2020 BMW X4 vs. 2020 Lexus NX


The 2020 BMW X4 is an excellent choice if you are in the market for a sporty crossover that offers a thrilling ride. The 2020 X4 has a sloping roofline giving it a coupe feel that helps to enhance its sporty stance. Inside the cabin, you get generous legroom and headspace despite the sloping roofline. All in all, this is a well-rounded car that you will easily fall in love with.

The 2020 Lexus NX is more of an SUV than the crossover model that it is supposed to be. It rides taller than most crossovers in its category. This may be a plus for some car buyers but it does have implications on fuel efficiency. Let us compare these two cars and see how they stack against each other.

Design & Style

With an aggressive stance and flared wheel arches, the 2020 BMW X4 is sure to stand out in any driveway or parking lot. This sporty crossover combines the charisma of a sports car with the striking good looks of a coupe. Inside the cabin, everything has a look and feel that conveys quality. The dashboard is ergonomically designed and instrument controls are within easy reach.

With the 2020 Lexus NX, you get a fairly spacious and comfortable interior cabin. There is generous legroom as well at the front although the rear seat can be a bit of a squeeze. The cabin however is not luxurious as one would expect in a Lexus.

Technology & Safety  

When it comes to tech and safety features, the 2020 BMW X4 has a lot to offer. A 10.3-inch display controls the infotainment system and the car comes with integrated navigation as standard. You also get smartphone connectivity as well as a host of other features.

With the 2020 Lexus NX, you get a touchscreen-controlled infotainment system. While this works most of the time, it can also be sluggish at times and this can be annoying. The display is smaller than that of the 2020 X4 at just 8 inches.


The 2020 BMW X4 comes standard with a twin-turbo 2liter engine that generates 248 hp. For those looking for even more power, a 3-liter twin-turbo is also available. Both engines perform excellently and the car handles superbly. The well-tuned suspension provides for a comfortable ride and the cabin is silent even at high speeds.

The 2020 Lexus NX is powered by a 2-liter turbocharged engine that produces about 235hp. Performance is fairly ok although for car enthusiasts, this is not a crossover that will produce any thrills. Fuel performance is not optimal either, largely due to its design.

The Bottom Line

When comparing vehicles with the pedigree of BMW and Lexus, it often comes down to the details. In this sense, the 2020 X4 outstrips the 2020 NX in areas such as design, engine performance, and tech features. This makes the 2020 BMW X4 the clear winner in this category.
