2019 LEXUS GS 350 VS. 2019 BMW 5 SERIES
Safety and Security

Both the 2019 Lexus GS 350 and the 2019 BMW 5 Series provide comparable safety and security features, including: 

  • Multiple airbags for the driver and passengers (including those in the backseat).
  • 4-wheel disc brakes with brake assist.
  • Child safety locks.
  • Lane assist.
  • Lane departure warning.

However, the Lexus provides more of these features as standard - that is, they are included with every package - whereas brands like BMW charge extra for many of these safety options. Higher-end packages for both include more, and more advanced, safety features, but the Lexus lines provide a greater range of safety and security features at no additional charge.

Luxury and Convenience

Likewise, the Lexus includes more comfort and convenience features than one would expect when compared to the BMW 5 Series, which limits many luxury options to higher-priced packages. 

Once again, the Lexus sedans received high marks from reviewers and consumers on their standard luxury and convenience features, including:

  • Spacious cabins and seating areas.
  • Interior design.
  • Quality of materials.
  • Amazon Alexa compatibility (2019).
  • Lexus Enform Connect smartphone app interactivity (2019).

The new, interactive features in the 2019 Lexus GS350 provide hands-free control of numerous features, so you can keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel. More than just convenient, they address concerns many reviewers had about earlier models' technological limitations.

Pricing and Warranty

The most important, and greatest, difference between the two is the price. While the BMW receives good reviews across the board, so does the Lexus - yet it is half the price! Add the spacious trunks, five-passenger seating with individual settings, and overall quality comparison scores from consumers and the 2019 Lexus GS350 is a much better buy than the BMW.

Further, models like the BMW require more expensive repairs and insurance plans. Although sturdy cars, maintenance and repairs should always be considered. The Lexus GS350 costs less to maintain, less to repair, and less to buy.

The 2019 Lexus GS350 and BMW 5 Series both receive great reviews from owners and reviewers, but all of the models in the Lexus line cost half the price of brands like BMW. When you consider all of the associated costs of owning a car, and the number of features standard to the Lexus, the real question is: How much are you willing to pay for a name?


When comparing the 2019 Lexus GS 350 and the 2019 BMW 5 Series, it's pretty clear to see that the GS 350 comes out on top. If you're still not convinced, stop in today at Hennessy Lexus Gwinnett to check it out for yourself.
