2014 BMW X5 vs. 2014 BMW X6 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW X5 than in the BMW X6. The BMW X5 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW X6.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the BMW X5, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW X6.

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 X5 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW X6. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the BMW X5 and the BMW X6 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X5 is much slimmer than the BMW X6, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the BMW X5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW X6.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the BMW X5 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the BMW X6.

Handling
The BMW X5 has the same turning radius as the BMW X6, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the BMW X5 will do just as well as the BMW X6, since they have about the same towing capacity. The BMW X5 has a little less horsepower than the BMW X6.

Utility
The BMW X5 offers greater seating capacity than the BMW X6, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The BMW X5 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the BMW X6.

Warranty
The BMW X5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW X6.
