2014 Toyota Land Cruiser vs. 2015 BMW X5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Toyota Land Cruiser 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 Toyota Land Cruiser and the BMW X5.

Convenience
With the BMW X5, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Toyota Land Cruiser, 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 Toyota Land Cruiser 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. The Toyota Land Cruiser will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the BMW X5.

Dimensions
The Toyota Land Cruiser is a little wider than the BMW X5, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Toyota Land Cruiser takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW X5.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Toyota Land Cruiser doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW X5.

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

Utility
The Toyota Land Cruiser offers greater seating capacity than the BMW X5, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Toyota Land Cruiser has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the BMW X5.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Toyota Land Cruiser is not as nearly as extensive as that of the BMW X5.
