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 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. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW X5 M will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz G-Class.

Since the BMW X5 M is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the BMW X5 M, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz G-Class.

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.

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.
