2019 BMW 4 Series vs 2019 Lexus RC in Baton Rouge, LA

2019 BMW 4 Series vs 2019 Lexus RC in Baton Rouge, LAPictured left is the 2019 BMW 4 Series with optional features. Pictured right is the 2019 Lexus RC with optional features. 

2019 Lexus RC

Your next luxury coupe should provide a healthy dose of power, comfort, and safety, so be sure to set your sights on a model that excels in these regards. Here at Brian Harris BMW, we firmly believe that the 2019 BMW 4 Series fits the bill! Before you visit us for a test drive, take a look at this comparison of the 4 Series and the 2019 Lexus RC to learn which option is superior.

Performance

The 2019 4 Series Coupe roars off the line with conviction, thanks to its assortment of capable mechanical components. Its standard 2.0L TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine pumps out 248 horsepower, arming you with the necessary brawn to keep your morning commute from growing stale. Meanwhile, although the Lexus RC has a comparable 2.0L turbo powertrain at its heart, it falls a bit short of the BMW, producing 241 horsepower2. As a result, whereas the 4 Series can accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in just 5.5 seconds2, the Lexus takes a sluggish 7.3 seconds3 to reach 60 MPH from a standing start. Finally, while both coupes can be equipped with engine upgrades, the 4 Series outduels its rival, thanks to its 3.0L turbo system’s 320 horsepower. The 2019 RC’s optional 3.5L V6 engine only manages to generate 311 horsepower1.

Comfort

In addition to keeping your daily drives down I-10 thrilling, the 2019 BMW 4 Series is also equipped to supply outstanding comfort for everyone on board. To begin, your friends riding in the back will have plenty of space to stretch out, thanks to the 33.7 inches of rear legroom at their disposal. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for the 2019 Lexus RC, as its backseat supplies just 27.3 inches of leg space, which could result in cramps during longer excursions. Even when you move up to the front row in the Lexus, the story doesn’t improve much, as you have to upgrade to arm your driver’s seat with a memory function. Once again, the coupe from BMW steps in to save the day by equipping its driver’s chair with a standard memory system to ensure your seat is always just where you like it.

Which Is Safer—the 2019 4 Series or 2019 RC?

We’ll wrap up this review by examining the respective safety features provided by the BMW 4 Series and Lexus RC. Although both coupes offer similar advancements, the option from BMW goes just a bit further by including more systems as standard equipment. For instance, backing out of a spot in a busy parking lot is easier with the assistance of Rear Cross Traffic Alert, which tells you when another vehicle is approaching that you might not be able to see. Plus, should a sudden downpour catch you off guard, the 4 Series’ standard rain-sensing windshield wipers will engage as soon as they detect moisture on the glass. To access these in the Lexus coupe, you’ll have to spend more funds on upgrades.

We think you’ll agree with us that between the 2019 BMW 4 Series vs 2019 Lexus RC in Baton Rouge, LA, the 4 Series ended up on top. Brian Harris BMW would love to tell you more about this stunning luxury coupe, so visit us at 12336 Airline Highway in Baton Rouge, LA, to see it in action today!

Without a doubt this is the best buying experience I have ever had. The entire staff is friendly and helpful and my salesman Josh Kinsley was great. He answered all of my questions, was upfront and transparent with me and there was no hassle. I also dealt with the sales manger Darryl and I must say I'm extremely impressed. This was my 8 vehicle from Brian Harris and this was by far the best experience yet. Im loving my x7. Thanks for all the help and I look forward to doing business again.

I've been to several car service centers but Brian Harris BMW was most definitely the best!!! Their expertise in BMWs, their customer service and how they made me feel important as a customer were second to none! They worked well with my warranty people and got my X6 back on the road running alot better than it had before. I would highly recommend Brian Harris BMW to anyone who needs professional, expertised work done on their BMW!

I missed my appointment to take my X.3 in for service work but when I took it in the next day they jumped right on it and got it taken care of much faster than I even expected. The service was great the work was done professionally and they even gave me a free Coke while I waited! Very friendly and knowledgeable service team.

Mr.Billy Robin is such a nice guy . I went to look for a vehicle for my son and drove like 4 cars with different years same models and came back to Mr.Billy for the vehicle for my son . It was because how I was treated with kindness and respect and he wasn’t pushy or didn’t look down on me or trying to sale me a car because I was a woman. Thank you Mr.Billy Robin. I surely will take good care of you as well if anyone of your family members ever come to Woman’s Hospital.Lee Brown 😀😀💕🙏

First, the Brian Harris BMW facility and show room is quite large and very impressive. My Wife and I were simply delighted with everyone we met during our visit. We especially appreciated our time with the Financial Manager and above all our Sales Rep “Billy Robin”. Billy not only facilitated our purchase (2019 BMW X5) but also helped us return our Rental car and coordinated site seeing suggestions in New Orleans with a co-worker, “ Tommy”. Our time at Brian Harris BMW created very good memories and was a most pleasurable experience. I fully recommend shopping at Bran Harris BMW. They will be on the very top of my list for my next vehicle purchase.

My five star rating is really for Mr. Carl Fontenot. From the very first approach on the lot, he was inviting, professional, and knowledgable. Not once did I feel rushed to make any decisions. He's genuinely a great guy! The atmosphere of the dealership was so peaceful; like no other. With that being said, shop Brian Harris to not only purchase the ultimate driving experience, but to receive the ultimate customer care.
