Are you on the hunt for your next luxury 4-door vehicle? No doubt, you'll come across the 2021 BMW 2 Series and 2021 Lexus IS. Both of these luxury vehicles are known for their safety features and modern technology. So, how do you know which ride might be best for you?

To introduce you to both vehicles and compare them for drivers around Rochester Hills, Oakland Township, and Sterling Heights, BMW of Rochester Hills has put together this comparison guide.

BMW 2 Series vs Lexus IS: Technology

In this day and age, having technology in our vehicles is a must, and the 2 Series and IS are no exception. Both of these vehicles come standard with a touchscreen infotainment system.

The infotainment systems found in the Lexus IS and the BMW 2 Series allow for the standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, which allows you to hook your smartphone up to your vehicle and use your favorite apps like navigation, streaming music, and more.

The BMW 2 Series begins to pull away from the Lexus IS when you get into the available 10.25-inch Dynamic Digital Instrument Cluster. This modern take on an instrument cluster includes navigation information, speed, and customizable modes.

The BMW 2 Series also has an available full-color Head-up Display, which shows important information right on your windshield. You never have to take your eyes off the road for navigation information, speed limit, and more.

Dimensions: BMW 2 Series vs Lexus IS

When you're zipping through a city or town and looking for that perfect parallel parking spot, the size of your vehicle can matter. You can move through traffic easily with the compact Lexus IS. The Lexus IS comes to about 185.4-inches in length, so you have the size to maneuver.

However, if you really want a vehicle that is both city and parking-friendly, the BMW 2 Series is slightly better-suited. The 2 Series is 178.5-inches long, so you'll fit in those smaller parallel parking spaces more easily.

Safety and Driver Assist Features in the BMW 2 Series vs Lexus IS

The IS and 2 Series have no shortage of safety and driver-assistive features. The suite of safety and driver-assistive features in the Series 2 is called the Active Driving Assistant. The IS suite is called the Lexus Safety System+ 2.5™. Some features standard in both of these safety suites are:

  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Frontal Collision Warning with City Collision Mitigation
  • Speed Limit Information

While the IS and the 2 Series have plenty of safety features, the 2 Series takes safety one step further. The 2 Series has the standard BMW Assist eCall™ with Emergency Request (SOS button) and Enhanced Automatic Collision Notification. If you get into an accident, this system will reach out to first responders and send someone to help.
