Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW X1 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Toyota Venza, with comparable head- and legroom. The BMW X1 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Venza.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW X1 as you will with the Toyota Venza, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). Whether you pick the BMW X1 or the Toyota Venza, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Toyota Venza.

Dimensions
The BMW X1 is a little narrower than the Toyota Venza, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. 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 Toyota Venza.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the BMW X1 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Toyota Venza.

Performance
The BMW X1 has a little more horsepower than the Toyota Venza.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X1 and the Toyota Venza. The BMW X1 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Toyota Venza.

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