Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    BMW 3 Series

    • Styling. Low, sporty and all things fun! M Sport variant looks delicious.
    • Punchy engines. Pick the petrol or the diesel, both promise to please with performance.
    • Quality. Interior now feels like a scaled-down 5 Series in earnest.

    Lexus ES

    • Its drop dead gorgeous.
    • Much improved interior.
    • Boot space (for a hybrid).
    • Not boring to drive (for a CVT).
    • Quiet cabin.

    BMW 3 Series

    • Silly feature omissions: 360° camera, keyless entry, Android Auto - all missing.
    • Low seating and tight kneeroom means it’s less than ideal for the chauffeur-driven.
    • Most of the 480-litre boot is taken up by the spare wheel.

    Lexus ES

    • Lack of headroom for tall passengers.
    • Touch screen interface is confusing.
    • No Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.
    • Still priced a little high.
