BMW 3 Series
The BMW 3 series is one of the most popular models in the BMW line-up for good reason. The BMW 340i combines luxury and a sporty style in this sedan to give you a sophisticated look from inside and out. It’ll be hard to forget how well it succeeds on all performance avenues when you’re going 0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds. This is all thanks to its TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder gasoline engine. Enjoy this high level of performance combined with great fuel efficiency, due to its TwinScroll turbocharger system technology. The BMW 3 Series is a true well-rounded vehicle that delivers thrilling performance inside a luxury sports sedan.
The Lexus IS presents athletic curvature around every inch of its body. Its front grille has accented air intakes that announces its sporty look as soon as you come face-to-face with it.
While its sleek look makes it more attuned for city driving, the IS 350’s all-wheel drive system maintains comfortable control over any driving situation. A shaped interior that intends to match the style of the outside utilizes formed curves to cradle your body for a cockpit-like sitting experience. Decked out in top-of-the-line technology, the Lexus IS gives you a 10.3-inch media monitor, digital gauge cluster, surround sound audio and a remote touch feature that lets you control the majority of these technologies just from your finger. The latest Lexus IS gives you a sporty vehicle on the outside with luxurious interior on the inside.
While two seemingly similar sporty sedans on the outside, under the hood of both vehicles tells a different story. The BMW 340i has superior acceleration and power. It rockets out a full second faster from 0-100 km/h than the Lexus IS. As well, the BMW 3 Series edges out the Lexus IS in horsepower while enjoying a sizeable lead in the torque department. Beyond the speed and strength advantages of the BMW sedan, it’s also a much more fuel efficient vehicle than the Lexus. It gives you improved economy on both the city and highway. From both performance and efficiency standpoints, the BMW 3 Series is the clear winner and optimal choice for your next luxury sports sedan.
