2016 BMW X5 M vs. 2016 BMW X6 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW X5 M than in the BMW X6. The BMW X5 M 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
With the BMW X6, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW X5 M, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 M will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW X6, which has a much lower 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 M and the BMW X6 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X5 M 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 M 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 M does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the BMW X6.

Handling
The BMW X5 M 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 M will do just as well as the BMW X6, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X5 M greatly out-muscles the BMW X6.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X5 M and the BMW X6. With the BMW X5 M, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the BMW X6.

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