2014 BMW X1 vs. 2014 Toyota Venza Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Venza than in the BMW X1, due to its greater head- and legroom. The BMW X1 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Venza.

Convenience
The BMW X1 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Toyota Venza, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Toyota Venza. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW X1 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Toyota Venza.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X1 is much slimmer than the Toyota Venza, 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 Toyota Venza.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the BMW X1 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Toyota Venza.

Handling
The BMW X1 has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Venza, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW X1 has a little more horsepower than the Toyota Venza.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X1 and the Toyota Venza. The BMW X1 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Toyota Venza.

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