When you’re looking to treat yourself to a super luxury car that caters to your every need, don’t pass up the chance to see the 2018 BMW 7 Series in person at BMW of Schererville. Feel free to visit us at 1400 US Highway 41 in Schererville, IN, if you’re curious to learn more! Before you drop by, check out this model comparison between the 7 Series and the 2018 Lexus LS 500 to see how this BMW stacks up against the competition.

Technology is an indispensable aspect of our everyday life, and this is no different for the cars that we drive. Within both the 2018 7 Series and the Lexus LS 500, you’ll find a myriad of features that are designed to enhance every second of the drive. However, though they appear to be pretty evenly matched, the sedan from BMW is able to gain a slight edge over its rival from Lexus by offering just a bit more. First, the 7 Series is equipped with a standard 16-speaker Harman Kardon Surround Sound System to supply you with concert-quality audio. In 2018 LS 500, the standard sound system only provides 12 speakers for your enjoyment. In addition, it’s easy and convenient to keep your phone at full battery in the sedan from BMW, thanks to the inclusion of standard wireless charging. With no such feature available in the Lexus, you might be out of luck should your phone run out of juice on the road.

As we turn our attention to what lies beneath the hood, we find more ways that the 2018 BMW 7 Series beats out the Lexus LS 500. If you upgrade to the available 4.4L turbocharged V8 engine, you’ll have a jaw-dropping 591-hp and 590 lb.-ft. of torque under your command. To compare, the most you can expect out of the sedan from Lexus is 416-hp and 442 lb.-ft. of torque, courtesy of its 3.5L V6 system. With so much muscle at your disposal in the BMW, you’ll be able to accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.6 seconds1 and reach a maximum speed of 149 MPH2. If you’re behind the wheel of the 2018 LS 500, you’ll have a hard time keeping up, as it takes 4.6 seconds3 to go from 0 to 60 MPH, and it only possesses a top speed of 136 MPH3. For a more invigorating drive as you head to Forest Park Golf Course, choose the 2018 7 Series!

We hope that you found this comparison of the 2018 BMW 7 Series vs 2018 Lexus LS 500 near Valparaiso, IN, helpful and informative. After a tight race, the 7 Series was able to pull off a win over its rival. Stop into BMW of Schererville to learn more about this luxury sedan today! We’d love to take you on a memorable test drive with a member of our staff, so we can demonstrate its features and capabilities.

Nick, the service advisor, explained the repairs to me so I understood them. The wait was not very long. My vehicle was presented to me completely repaired and clean. Nick always treats me nice and lets me know how repairs are progressing. I always try to see him when I bring my vehicle in.

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.

People very friendly and helpful. No issues w/ the work. It took longer than originally promised (it was an oil change - on phone estimated 1-1.5 hours, I was there ~2 hours), but I'm speculating this is because it was Labor Day weekend.
