Is it time to finally get the luxury car you've been wanting for your daily commutes around Montgomery, Auburn, and Prattville? Then, let our BMW of Montgomery team introduce you to the 2021 BMW 3 Series and 2021 Lexus ES.

With these cars, you'll enjoy first-class comforts and lively performance. Since you can only drive one, though, get a closer look at the BMW 3 Series vs. Lexus ES below to see which matches your needs and wants the best.

Which Car Is More Comfortable?

There is no denying that these two models provide a high level of luxury, with their premium designs and variety of amenities. When taking a closer look, though, there is more comfort to be had when riding in the BMW 3 Series.

To start, it has 38.7 inches of headroom in its front row, which is over an inch more than the Lexus ES. There are also 10-way power front sport seats and an automatic climate-control system to let you personally tailor your ride to match your individual preferences.

This climate control even comes with three separate zones, so your passengers can also warm up or cool down their area without messing with your settings. The 2021 ES also has 10-way power front seats, but its climate-control system has just two zone settings. That means, rear passengers won't have as much control over their comfort.

Enjoy Plenty of Tech in Your New Ride

The 2021 BMW 3 Series also feels like a car of the future. It comes with innovative systems, integrated connectivity, and large display screens. The center display, where you can control the infotainment system and display directions, measures in at 8.8 inches. There is also an 8.8-inch instrument cluster display that will keep you informed of vital performance stats as you drive.

Plus, the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant gives you control over the navigation system, your entertainment, and other vehicle settings, all by simply using your voice. The standard tech in 2021 Lexus ES is slightly more basic, with just an 8-inch center display housing its multimedia system and just an LCD multi-information display. It also comes with voice-command capabilities, but its system isn't as intuitive as BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant.

The Feel of Driving the BMW 3 Series vs Lexus ES

These two cars offer optimum comfort while driving. They both also provide overall exciting and confident driving experiences, thanks to their engineering. The feel of the 2021 BMW 3 Series, however, is a little more sporty and agile, thanks to its low center of gravity and lightweight build.

These aspects provide controlled and engaging handling that'll make you feel like a professional driver. Along with that, it also comes packed with plenty of power under the hood. While there are multiple engine options, its standard powertrain has plenty of strength to suffice.

That is because this 2.0L BMW TwinPower Turbo engine generates 255 horsepower and 294 lb-ft of torque. Enjoy quick and controlled acceleration, too, thanks to the 8-speed automatic transmission that comes with Launch Control and paddle shifters.

With the Lexus ES, you'll get a more basic powertrain. While it also features an 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, its standard engine is just a 2.5L 4-cylinder that produces only 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque.

Come Take a Ride in the BMW 3 Series

In review, the 2021 BMW 3 Series is extremely fun to drive around Montgomery, Auburn, and Prattville and gives you exceptional comfort while doing so. While the 2021 Lexus ES does have a lot to like, it doesn't quite reach the same heights as the 3 Series.
