Cargo Space

Your Bergen drive isn’t the same if you don’t have a solid amount of space inside your vehicle to tackle all your adventures. As you compare the 2017 Land Rover Discovery vs the 2017 BMW X5, you’ll quickly find the new Land Rover is the better choice for cargo space. That’s because this model delivers 45 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row compared to only 22.9 cubic feet of space on the BMW. If you fold the seats flat, you’ll expose 82.7 cubic feet of space on the Land Rover and only 66 cubic feet of space on the BMW.


Taking those Saddle River adventures also means having a vehicle that can bring your equipment along for the ride. The 2017 Land Rover has a maximum trailering capacity of 8,201 pounds while the BMW can only tow 5,952 pounds. When your Englewood trip requires more than just hauling luggage, you’ll want a vehicle that can deliver on your expectations, and then some. Even Edmunds pointed out the lack of space on the BMW X5: “Utility can also be a concern…The optional third row is cramped and will be a tight fit, even for children. With both rows folded, cargo space measures 66 cubic feet, which is about average for the segment and barely better than BMW’s smaller X3.”
