you get to where you need to be. Plus, with the 5 Series’s 15.8 gallon fuel tank capacity, you won’t have to worry about stopping at the gas station frequently. The GS 300, on the other hand, gives you a 17.4 gallon fuel tank capacity, so you’ll be making more stops at the gas station than you’d like.

Both the 5 Series and GS 300 come with some great safety features, but the 5 Series comes with a few that will keep you protected that won’t be found on the GS 300. Included standard on the 5 Series are adaptive brake lights that come in handy during heavy braking. Unfortunately, this feature is available on only higher Lexus trims. Another feature that is found on the 5 Series is the LATCH system, which allows you to easily and conveniently place your children in their seats. This feature is not available on the GS 300, so you’ll have to keep an eye out on your kids as you’re driving. The 5 Series, once again, blows the GS 300 out of the water, and  gives you a peace of mind no matter where you go!

Now that you’ve skimmed through our 2018 BMW 5 Series vs 2018 Lexus GS 300 in Schererville, IN. comparison, it’s clear why the 5 Series takes the cake! Drop by BMW of Schererville to learn even more about all of its amenities. We are open six days a week and look forward to seeing you soon!

Our overall sales experience was positive. I have pretty high standards for larger purchases especially with vehicles and would consider myself a fairly difficult customer to deal with. The team was very patient and we were able to put together a very reasonable lease deal. We left the dealership feeling very good about our decision which wouldn’t have been possible without the high value they clearly place on the sales experience.

BMW of Schererville have awesome, friendly, and kind people working there. They helped me with the car I liked and I got it financed with very low APR. BMW of Schererville fixed everything that was wrong with the car and still provided me with the fantastic deal. We bought 2013 bmw 328xi & 528xi and the cars work and drive great. Amanda was the salesperson that helped us a lot. Chris helped us with giving a great deal on the cars. Katherine was the finance manager and she made sure we got good deal with the cars. Strongly recommend BMW of Schererville.

Yesterday, I purchased my 5th BMW from this location. Chris Hardaway is truly the consummate Client Advisor! I had the most amazing experience believe it or not. He sent William, BMW Genius to pick me up from my home in Chicago. Once I arrived at the dealership, Chris was at the entrance to greet me. The auto purchasing process was yet again very smooth and swift, which I am told (by others) can be stressful. Everyone I interacted with was very pleasant. I cannot remember a time when everyone I met smiled and stopped to converse. The personal touch makes a world of difference. Well done. Until my return... Thank you Chris H. William, Daniel, Glenn and Sven! Monte W.

The staff was very professional and helped me determine what work I needed to have done. Shout out to Stephanie for her excellent customer service. She walked me through all of the work that I needed done and let me know what was imperative and what could wait. She was even willing to help me work on a budget for payment. The loner vehicle I got to drive was exquisite. Every person I came in contact with was professional and polite.
