When you choose a luxury SUV, you want to be sure that you are getting the most out of everything that vehicle comes with. BMW of Escondido, in Escondido, CA, knows that luxury vehicles are not created equally, and we want to make sure you are choosing the one that meets the most of your needs. We are here to help by providing the information that you need on two of the most popular luxury SUVs: Our own BMW X5, and the Lexus RX
To start, the X5 provides you with more horsepower as a base model, plus a great towing capacity. If you are looking for something to cruise Route 5 past Carlsbad and Encinitas, CA, then the X5 will prove more exhilarating. It even has firmer handling, giving driving enthusiasts a true feeling of control over the vehicle. The Lexus RX comes up short for horsepower in their base model, and has a softer, more boring, suspension that doesn’t provide as sharp of a response.
The X5 offers seven seats with an optional third-row seating, as compared to the five offered by the RX. Following the trend, the X5 offers 35.8 cubic feet of cargo space, and the RX only offers 18.4 cubic feet. The X5 offers bigger windows and doors to make entry and exit easier for passengers. By providing an option for more seats, and the convenience features, the BMW meets all the needs of your passengers.
Meeting all your performance and passenger needs is important, but nothing compares to the importance of safety. The X5 received a five-star rating in frontal crash tests done by the National highway Safety Administration (NHTSA), while the RX only received a four-star rating. Making every effort to keep passengers safe is essential for car manufacturers. We know that driving in cities, such as San Diego, CA, can be stressful, but knowing your vehicle can handle the worst should encourage a sense of ease.
