Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Palisade than in the BMW X1, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Hyundai Palisade will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the BMW X1.

Convenience
The BMW X1 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Hyundai Palisade, making it more convenient to drive.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW X1 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Hyundai Palisade. 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 Hyundai Palisade.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X1 is much slimmer than the Hyundai Palisade, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW X1, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Hyundai Palisade.

Handling
The BMW X1 has a smaller turning radius than the Hyundai Palisade, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X1 has a lot less horsepower than the Hyundai Palisade.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the BMW X1 and the Hyundai Palisade are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the BMW X1 seats a lot fewer people than the Hyundai Palisade. The BMW X1 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Hyundai Palisade.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the BMW X1 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Palisade.
