Two of the newest models in their lineups, the 2019 Range Rover Sport and 2019 BMW X5, continue the tradition by offering the power, performance, and comfort that luxury buyers expect. To help you make your decision before you make your next purchase, take a look at our vehicle comparison below. 

Performance

When it comes to suspension and handling, the Range Rover Sport is designed to hug the road when cornering and provide for a smooth ride through better off-road articulation. This is partly due to the included active sway bar, which is not available on the BMW X5. The Range Rover also sports a 1.9-inch wider track in the front and 1.5-inch wider track in the rear which allows for improved handling.

The Range Rover Sport comes equipped with a 3.0-liter, supercharged, V-6 engine that outputs up to 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. You can also opt for a hybrid engine or upgrade your power all the way to a 5.0-liter, supercharged, V-8 engine that outputs an impressive 518 horsepower and 461 pound-feet of torque.

The 2019 BMW X5 comes standard with a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine, which outputs 300 horsepower. You can choose to upgrade to a 4.4-liter turbo V-8 engine for up to 456 horsepower, which falls quite a bit shy of the Range Rover's maximum output. 

Pricing

When it comes to MSRP, the 2019 BMW X5 has a slightly smaller price tag at a starting price of $60,700 while the 2019 Range Rover Sport starts at an MSRP of $67,050. However, when you take into account the standard features on the Range Rover, such as the V-6 engine, upgraded suspension, and off-roading capabilities, an apples-to-apples comparison would run about the same price. 

Safety & Security

The Range Rover offers pretensioners for both the middle and front seats that eliminate dangerous slack in the event of a crash, as well as force limiters that reduce the amount of force that will be exerted on passengers when the tension occurs. The X5 does not offer middle seat belt pretensioners or pre-crash front seat belts. 

Both vehicles offer child safety locks, though, on the Range Rover Sport, they can be activated and deactivated from the driver's seat while they have to be manually engaged on the X5. The Range Rover Sport and the X5 include standard driver and passenger airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, traction control, electronic stability system, daytime running lights, and rear parking sensors. The Range Rover also offers an optional cross-path warning system to alert the driver when a vehicle is approaching from the side. 

Luxury & Convenience

Both vehicles have an abundance of convenience features that ensure that all your needs are covered when driving. These features include keyless ignition and Bluetooth connectivity. You also can stay hands-free in either vehicle through available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
