Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW X7 than in the Toyota Land Cruiser. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the BMW X7 and the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the BMW X7, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Toyota Land Cruiser.

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 X7 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Land Cruiser. 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 Toyota Land Cruiser.

Dimensions
The BMW X7 is about the same width as the Toyota Land Cruiser. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the BMW X7, which is slightly longer than the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Handling
The BMW X7 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Toyota Land Cruiser, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Toyota Land Cruiser, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the BMW X7. The BMW X7 has a little less horsepower than the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the BMW X7 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Utility
The BMW X7 has less seating than the Toyota Land Cruiser, making the Toyota Land Cruiser the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The BMW X7 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW X7 than that of the Toyota Land Cruiser.
