2020 BMW X4 vs 2020 Lexus GX Comparison in Norwalk, CA

At a little over $50,000 dollars, the 2020 BMW X4 and 2020 Lexus GX are similarly priced luxury SUVs. One is built with size and pure capacity in mind while the other is designed for refined luxury, powerful performance as well as practicality. If you're trying to decide between a two-row luxury SUV and a three-row premium SUV for your family, we think you'll be better served by BMW. And we'll prove our case below! As you'll see, the 2020 BMW X4 gives you a whole lot more value for your money than the 2020 Lexus GX.

2020 BMW X4 vs. 2020 Lexus GX: Design

They're comparable in starting price, but the 2020 BMW X4 and 2020 Lexus GX are in different segments entirely. The Lexus GX is a three-row SUV with a squared-off, boxy shape designed to increase utility. The BMW X4 is built with a different philosophy -- one centered around performance, driving experience and style. It's a two-row SUV with a sloping rear roofline that lends it a sporty, coupe-inspired look. Yet it'll still provide more than 50 cubic feet of maximum passenger volume! If your family doesn't really need a third row of seats, the 2020 BMW X4 provides a more engaging drive and sportier sculpted looks, yet it's still a versatile, comfortable family car.

And if you do need a third row of seats, step up to the 2020 BMW X5 with the optional third row or the 2020 BMW X7 with a standard third row. The BMW X7 is the most spacious and elegant SUV ever developed by BMW.


BMW X4 Infotainment System

2020 BMW X4 vs. 2020 Lexus GX: Technology

A few extra standard features make the 2020 BMW X4 feel more advanced at the entry level. Unlike the 2020 Lexus GX, the 2020 BMW X4 comes standard with navigation and voice recognition. Just speak your desired destination and the 2020 BMW X4 will help you get there. And when you arrive, standard front & rear parking sensors will give you audible warnings as you approach obstacles in parking. The much bulkier 2020 Lexus GX will be even more difficult to park in cramped parking lots. Yet parking sensors and built-in navigation are both optional extras that'll cost you more on the Lexus SUV!

And at the top of the line, the 2020 BMW X4 comes with features you won't even find as options on any 2020 Lexus GX. For instance, BMW Parking Assistant Plus is a self-parking feature that works with both parallel and perpendicular parking spots. The 2020 Lexus GX lacks the ability to park itself. Neither can you get an optional head-up display on the Lexus GX. Best of all, the 2020 BMW X4 comes totally standard with an all-video gauge cluster for a truly cutting-edge look that puts more information where you need it most. An all-digital gauge cluster isn't even available on the 2020 Lexus GX as an option.

2020 BMW X4 vs. 2020 Lexus GX: Driving Experience

The differences between various kinds of four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive systems are subtle, but the four-wheel drive system on the 2020 Lexus GX is tuned more for versatile off-road capability. That model's available "Off-road package" speaks to this. Meanwhile, xDrive all-wheel drive on the 2020 BMW X4 is designed to provide the most responsive drive with the best handling grip on the pavement. And, in wet or icy weather, it helps keep you in control at all times. And with its standard sport-tuned suspension, the BMW X4 provides a more planted feel and level handling than the comfort-oriented suspension on the Lexus GX. If you prefer a more comfortable ride with a softer suspension for more isolation from bumps in the road, a comfort suspension is available as a no-cost option.

The 2020 BMW X4 is also a better choice for your wallet with far better fuel economy. The thirsty V8 engine under the hood of the 2020 Lexus GX can only achieve 15 city MPG and 19 highway MPG. By contrast, the 2020 BMW X4 xDrive30i will get you 23 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the highway!

2020 BMW X4 vs. 2020 Lexus GX: Performance & Power

The 2020 Lexus GX appears to have a lot more power than the 2020 BMW X4, but there's a lot more to the performance equation than just that. For one thing, the 2020 Lexus GX is much bigger and therefore weighs a lot more. And with it's boxy SUV shape, it's not exactly aerodynamic. As a result, despite its significant advantage in power, it'll still take nearly 8 full seconds to accelerate from 0-60 MPH. The entry-level 2020 BMW X4 xDrive30i only delivers 248 horsepower, but it will still dash from 0-60 MPH in just 6 seconds flat! And if you demand even more power, the new 2020 BMW X4 M40i comes with a powerful turbocharged inline six-cylinder engine. With an awe-inspiring 382 horsepower, the 2020 BMW X4 M40i can make the run from 0-60 MPH in a brief 4.4 seconds. When you need a more comfortable family car that still offers BMW performance, the BMW X4 is available in two flavors to suit your needs.
