Not Sure, Which car to buy?

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 NX

    • Standard 3 year/1,00,000km warranty on the car and 5 year/1,50,000km warranty on the hybrid powertrain
    • 14-speaker Mark Levinson sound system is a bliss
    • Hybrid powertrain offers a good balance of performance and real-time efficiency
    • Oh boy, it is a looker! The massive Lexus spindle grille is attention-grabbing

    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 NX

    • City-oriented, not as enthusiastic to drive compared to its German rivals
    • Firm overall ride might not be good for Indian road conditions
    • Overpriced compared to immediate rivals, courtesy CBU (Completely Built Unit) import
