2018 BMW X5 M vs. 2018 Mercedes-Benz G-Class Review

Comparison Review

Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz G-Class than in the BMW X5 M, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Mercedes-Benz G-Class will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the BMW X5 M.

The BMW X5 M requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, making it more convenient to drive.

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 M is a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, when considering MSRP.

Both the BMW X5 M and the Mercedes-Benz G-Class have similar Destination Charges.

With somewhat higher torque, the BMW X5 M transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Mercedes-Benz G-Class.

The BMW X5 M has a smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

With the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the BMW X5 M. When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X5 M greatly out-muscles the Mercedes-Benz G-Class.

In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X5 M and the Mercedes-Benz G-Class. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the BMW X5 M as you will in the Mercedes-Benz G-Class.
