2018 BMW X3 vs 2018 Lexus NX 300 near Portage, IN

2018 BMW X3 vs 2018 Lexus NX 300 near Portage, INPictured left is the 2018 BMW X3 with optional features. 

Advanced Features in the BMW X3

For a luxury compact SUV with plenty of power and amenities, it’s difficult to go wrong with the 2018 BMW X3. It only takes one test spin at the helm of this lively vehicle to see what it can do, so pay a visit to BMW of Schererville to schedule your appointment today. In the meantime, take a look at this model comparison of the X3 and the 2018 Lexus NX 300, so you can see for yourself how this BMW stacks up against the competition!

Technology

Let’s take a step inside and see what sort of technology can be found within the cabins of these two luxury vehicles. At first glance, the 2018 X3 and 2018 NX 300 seem pretty evenly matched, with both offering features like HD Radio™ and Bluetooth®1 hands-free capabilities. However, when you go to listen to your favorite bands, you’ll quickly discover that the SUV from BMW offers a much more fulfilling experience, as the X3 is equipped with a standard 12-speaker HiFi Sound System and a 205-watt digital amplifier. Even if you upgrade to the NX 300’s premium system, you’ll still only have ten speakers at your disposal, leaving a bit to be desired.

Comfort

In addition to superior technology, the 2018 BMW X3 also excels when it comes to interior comfort. When you and your spouse are heading to dinner at Rosewood Family Restaurant, you’ll both be able to find the perfect position to keep the journey cozy, thanks to the standard 10-way power-adjustable front seats in the X3. In comparison, the Lexus NX 300 only supplies the driver with a 10-way adjustable seat, while the passenger can only access a less versatile 8-way adjustable chair. Furthermore, getting into and out of the Lexus is less convenient with just 38.2 inches of headroom. On the other hand, the BMW X3 has you covered, providing a generous 41.1 inches of headroom, so you don’t have to crouch or stoop just get behind the wheel.

Performance

Let’s wrap things up by comparing how these two SUVs perform. Although both the BMW X3 and Lexus NX 300 are equipped with similar 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engines, this is where the similarities cease. Generating a stellar 248-hp, the 2018 X3 is prepared for anything and won’t fail to thrill when you step on the gas. Unfortunately, if you go with the Lexus, you’ll only be able to access an underwhelming 235-hp2. Moreover, the BMW is also superior when it comes to fuel efficiency, boasting a competitive rating of 23/30 MPG city/hwy3. The NX 300 just can’t keep up, achieving a less reliable fuel rating of 22/28 MPG city/hwy4 and costing you more in the long run.

After putting them head-to-head, we’ve determined that between the 2018 BMW X3 vs 2018 Lexus NX 300 near Portage, IN, the X3 is your champion! If you’re ready to experience it for yourself, contact the staff at BMW of Schererville to schedule a test drive. We’re looking forward to meeting with you soon!

Gave me a great deal. Treated me with utmost respect. Down to earth people. Professional knowledgeable outgoing. Next car will come from here. I'll go back just to visit Adeline Dan Berkli and everyone else involved in this purchase. Porters are most responsible personable kids I've ever met. The entire staff made me feel like family. Have never had an experience like this in a dealership. Hats off to the owners and GM.

Driving to work and something broke on my X3 and had to pull over. Called Nick in service before 7am and he immediately spoke with his managers Joe and Kevin (not to be confused with Nick, Joe, and Kevin Jonas) who took great care of me. They sent a porter out with a loaner so I could get to work and the porter waited with my vehicle until the flatbed arrived. Nick called me as soon as my vehicle arrived and kept me posted on it's status. They had it repaired that evening and I was able to pick it up - even nicer that they didn't charge me. (Warranty is up but I had it in for full service two weeks ago and this may have been overlooked.) Anyways, these three went ABOVE and BEYOND and I cannot say enough nice things about the service dept here! Definitely recommend!

Not sure how to describe my experience. The sales person Antonio was pleasant and attentive as I shopped for my vehicle long distance. He followed through on everything I asked of him including sending me a signed purchase agreement via email with the final (what I thought was) out the door price of the vehicle. I drove 4 hours to finish the paperwork and drive the car home. When I got there and sat down with the finance person the price of the vehicle with fees and taxes was not what I was quoted. I was told both by the finance manager and what I assumed was the gm..that nothing could be done about the fees and pricing...no apologies were given. If they would have at least apologized for the lack of communication I would most likely have let it go. Instead I was told the vehicle was in high demand with others calling on it and I should take it or leave it. I ended up taking it but left with a very bad taste in my mouth for this dealership. I really wanted a smooth pleasant buying experience but in the end I just feel let down.i love the car..but the buying experience was disappointing.

I was searching for a used car online and found one that I was interested in at BMW of Schererville. I spoke to a person on the phone and set up an appointment to look at the car. When i arrived at the dealership, the car was up front, clean and ready to go. I met my salesperson, Laura, drive the car and decided to take the car. The whole process was quick, professional and very smooth. Everyone was courteous, friendly and professional. I would definitely consider using this dealership again when looking for a vehicle.

Adeline is absolutely wonderful!! She’s patient, detailed and knowledgeable. I really appreciate Adeline’s customer service and expertise in helping me to find the right vehicle for me and I love my X3. Now, Will who helped me understand the technology- bells and whistles was NOT very helpful or engaged in giving me that superb service. So, I’ll be back to ask more about my technology. #LoveMyBMW

I normally receive great service. However, my last visit was not great. I came in to get brakes and an oil change.I was told that ot would be 2.5 hours, so I stayed there. I was there over 4 hours. When I got back in my car my brake light was till on. I go back in and young man tells me that my brakes were not done because they were still over 5mm. 1. I stayed there for over 4 hrs for an oil change 2. Why didnt he tell me that before I got in my car? All in All, bad customer service this visit. I called a manager and left a message and no call back still 4 days later. Edit: spoke to a manager, they are correcting the issue
