Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW X5 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Toyota Sequoia, with comparable head- and legroom. The BMW X5 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Sequoia.

Convenience
The BMW X5 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Toyota Sequoia, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Toyota Sequoia. 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 X5 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Toyota Sequoia.

Dimensions
The BMW X5 is a little narrower than the Toyota Sequoia, 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 X5, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Toyota Sequoia.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the BMW X5 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota Sequoia.

Handling
The BMW X5 has a larger turning radius than the Toyota Sequoia, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the BMW X5 will do just as well as the Toyota Sequoia, since they have about the same towing capacity. The BMW X5 has a little less horsepower than the Toyota Sequoia.

Utility
The BMW X5 has less seating than the Toyota Sequoia, making the Toyota Sequoia the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The BMW X5 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Toyota Sequoia.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW X5 than that of the Toyota Sequoia.
