Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Buick Enclave than in the BMW X4, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Buick Enclave will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the BMW X4.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW X4 as you will with the Buick Enclave, 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). The BMW X4 is somewhat more expensive than the Buick Enclave. 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 X4 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Buick Enclave.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X4 is much slimmer than the Buick Enclave, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW X4, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Buick Enclave.

Handling
The BMW X4 has the same turning radius as the Buick Enclave, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X4 has a lot less horsepower than the Buick Enclave.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the BMW X4 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Buick Enclave.

Utility
The BMW X4 has less seating than the Buick Enclave, making the Buick Enclave the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The BMW X4 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Buick Enclave.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW X4 than that of the Buick Enclave.
