Sedans like the BMW 5 Series and Lexus GS come with high-end designs for maximum comfort and plenty of modern innovations. However, only one can be the car to take you around the Montgomery, Auburn, and Prattville area each day.

To help you decide between the BMW 5 Series vs. Lexus GS, our BMW of Montgomery team takes a closer look inside and under the hood of these two elegant and athletic sedans below!

Extra Muscle to Give You Thrilling Performance

Both cars, from their body designs to their various mechanical systems, are created to give you dynamic performance and engaging drives. Where you'll notice the big difference in performance is the pure power that they each hold within their engines.

The Lexus GS comes equipped with a 3.5L V6 engine, which produces 311 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. This is also paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. While that is a great deal of strength for a sedan, it can't quite match the power you will get to enjoy in the 2021 BMW 5 Series.

Push off the line when the light turns green and swiftly pass others on the highway in the 540i trim level, which is powered by the 3.0L BMW TwinPower turbo inline 6-cylinder engine. This generates 335 horsepower and 331 lb-ft. Even more sporty performance is found in the M550i xDrive trim of the 5 Series, which is powered by the mighty 523-horsepower 4.4L BMW M TwinPower turbo V8 engine.

5 Series vs GS: Interior Design & Features

When you open the doors to either of these sedans, you'll see right away what makes them luxury cars. They come with premium materials and plenty of standard features. While each have a standard moonroof and interior ambient lighting, a little added sophistication is given in the BMW 5 Series with its standard fineline ridge wood trim.

Plus, the 2021 5 Series also has the 16-way front sport seats, which include 2-way power side bolsters and 4-way lumbar support. With the Lexus GS, there are the standard 10-way power front seats, so you won't be able to fine-tune them as much as you can in the BMW sedan.

The Added Convenience of Technology

With your new car, too, you can enjoy the latest advancements in technology to enjoy a more connected and enjoyable commute. With either car, you will have your world literally at your fingertips, thanks to their 12.3-inch center touchscreens.

On these, you can access your smartphone applications, adjust in-car systems, and even look up directions on their standard navigation systems. Only with the 2021 BMW 5 Series, though, will your vehicle act as your own personal assistant.

Through Intelligent Personal Assistant, which comes standard with the 5 Series, you can ask questions and make requests while driving and the car will accommodate to your needs. This makes it easy for you to warm up the cabin if you are cold or find a place to eat if you get hungry along your travels.

While the Lexus GS is a great luxury car, it is hard to pass up on the performance, personalized convenience, and overall comfort of the 2021 BMW 5 Series.
