2020 BMW X1
The 2020 BMW X1 gives you all you’d want from an SUV, thanks to the peppy performance and sizable, comfortable interior found in this entry-level BMW X model. Its small stature offers quick acceleration and power throughout the streets, thanks to its BMW TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder petrol engine and the Steptronic Sport transmission. The xDrive system solidies its SUV utility by keeping it firm and in control over rough terrain. This is a luxurious sport vehicle that boasts a slick design in a small frame, without skimping out on its internals. High-tech features fill the interior, including state-of-the-art display and driver controls like BMW Head-Up display, Driving and Parking Assistant, wireless charging, and Apple CarPlay connectivity.
2020 Lexus RX 350
The 2020 Lexus RX 350 offers a heavy dose of power paired with a large frame, and delivers all the premium features you’d expect from an SUV at this level. The exterior design is striking, with its chiseled shell showcasing several sharp lines that are unmistakable on the road. The Lexus RX 350 is a large-scale SUV that may offer a large dose of performance, but its utility suffers as it doesn’t present as much interior roominess as its exterior might suggest—making it substantially less versatile than the X1.
The BMW Advantage
The first thing you’ll notice is the huge price disparity between the two, with the 2020 Lexus RX 350 almost $15,000 more than the 2020 BMW X1. The RX 350 might offer a bit more power, but this large SUV isn’t worth its larger price tag compared to the capable and utilitarian X1. Both vehicles may pride themselves as utility vehicles great for commuting and family shuttling, but the BMW X1 provides a more roomy interior, despite its slighter frame. The 2019 X1 offers 2,866L of passenger volume and 1,662L of interior cargo space, while the 2019 RX 350 only has 2,823L and 1,579L, respectively. That means that while smaller and seemingly less fit for larger amounts of storage, the X1 is better designed and provides more space. For a great price and all the interior space you need, the BMW X1 has you covered.
