Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Bronco Sport than in the BMW X1, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Ford Bronco Sport offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW X1, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the BMW X1, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Bronco Sport.

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 X1 is somewhat more expensive than the Ford Bronco Sport. 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 X1 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Ford Bronco Sport.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X1 is much slimmer than the Ford Bronco Sport, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the BMW X1 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Ford Bronco Sport.

Performance
The BMW X1 has a little less horsepower than the Ford Bronco Sport.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the BMW X1 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Ford Bronco Sport.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X1 and the Ford Bronco Sport. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the BMW X1 as you will in the Ford Bronco Sport.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW X1 than that of the Ford Bronco Sport.
