2014 BMW X5 vs. 2014 Toyota Land Cruiser Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW X5 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Toyota Land Cruiser, 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 Toyota Land Cruiser.

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 Toyota Land Cruiser.

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 Toyota Land Cruiser, 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. In this case, the BMW X5 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Dimensions
The BMW X5 is a little narrower than the Toyota Land Cruiser, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the BMW X5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the BMW X5 and the Toyota Land Cruiser are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Toyota Land Cruiser 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 Toyota Land Cruiser.

Utility
The BMW X5 has less seating than the Toyota Land Cruiser, making the Toyota Land Cruiser the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The BMW X5 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW X5 than that of the Toyota Land Cruiser.
