2019 BMW 8 Series vs. 2019 Lexus LC


For a brand new model like the 2019 BMW 8-Series, it definitely has met the greatest expectations of car buyers in St. James. Its strong engine lineup adds more points to be desired for this ride. When it comes to the 2019 Lexus LC, the maker included performance and handling enhancements. On top of that, Apple CarPlay, Amazon Alexa, and Wi-Fi hotspot are also a standard for this luxury sports car.

Design & Style

Gifted with a spacious trunk and a comfortable room to seat up to four people, there is indeed a lot of praises given to the 2019 BMW 8-Series in terms of design and style. There are plenty of modern elements, all throughout, apart from the use of premium quality materials for its cabin’s construction. That sturdiness is also evident in its solidly built body.

The Lexus LC, like the 8-Series, also has a four-seating capacity. It has 20-inch wheels, with LED exterior lights to match its body. It has also been fitted with an adjustable suspension. Inside it, you will notice how the sporty driving position feels fresh and modern for this ride. The cabin’s size is not as impressive as expected though.

Technology & Safety

For the 2019 BMW 8-Series, there is the basic iDrive infotainment system which is common to all BMWs. This user-friendly system supports the functions of many of its technologies, the navigation system included. There is a long list of standard driver assistance features for this car, which include a head-up display, a surround-view camera, automatic parallel parking assist, pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, rear cross traffic alert, and BMW’s Active Protection System, among others.

There are a lot of things that the 2019 Lexus LC lacks when it comes to the technology aspect. Topping the list is its disappointing and unreliable infotainment system. The navigation system is subpar for this supposed luxury ride as well. As for driver aids, you will notice how its rearview camera and adaptive cruise control that overreacts with a simple touch of the menu.


The 2019 Lexus LC yields results of up to 16mpg for city driving and 27mpg for highway driving. It is equipped with a V8, 5.0-liter engine that can power up to 471 horses at 398lb-ft of torque. In the case of the 2019 BMW 8-Series, fuel efficiency ratings reach up 18mpg for city driving and 26mpg for the highway. Its engine is powerful, though as it can power up to 523 horses.

The Bottom Line

While the 2019 Lexus LC has a promising engine, it does not really exceed expectations of those looking for luxury sports cars. The 8-Series wins in almost all aspects, considering all the great features loaded in it. The BMW deserves the applaud its getting from car lovers.
