Lexus puts out another video poking fun at the BMW 435i. Using the RC350 as the comparison model, Ming-Jou Chen of Lexus College takes us through a series of standard feature and technical specs to showcase the differences between the two sports coupes.
One of the marketing gimmicks to close the gap between comparable models is to offer more standard features in a premium car than your competitor, and Lexus is banking on that in this video. The comparison goes even further into highly technical details that cater to die hard enthusiasts.
The video is self-explanatory and should be taken as being subjective in its nature, so let’s just focus quickly on the performance of the two cars.
The RC350 is powered by a V6 3.5 liter naturally-aspirated engine producing 310 hp and 277 lb-ft of torque. The 435i gets by with a smaller displacement, 3.0 liter inline-six turbocharged unit with 306 hp (the power will be increased to 320-340 in 2016 when the facelift comes to market) and 295 lb-ft of torque.
Without any further ado, let’s take a look at the video.
