2013 BMW X5 M vs. 2014 Toyota Land Cruiser Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW X5 M offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Toyota Land Cruiser, with comparable head- and legroom. The Toyota Land Cruiser offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW X5 M, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Toyota Land Cruiser requires fewer stops at the gas station than the BMW X5 M, making it more convenient to drive.

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 is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Land Cruiser. 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 Toyota Land Cruiser.

Dimensions
The BMW X5 M is a little wider than the Toyota Land Cruiser, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The BMW X5 M is slightly shorter than the Toyota Land Cruiser, which may make it easier to park.

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

Handling
The BMW X5 M 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 M for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X5 M greatly out-muscles the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the BMW X5 M seats a lot fewer people than the Toyota Land Cruiser. The BMW X5 M 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 M than that of the Toyota Land Cruiser.
