INTERIOR
Lexus GX 460

Lexus and BMW: two brands known for their premium interiors and driver prioritization. In comparing the GX 460 and the X5, this statement is especially true. Both models are built to accommodate family-oriented drivers like you.

Additional Space on Board

The Lexus GX 460 features room for your extended family. There’s standard seating for seven with three rows of comfortable seats. Not only will passengers in the back seats be able to stretch their legs, but even taller drivers can relax behind the wheel with 41.7 inches of front legroom.

Unfortunately, the BMW X5 only comes with seating for five. While a third row is available, the front seats may feel a bit more cramped with only 39.8 inches of legroom.

Enjoy Premium Comfort

In addition to all that passenger space, there are premium amenities available for this luxury Lexus SUV, including semi-aniline leather seats, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, and ventilated, power-adjustable seats. Plus, with folding seats in both the second and third rows, you’ll have tons of cargo room.

The BMW X5 also offers leather upholstery, power-adjustable seats, and lots of cargo room.

SAFETY
Lexus GX 460

The GX 460 and the X5 are reliable in more ways than one. On top of providing comforting interior features, these SUVs have standard safety suites that will help keep you out of harm’s way. Your protection extends far beyond your typical routes in the Lexus, though.

Comprehensive Safety Suites

To give you peace of mind, the Lexus GX 460 is equipped with Lexus Safety System+. This safety suite comes standard on every trim level and helps prevent accidents with the following driver-assist technology:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Departure Alert
  • High-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
  • Intelligent High Beams

While this system offers more awareness as you drive, other advanced safety features are also standard, providing even more assurance behind the wheel. These technologies include a Blind Spot Monitor with Rear-Cross Traffic Alert and Trailer Sway Control.

The BMW X5 comes with several similar safety features; however, you’ll only find an advanced cruise control feature and Trailer Sway Control on the GX 460.

Off-Road? No Biggie.

To keep you in control in tough driving conditions, full-time 4-wheel drive with Active Traction Control comes standard on the Lexus. For an even more stable drive, you can also add the available Multi-Terrain Select system and Crawl Control.

The BMW X5 is available with two drivetrains: sDrive (rear-wheel drive) and xDrive (all-wheel drive). Although an X5 outfitted with xDrive will help you navigate through inclement weather confidently, the 4-wheel drivetrain in the Lexus may be better suited for off-road adventures.

TECHNOLOGY
Lexus GX 460

Whether you’re heading to work, running errands by yourself, or taking the kids to Grandma’s for the day, some entertainment can make the drive fly by. Good thing the Lexus and the BMW are jam-packed with advanced technologies.

An Easy Connection

Both luxury SUVs come with some state-of-the-art technology. Get behind the wheel of either model, and you’ll find a sleek touchscreen on the dashboard. From there, you can stream music, safely make hands-free calls, and get directions with features such as:

  • Bluetooth® compatibility
  • Apple CarPlay®
  • Android Auto™
  • Voice Command
  • Navigation

While the Lexus GX 460 and the BMW X5 share most of these features, only the Lexus is compatible with Amazon Alexa. It gives you the ability to control your smart devices back home while you’re on the road and so much more.

A Personal Listening Experience

When you’ve got the open road ahead, you’ll want to fully immerse yourself in your favorite entertainment. Whether it's music, podcasts, or audiobooks, the available sound systems on either SUV will make you hear every decibel.

The BMW’s available Harman Kardon® 16-speaker Surround Sound Audio system and the Lexus’ available Mark Levinson® 17-speaker Premium Surround Sound system are elite. They’ll transport you into the song, into the conversation, or into the plot of whatever entertainment you choose.
