2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport vs. 2015 BMW X5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Land Rover Range Rover Sport offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the BMW X5, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Land Rover Range Rover Sport and the BMW X5.

Convenience
With the BMW X5, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Land Rover Range Rover Sport, 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 Sport 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 Sport and the BMW X5 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Land Rover Range Rover Sport is much wider than the BMW X5, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW X5.

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

Handling
The Land Rover Range Rover Sport 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 Sport is clearly the choice over the BMW X5 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport greatly out-muscles the BMW X5.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Land Rover Range Rover Sport and the BMW X5. The Land Rover Range Rover Sport has less cargo space than the BMW X5, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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