2018 BMW 5 Series vs 2018 Lexus GS 300 near Merrillville, IN

In today’s automobile market, there’s certainly no lack of stylish luxury midsize sedans. However, if you’re only interested in taking home a model that offers the pinnacle of performance capabilities and technology, then the 2018 BMW 5 Series is the one for you. The staff at BMW of Schererville is confident that once you take it for a spin, you’ll see why so many drivers are falling in love with this vehicle. To convince you to try it out, we’re comparing it to the 2018 Lexus GS 300!

Performance

We’ll start things off by taking a look under the hood and examining what powers these two luxury sedans. In one corner, we have the 2018 5 Series and its standard 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, which produces a robust 248-hp. Armed with a similar 2.0L turbo system, the 2018 GS 300 falls a bit short with just 241-hp1. When it comes to efficiency, the BMW is able to build on its advantage, as its fuel rating of 24/34 MPG city/hwy2 is superior to the Lexus and its 22/32 MPG city/hwy3 fuel economy. But that’s not all! Both vehicles can be upgraded with a more powerful engine, but you’ll soon see that the GS 300 is no match for the 5 Series. Its available 3.5L V6 engine generates 338-hp3, while the BMW’s available 4.4L turbo V8 engine exudes an unbelievable 456-hp, leaving its rival in the dust.

Technology

No drive would be complete without some intelligent technology features at your disposal. In this regard, the 2018 BMW 5 Series and 2018 Lexus GS 300 are actually pretty even—at least at first glance. Though both sedans are equipped with advancements like Bluetooth® compatibility, USB ports, and premium audio systems, the 5 Series is able to edge out its competitor by providing some crucial systems as standard amenities. First, we have the BMW’s Advanced Real Time Traffic Information System. No one likes being caught in a sudden jam, and with this feature, you’ll always know which route is the quickest. Additionally, reaching a new destination on I-65 is a breeze with the standard BMW Navigation System. While similar advancements can be found in the GS 300, you’ll first have to dig deep into your pockets and spend more of your hard-earned pay on upgrades. There’s no question that when it comes to the sedan that offers more value, the BMW 5 Series is undisputed winner!

After putting them to the test in this model comparison of the 2018 BMW 5 Series vs 2018 Lexus GS 300 near Merrillville, IN, the team at BMW of Schererville has ruled that the 5 Series belongs at the top of the podium. Ready to try it out yourself? Then make your way over to our showroom, located at 1400 US Highway 41 in Schererville, IN. We’d love to see you soon!

I can’t stress how great this dealership was during my most recent visit. From my initial call to set the appointment to dropping off the loaner the process was seamless. Nick, (my consultant) was absolutely wonderful, he kept me updated throughout the entire process, and worked diligently with my warranty company to get my claim approved. Ultimate driving machine, and an awesome team to service them! Thanks Nick and team!!
