Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Durango than in the BMW X4, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the BMW X4 and the Dodge Durango.

Convenience
With the Dodge Durango, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW X4, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

The BMW X4 is somewhat more expensive than the Dodge Durango.

The BMW X4 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Durango.
