The BMW X1 vs. The Lexus NX in Jacksonville, FL

Florida drivers who are looking for a new and innovative luxury crossover SUV model will find an array of options when shopping our new inventory here at Tom Bush BMW. But if you're in the market for a compact crossover model that expresses style, versatility, and exquisite comfort, the BMW X1 sports activity vehicle is a fantastic choice for young professionals and small families. But how does it compare to one of its top rivals, the Lexus NX? Here's how new crossover seekers will benefit from choosing the BMW X1 over the Lexus NX.

Performance and Power

For drivers looking for quality power in a standard trim level of the BMW X1, they will receive 228-horsepower with the 2.0-Liter TwinPower Turbo I4 engine which hits top speeds of 131 mph gains 23 mpg city and 32 mpg highway. Outstanding for the daily work commute from Jacksonville Beach to the city or when taking those weekend road trips to Gainesville.

The Lexus NX comes standard with a 235 horse-power I4 engine, however, it receives less fuel efficiency with 22 mpg city and 28 mpg highway which may not cut it if you're looking to optimize your daily commute. It also only reaches a top track speed of 124 mph, and if you're looking to go the distance, the BMW X1 offers a 16.1-gallon fuel tank, whereas the Lexus NX provides only a 15.9-gallon fuel tank.


For drivers who are looking to save money on their new vehicle purchase, the starting MSRP for the BMW X1 is $33,900 and the starting price for the standard Lexus NX 300 is $36,185. Also, from consumer reviews on Kelley Bluebook, the BMW X1 received a 9 out of 10 rating, the Lexus NX only received an 8.6 out of 10.


For drivers who are looking for more comfortable space for themselves and passengers, the BMW X1 gives 37-inches of legroom for rear seat passengers compared to 36.1-inches in the NX. Headroom as well is a major factor for new crossover seekers who don't wish to feel cramped throughout their travels. The BMW X1 holds 41.9 cubic inches of headroom. The Lexus NX provides 37.4-inches of headroom which is a drastic difference if you are a taller driver.

Drivers who are looking for more cargo space for their weekend beach gear when hitting Fernandina Beach or Saint Augustine on the weekends will find their desired volume with the BMW X1. This SAV provides a total cargo space of 58.7 cubic feet which is much greater than the offered 54.6 cubic feet of cargo space in the Lexus NX.
