Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Grand Cherokee 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 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

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

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 X4 or the Jeep Grand Cherokee, 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 X4 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Dimensions
The BMW X4 is a little narrower than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the BMW X4 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the BMW X4 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The BMW X4 has a larger turning radius than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X4 has a lot less horsepower than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X4 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The BMW X4 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

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