2019 BMW X5 vs 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport

Serving Atlanta, GA

If you're looking for a midsize sports utility vehicle, the 2019 BMW X5 and the 2019 Range Rover Sport are two of the best choices available. While both of these SUVs are great choices, the X5 comes out on top. Here, you'll learn how these two models compare in a variety of areas.

Safety and Security

The BMW X5 has Active Protection, which automatically applies the brakes during a collision to prevent secondary crashes and further injuries. The 2019 Range Rover Sport has no post-collision braking system; if a crash deploys the airbags, occupants are left unprotected in the event of a secondary crash. An optional night vision system on the X5 helps drivers detect obstructions, but the Range Rover has no such system. Both models have the standard passenger and driver front airbags, ABS, front seatbelt pretensioners, traction and stability control, AWD, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, and available 360-degree view monitors.

Warranty Coverage

The 2019 BMW X5's corrosion warranty lasts for twelve years, while the Range Rover's only lasts six years. BMW covers scheduled maintenance for 36,000 miles or three years, whichever comes first. However, Land Rover only pays for one scheduled service visit on the Range Rover. There are approximately twice as many BMW dealers than Land Rover dealers, which makes it easier to get warranty service on the X5.

Handling and Suspension

The 2019 X5 has an optional active suspension system, which limits body roll and improves stability and handling. Unfortunately, Land Rover does not offer a similar system on the 2019 Range Rover Sport. For more stable handling and a smoother ride, the X5 has a wheelbase that's two inches longer than that of the Range Rover (117.1" compared to 115.1"). The X5 has more even front/rear weight distribution than the Range Rover Sport, which further improves braking and handling.

While the 2019 BMW X5 and the 2019 Range Rover Sport are both great choices, we recommend the X5 for numerous reasons, including its longer warranty, better suspension, and improved safety features. Visit our dealership today to compare these two models in person.
