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 X7 is somewhat more expensive than the Porsche Macan. 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 X7 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche Macan.

Since the BMW X7 is much wider than the Porsche Macan, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the BMW X7, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Porsche Macan.

The BMW X7 has a larger turning radius than the Porsche Macan, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

When considering towing capacity, the BMW X7 is clearly the choice over the Porsche Macan for pulling heavy loads. The BMW X7 has a little less horsepower than the Porsche Macan.

With its lower torque engine, the BMW X7 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Porsche Macan.
