Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW X6 as you will with the BMW X7, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW X6 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW X7. 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 X6 and the BMW X7 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW X6 is about the same width as the BMW X7. The BMW X6 is slightly shorter than the BMW X7, which may make it easier to park.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the BMW X6 will do just as well as the BMW X7, since they have about the same towing capacity. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the BMW X6 and the BMW X7.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the BMW X6 and the BMW X7 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Utility
The BMW X6 has less seating than the BMW X7, making the BMW X7 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
The BMW X6 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW X7.
