Interior & Design

2016 Lexus IS Interior & Design 2016 BMW Interior Seating

Enjoy the many standard interior amenities of the 2016 Lexus IS 200t. You'll discover excellent craftsmanship with the standard leather-trimmed steering wheel and shift knob, which matches well with the optional perforated leather-trimmed interior. You'll be able to find perfect positioning as well with the standard 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat, and your front-seat passenger will enjoy an 8-way poweradjustable seat as well. While the BMW 3 Series offers you plenty of amenities, you'll discover that this Lexus matches or surpasses it in every way.

Technology & Safety

2016 Lexus IS Technology and Safety Features 2016 BMW Safety and Technology

While the 2016 Lexus IS and BMW 3 Series both come with a standard Bluetooth® technology package, the comparisons end there. With the exclusive available Lexus Enform App Suite and Lexus Enform Destinations, you can easily access your favorite apps and songs, and use your 24-hour navigation assistance -- something that the BMW 3 Series cannot offer. The 2016 IS provides advanced driver assistive technologies as well, such as the available Pre-Collision System and the standard, Lexusexclusive Lexus Enform Safety Connect system. BMW cannot give you that kind of reassurance.

Performance

2016 Lexus IS Engine Performance 2016 BMW Engine

A quick-shifting 8-speed Sport Direct-Shift transmission with paddle shifters comes standard with the 2016 Lexus IS 200t, while the BMW 3 Series only offers a 6-speed manual transmission. Get behind the wheel of the 2016 IS and you'll enjoy superior horsepower and torque as well. The BMW 3 Series simply cannot match the engineering of the 2016 Lexus IS.

Verdict
