BMW X5 Vs. Range Rover in Edmonton, Alberta
BMW doesn’t have the only luxury SUVs on the market, so how do they stack up against the competition? The BMW X5 is one of the crown jewels of the BMW SUV lineup, while the Land Rover Range Rover has been a mainstay of the premium SUV market for years. Across their design, price point and performance there are many comparable elements between the two, with ones that clearly show the victor on top.

SUVs all have a similar box-styled body type that give the vehicle its ample interior size and impressive exterior design,, but with the easy ability to act both as a family option or off-roading vehicle with their comprehensive capability. While both SUVs, the BMW X5 and Range Rover attack their own designs in two separate ways. The Land Rover takes the “box” style at its word, delivering a rigid vehicle shape that creates firm lines that clearly separate the box of the body from the hood. On the other hand, the BMW X5 is a much more streamlined and aerodynamic option, with style and lines that flow seamlessly from back to front and don’t stop and start like the Range Rover’s stiff design.
When it comes to price, it’s not even a competition to get the best vehicle at the best price. The Land Rover MSRP starts at a whopping $112,000 for the base level of the Range Rover, that’s without any add-ons.
