2014 Land Rover Range Rover vs. 2015 BMW X5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Land Rover Range Rover than in the BMW X5. The Land Rover Range Rover offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW X5, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
With the BMW X5, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Land Rover Range Rover, 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 Land Rover Range Rover will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW X5, 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. Both the Land Rover Range Rover and the BMW X5 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Land Rover Range Rover is much wider than the BMW X5, 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 Land Rover Range Rover, which is slightly longer than the BMW X5.

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

Handling
The Land Rover Range Rover has a smaller turning radius than the BMW X5, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Land Rover Range Rover is clearly the choice over the BMW X5 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Land Rover Range Rover greatly out-muscles the BMW X5.

Utility
The Land Rover Range Rover has less seating than the BMW X5, making the BMW X5 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Land Rover Range Rover has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the BMW X5.

Warranty
The Land Rover Range Rover comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW X5.
