The Range Rover Sport and the BMW X5 are two luxury SUVs that each have the soul of a sports car. Powerful engines and driver-centric cockpits come together to invigorate your rides through New Orleans or Metairie, LA.
The only thing left to decide is which model you’ll choose. That’s where our team at Land Rover New Orleans comes in. It’s the 2023 Range Rover Sport vs. BMW X5. Let’s see which one comes out on top!
PREMIUM SOUND SYSTEM
The Range Rover Sport and the BMW X5 are closely matched when it comes to their performance abilities. Both come with a 3.0L inline 6-cylinder engine. The difference is that while the X5 generates 335 horsepower, the Range Rover Sport kicks out up to 355 horsepower.
All Wheel Drive comes standard with the Range Rover Sport, while it’s only available as an option with the X5. Both models also offer selectable drive modes, but the available Terrain Response® 2 of the Range Rover Sport takes capability to the next level. This system can automatically engage the ideal driving mode based on current conditions.
All-Wheel Steering is an innovative performance feature that’s available with both SUVs. At high speeds, the rear wheels will turn with the front ones to increase agility and improve stability. At lower speeds, they’ll turn in the opposite direction to the front wheels to boost maneuverability.
The Range Rover Sport and the BMW X5 evenly mesh dynamism and rich comfort. These are luxury SUVs after all. You can expect nothing but the best when you take a seat inside either cabin.
Once you settle into the 20-way electric front seats of the Range Rover Sport, you’ll know this SUV was sculpted to suit you. The BMW X5 also comes with power-adjustable seats. These come wrapped in synthetic leather, whereas the Range Rover Sport brings true luxury to the table with standard perforated Windsor leather.
Their infotainment systems are similar, providing access to a variety of connectivity features. The main difference is that you’ll be able to see a lot more on the 13.1-inch Pivi Pro Touchscreen of the Range Rover Sport. The BMW X5 only comes standard with a 12.3-inch display.
When it comes to surrounding you in the sounds of your favorite artists, the BMW X5 is plenty capable when outfitted with its available Harman Kardon® Surround Sound Audio System with 16 speakers. The Range Rover Sport, however, goes a few steps further with its available Meridian™ Signature Sound System, which includes up to 29 speakers.
Out on the road, confidence is key, which is why both the Range Rover Sport and the BMW X5 come with a similar lineup of standard safety features.
Among their shared safety technologies are brand-specific versions of the following:
Driver Condition Response comes standard with the Range Rover Sport. It will warn you when it detects drowsy or distracted driving so you can take a break or refocus on the road ahead. That’s where all the fun is anyway. The BMW X5 offers a similar system known as Fatigue and Focus Alert.
The next time you need a hand in navigating the parking lot, these SUVs are here to help. They’re both available with Park Assist systems that can steer you right into any suitable spot.
The competition may be too close to call in the safety department. However, once you step inside and feel the unbridled power of the Range Rover Sport, it’s easy to see that it’s the superior luxury SUV for your drives around New Orleans and Metairie, LA.
