BMW X5 vs Range Rover Sport: Performance

Whether you're heading out for some retail therapy or going to the 5-star Thai restaurant in town, the 2021 BMW X5 and Range Rover Sport can offer you a graceful yet commanding ride. Both vehicles offer all-wheel drive systems, which makes them all-terrain powerhouses.

However, the X5 features Driving Dynamics Control-a 3-mode system to customize your driving style.

  • ECO PRO: Long commute to work? This mode allows for the best fuel economy for your BMW.
  • COMFORT: This default mode gives you a smooth, cozy ride whether you're heading to the grocery store or taking a long trip out of town.
  • SPORT: Want to feel the power of your vehicle? You can experience a sportier drive on the highway with this driving mode.

Both the BMW X5 and Range Rover Sport offer comparable driving control systems.

Electrifying Travels

Both the BMW X5 and Range Rover Sport offer a hybrid trim level that mixes the benefits of an electric vehicle with powerful combustion engines.

However, the X5 has an EPA-estimated 30-mile all-electric range, while the Sport offers 19 miles.1 You wouldn't be able to travel as long on plug-in power in the Sport as you would in the X5.

BMW X5 vs Range Rover Sport: Interior Style

 Hosting a bachelor or bachelorette party at a plush Airbnb? You can pack any decorations, gag gifts, or food and drinks in the spacious cargo areas of these SUVs. While there is comparable passenger room, the X5 provides a maximum of 72.3 cubic feet of cargo volume and the Sport offers 63.7 cubic feet. You'll have less room for the bottles of bubbly in the Sport.

Need room for two more? Both SUVs house third-row seats, which when not in use can be folded flat to give you more cargo space.

How would you like to sink into comfort every time you drive? The BMW X5 offers three seating fabric options:

  • SensaTec upholstery
  • Vernasca Leather upholstery
  • Merino Leather upholstery

On the other hand, the Range Rover Sport features Semi-Aniline leather and Windsor leather seats. While both have luxurious, soft-touch seating, you can customize your BMW a bit more than the Range Rover.

BMW X5 vs Range Rover Sport: Safety

No matter your destination, getting there safe and sound should be top priority. Luckily, the BMW X5 and Range Rover Sport offer plenty of safety features to keep you safe on the road ahead. However, the X5 offers more standard safety features than the Sport, like:

  • Active Protection System
  • Active Blind Spot Detection
  • Automatic high beams

While the Range Rover Sport does offer safety features similar to the BMW X5, they are available in add-on packs rather than coming standard.

BMW X5 vs Range Rover Sport-Which One Are You Driving Home?

It's no secret: the 2021 BMW X5 and Range Rover Sport are both technologically- advanced powerhouses ready to take you where your heart desires. However, thanks to its customizable driving modes, interior comforts, and advanced safety features, we believe the BMW X5 can suit your lifestyle perfectly.
