2015 BMW X5 vs. 2015 Porsche Macan Review

Comparison Review

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). The BMW X5 is somewhat more expensive than the Porsche Macan. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the BMW X5 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Porsche Macan.

The BMW X5 is about the same width as the Porsche Macan. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the BMW X5, which is slightly longer than the Porsche Macan.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the BMW X5 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Porsche Macan.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the BMW X5 is clearly the choice over the Porsche Macan for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X5 has a lot less horsepower than the Porsche Macan.

Utility
The BMW X5 offers greater seating capacity than the Porsche Macan, 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 Porsche Macan.
