2016 BMW X6 vs. 2016 Volkswagen Touareg Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen Touareg than in the BMW X6, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Volkswagen Touareg will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the BMW X6.

Convenience
With the Volkswagen Touareg, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW X6, 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 X6 is somewhat more expensive than the Volkswagen Touareg. 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 X6 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Volkswagen Touareg.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X6 is much wider than the Volkswagen Touareg, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the BMW X6 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen Touareg.

Drivetrain
The BMW X6 has much lower torque than the Volkswagen Touareg, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW X6 has a larger turning radius than the Volkswagen Touareg, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Volkswagen Touareg is clearly the choice over the BMW X6 for pulling heavy loads. The BMW X6 has a little more horsepower than the Volkswagen Touareg.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X6 and the Volkswagen Touareg. The BMW X6 has less cargo space than the Volkswagen Touareg, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW X6 than that of the Volkswagen Touareg.
