2019 BMW X3 vs 2018 Lexus RX in Baton Rouge, LA

2019 BMW X3 vs 2018 Lexus RX in Baton Rouge, LA2019 BMW X3 shown with optional features.

When you choose the 2019 BMW X3, you’re getting a compact SUV with a remarkable performance and comfortable interior for you and your friends riding along. Here at Brian Harris BMW, we put it in a battle against the 2018 Lexus RX, so you can get a feel of why the Lexus RX takes home the gold medal. If you have any questions or inquiries as you’re reading, please don’t hesitate to give us a ring at 833-854-2575!

Performance

First of all, we need to examine the performance features that get these luxury compact SUVs moving. When it comes to the BMW X3, you’ll be satisfied with the available 3.0L turbocharged inline 6-cylinder powerhouse that achieves a whopping 355-hp and 365 lb.-ft. of torque for an exciting drive down route 61. Of course, if you decide to stick with the standard 2.0L turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine, you’ll be gifted with a fuel economy of 23/30 MPG city/hwy1, so you don’t have to worry about constantly stopping for gas on your weekend getaways. Do you have a small fishing boat, camper, or off-road vehicles that you need to haul? Luckily for you, this compact SUV also has up to a 4,400-lb. towing capacity, allowing you to pack up whatever you need for your next camping trip. On the other hand, the Lexus RX comes with a 3.5L V6 engine that produces a measly 295-hp and 268 lb.-ft. of torque, so you might have to press the accelerator a little harder to receive the power that you’ve been looking for. Additionally, you’ll only receive a fuel rating of 20/27 MPG city/hwy2, meaning you’ll have to spend some extra time and money at the pump. Last, but not least, this compact SUV only offers up to a 3500-lb. towing capacity3, so you won’t be able to trailer as much to your lake house.

Interior

It’s time to take a step inside of the BMW X3 and the Lexus RX to see how they differ. You and your favorite copilot will be able to adjust to your perfect cruising position with the available 14-way power front sport seats in the X3. New aches and pains after a long drive are now a thing of the past! If you’re on the taller side, you’ve probably knocked your noggin a time or two entering and exiting a vehicle. Well, with the X3, you’ll have 41.1 inches of front head room at your disposal, so you don’t have to fret. Unfortunately, the only option in the RX are the standard 10-way driver’s seat and 8-way front passenger’s seat, so you won’t be able to adjust to your optimal position for a long commute or road trip. Not to mention, the meager 39.4 inches of head room makes it difficult to get in and out of the RX without hitting your head, so you’ll need to be careful.

We hope this overview helped you understand why the X3 takes the win in this 2019 BMW X3 vs 2018 Lexus RX in Baton Rouge, LA, comparison! You can join one of our staff members on an unforgettable test drive here at Brian Harris BMW during our business hours. We hope to see you walking through our dealership doors in the near future!

I worked with Cassie and the service I received couldn’t have been better. It was as close to a contactless delivery as one could get. I was in and out in 2 hours. The finance manager, Clifton, was exceptional. Explained absolutely everything. This is the 4th BMW I’ve owned, but my first experience with Brian Harris, and I would recommend them to anyone in the market for a BMW.

My service advisor Fred was really helpful. I’m really happy I got the wheel and tire protection package when I bought my bmw. Between having that and a good service advisor, I haven’t had any headaches using bmw service. The only negative thing I could even think of would be that the free cold drinks could be a little colder...

I’m a Mercedes woman at heart, but I purchased my first BMW ever from them, and I can say that I feel so confident about my purchase. I got an amazing deal on a great vehicle. Thank you Wade and the team at Brian Harris BMW!

IMy scheduled appointment was made around my schedule. I was greeted with respect as I pulled up at the scheduled time. I was checked in immediately. I latter received a video detailing the work on my vehicle and how everything looked on my car by the mechanic. When the worked was completed, I received a call and a text to pick up my car with the charge for service. I was humbled by the attention given to me and the service of my car. I am pleased with the service of staff at BMW in the service department.
