LEXUS COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE

Lexus Safety System+ 2.5 (LSS+ 2.5) comes standard on the Lexus IS and includes advanced driver assistance features like All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC), Lane Tracing Assist (LTA), and Pre-Collision System (PCS) with Emergency Steering Assist and Intersection Turning Assist. While the BMW 330i offers some similar safety features, many of them require additional cost packages or options-and the 330i doesn't even offer Emergency Steering Assist or Intersection TurningAssist.

 
 


SITUATIONAL AWARENESS

The Lexus IS offers the confidence of standard Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) that audibly alerts the driver to vehicles crossing at the rear, which is a big help in crowded parking lots. The IS also has an available Rear Cross-Traffic Braking that adds automatic braking, increasing the safety of both the vehicle and its occupants. The 330i offers Rear Cross-Traffic Alert as an option but doesn't offer it with automaticbraking.
