BMW X5 vs. Lexus RX 350: Warranty Coverage

2021 Lexus RX F Sport Ultra White

Both the Lexus vs. BMW warranty coverage options are similar, offering a 4-year/50,000-mile New Vehicle Warranty to keep you worry-free while driving in and around Venice. 

Although the BMW combines its new car warranty with powertrain coverage, Lexus separates its Lexus Powertrain Warranty. This is a good thing, because it extends your powertrain coverage up to 6 years or 70,000 miles (whichever comes first).
