Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac XT6 than in the BMW X5, 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 X5 and the Cadillac XT6.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW X5 as you will with the Cadillac XT6, 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 X5 is somewhat more expensive than the Cadillac XT6. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the BMW X5 and the Cadillac XT6 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X5 is much wider than the Cadillac XT6, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The BMW X5 is slightly shorter than the Cadillac XT6, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the BMW X5 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Cadillac XT6.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the BMW X5 is clearly the choice over the Cadillac XT6 for pulling heavy loads. The BMW X5 has a little more horsepower than the Cadillac XT6.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X5 and the Cadillac XT6. The BMW X5 has less cargo space than the Cadillac XT6, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The BMW X5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac XT6.
