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 Land Rover Defender, 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 X6 is somewhat more expensive than the Land Rover Defender. 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 X6 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Land Rover Defender.

The BMW X6 is about the same width as the Land Rover Defender. If you go with the BMW X6, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Land Rover Defender.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the BMW X6 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Land Rover Defender.

Performance
With the Land Rover Defender, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the BMW X6. The BMW X6 has a little less horsepower than the Land Rover Defender.

Utility
