2017 Land Rover Discovery vs. 2017 BMW X5
2017 Land Rover Discovery
2017 BMW X5
The 2017 Land Rover Discovery and the 2017 BMW X5 are both capable crossovers that offer luxury levels of style and refinement. However, that does not mean both of these models have equal amounts of appeal. If you want to drive something truly elite and exceptional through the streets of Huntington, compare the all-new Discovery against the latest X5. Inclined to take the Land Rover iteration for a test drive, learn more at Land Rover Charleston.
Getting peak levels of opulence does not mean paying the highest price possible. The 2017 Discovery has an accessible starting MSRP of $49,990, while the 2017 BMW X5 costs quite lot more to start with an MSRP of $56,600. And despite being more accessible, the Discovery still has more to offer from the get-go.
If you’re shopping for a crossover, you probably want something strong and capable. The 2017 Land Rover Discovery comes standard with a supercharged 3.0L V6 engine that puts out 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels, and towing capacity reaches 8,201 pounds. The 2017 BMW X5 is powered by a turbocharged 3.0L V6 that only delivers 300 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to just the rear wheels, and towing tops out at 6,000 pounds.
You should never feel cramped in a luxury crossover. The 2017 Discovery comes standard with seating for five, but you have the option to add a third row of seating and expand that total to seven. There is an ample 45.0 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row, and up to 82.7 cubic feet of overall cargo space for you to work with. The cabin is not as spacious in the X5, however. Seating tops out at five, there is just 35.8 cubic feet of dedicated cargo space and 76.2 cubic feet of space overall.
