2014 BMW X1 vs. 2014 Subaru Tribeca Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW X1 than in the Subaru Tribeca. The BMW X1 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Subaru Tribeca, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the BMW X1, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Subaru Tribeca.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW X1 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Subaru Tribeca. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the BMW X1 is much higher than that for the Subaru Tribeca.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X1 is much slimmer than the Subaru Tribeca, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW X1, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Subaru Tribeca.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the BMW X1 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Subaru Tribeca.

Handling
The BMW X1 has a larger turning radius than the Subaru Tribeca, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW X1 has a little less horsepower than the Subaru Tribeca.

Utility
The BMW X1 has less seating than the Subaru Tribeca, making the Subaru Tribeca the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The BMW X1 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Subaru Tribeca.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW X1 than that of the Subaru Tribeca.
