2015 BMW X5 vs. 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW X5 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Land Rover Range Rover Sport, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the BMW X5 and the Land Rover Range Rover Sport.

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 Land Rover Range Rover Sport.

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). Clearly, the BMW X5 is a better financial choice over the Land Rover Range Rover Sport, when considering MSRP. 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 Land Rover Range Rover Sport have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X5 is much slimmer than the Land Rover Range Rover Sport, 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 Land Rover Range Rover Sport.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the BMW X5 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Land Rover Range Rover Sport.

Handling
The BMW X5 has a larger turning radius than the Land Rover Range Rover Sport, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport is clearly the choice over the BMW X5 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X5 has a lot less horsepower than the Land Rover Range Rover Sport.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X5 and the Land Rover Range Rover Sport. The BMW X5 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Land Rover Range Rover Sport.

Warranty
The BMW X5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Land Rover Range Rover Sport.
