BMW X1 vs. Lexus NX 300 Performance

Nowadays, there are more options than ever, whether you're shopping for luxury, SUVs or both. BMW and Lexus find themselves at the top of those realms, delivering quality luxury SUVs for the modern driver. You want the best option, though, and that's where we at Edmonton BMW come in. We've compared the 2019 BMW X1 with the 2020 Lexus NX 300, focusing on performance and design features, to show you why BMW shines bright in the luxury SUV segment.


The Lexus NX 300 is centered around its 2.0 L 4-cylinder direct injection turbo-charged engine, and traction control with all-wheel drive, vehicle stability control and more. The BMW X1 matches these features and adds on top, with its own TwinPower turbo 4-cylinder engine and XDrive system making the BMW X1 one of the best SUVs to tackle the winter Alberta roads. It uses a high-quality Steptronic Sport transmission and adaptive suspension to help every edge of this all-round performer. The BMW improves its advantages by adding in some of its sport-style tenets, with an M Sports steering wheel and M Sport brake, for ultimate vehicle control.2019 BMW X1 VS. LEXUS NX 300 DESIGN

Nobody does iconic quite like BMW, and the evidence is further confirmed when you put it against a Lexus. Always staking its claim wherever it goes with the classic kidney front grille, the BMW X1 sets the standard for luxury SUVs. Highlighted by LED projection lights that equally frame the front as they do the rear, along with 19-inch wheels in a distinct Y-spoke factor. The NX 300's conservative styling provides similar streamlined design elements like the X1, but doesn't offer much dynamicism and instead presents a basic styling seen across many SUV brands. The BMW X1 balances whatever you need out of it, style, ruggedness, luxury and more, while the NX 300 sits as a city-oriented SUV that is more at home in urban environments.
