The Lexus RX vs the BMW X5: which is the better SUV?

Consumer Reports gives the 2022 BMW X5 a higher score out of the two SUVs. It gets an overall score of 90, while the 2022 Lexus RX gets an 81. Both SUVs are recommended by Consumer Reports, so either way, you’re getting a solid SUV. Still, the X5 has a higher road-test score, at a nearly perfect 98 to the RX’s 77. However, the RX does have a slight advantage in terms of reliability, scoring a 4/5 to the X5’s 3/5.

Other areas where the BMW X5 excels are braking, routine and emergency handling, and braking. At the same time, headlights in the RX are a little bit better. Another area where the RX shines is its driving control assistance. It comes standard with lane centering assist as well as adaptive cruise control, both of which are only optional on the X5.

While you can’t go wrong with either the 2022 Lexus RX or the 2022 BMW X5, the X5 is a better SUV overall. Yet it will cost you roughly $10,000 more. So is it worth it? That depends on whether a $10,000 difference will be largely noticeable to you. If it doesn’t majorly factor into your decision-making, then you’ll probably be happier with the X5. If, however, you want to keep your budget a bit more conservative, you’ll still love the RX.
