Should I Buy a BMW?

Blueish BMW X5

Should I buy a BMW? If you’re asking yourself this question, you’re already well on your way to a more enjoyable daily drive. Still, any doubts are bound to linger. Which is better: BMW or Mercedes-Benz? Who wins out when we compare Audi vs. BMW or Lexus vs. BMW in depth?  Anyone who’s spent time behind the wheel of the Ultimate Driving Machine® will tell you the same thing. The BMW features and benefits make our models champions of Riverside-area highways.

BMW Features & Benefits: Performance

The BMW brand has long been synonymous with the ultimate in performance. Here’s what our neighbors in Rye and Cos Cob tend to get excited about today:

  • Engine and Powertrain Options: Choosing BMW means selecting from a wide range of powerful, dependable powertrains, including their celebrated 4- and 6-cylinder turbocharged engines, and their increasingly-popular hybrid powertrains.
  • Performance-Tuned Drivetrains: Most models are available with either rear-wheel drive or BMW xDrive AWD, and that means you’ll enjoy superior control and invigorating performance on every drive.
  • M Performance Models: At the top of the line, you’ll encounter the celebrated M Performance models like the BMW M5. The latter can accelerate from 0 to 60 in a blistering 3.2 seconds, and many other models are available with M-inspired features and packages.

BMW vs. Mercedes-Benz: Although drivers may expect these two German rivals to stay neck-and-neck on the racetrack, the truth is that Mercedes-Benz is a relative latecomer to the world of high-performance consumer automobiles. BMW offers superior performance at a wider range of price points.

BMW Features & Benefits: Technology & Comfort

Although BMW performance is one of the brand’s biggest selling points, it’s not the only reason that more and more drivers are answering “Yes!” when they’re asked, “Should I buy a BMW?” Here’s what else you should look for when you’re inside the cabin on your test drive:

  • BMW iDrive® Infotainment: Most models in the lineup come with 7-inch, 10.25-inch, or 12.3-inch touchscreens, and most are running on iDrive® 7.0. This simple yet sophisticated interface connects you with touchscreen buttons, hard keys, and a rotary controller, so entertainment is always at your fingertips.
  • Top-Tier Technology for All: Models like the new BMW X5 and the new BMW 5-Series offer head-up displays, heated front and rear seats, wireless device charging, rear-seat entertainment systems, interactive driver displays, and so much more. No matter what you desire, you can get it in a BMW.
  • Safety and Drive Assistance: BMW has never sacrificed safety for style, and models like the X5 come standard with front and rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking, and much more. Even where the BMW Active Driving Assist® doesn’t come standard, it’s almost always optional.

BMW Brand Comparison: Value & Luxury

Are you wondering how BMW compares to major competitors? You’re not alone. Here, we’ve covered J.D Power reliability scores, warranty coverage, and complimentary maintenance for three popular matchups:


  • BMW scored highly in J.D. Power’s latest reliability study, with just 122 problems reported per 100 vehicles sold (PP100).
  • Lexus came out ahead, but Audi and Mercedes-Benz both scored lower with 124 PP100 and 134 PP100, respectively.

Warranty Coverage and Complimentary Maintenance

  • The BMW Limited New Car Warranty protects you for 4 years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. Comparing BMW vs. Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, or Audi, they’re all equals at first glance.
  • However, since BMW offers complimentary car maintenance for 3 years or 36,000 miles, our new vehicles come with a much lower cost-to-own! Lexus and Audi only offer free maintenance for 1 year or 10,000 miles, and Mercedes-Benz doesn’t offer complimentary maintenance at all.
