2013 BMW X5 M vs. 2013 Infiniti QX56 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Infiniti QX56 than in the BMW X5 M, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the BMW X5 M and the Infiniti QX56.

Convenience
With the Infiniti QX56, 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 Infiniti QX56, 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. In this case, the BMW X5 M will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Infiniti QX56.

Dimensions
The BMW X5 M is a little narrower than the Infiniti QX56, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the BMW X5 M, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Infiniti QX56.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the BMW X5 M transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Infiniti QX56.

Handling
The BMW X5 M has the same turning radius as the Infiniti QX56, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Infiniti QX56 is clearly the choice over the BMW X5 M for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X5 M greatly out-muscles the Infiniti QX56.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the BMW X5 M seats a lot fewer people than the Infiniti QX56. The BMW X5 M has significantly less cargo capacity than the Infiniti QX56.

Warranty
The Infiniti QX56 offers a little more coverage in its basic warranty than the BMW X5 M.
