Not many luxury vehicles can claim to have it all, and West Port drivers know that they want it all when it comes to choosing a vehicle. Instead of comparing the 2016 Land Rover LR4 vs the 2017 BMW X5, pay attention to the facts—the Land Rover LR4 is the better choice. Not only does this vehicle offer more in terms of design and attraction on the Greenwich roads, but it also includes more power and better versatility for all your adventures. Read more about this superior model below.


When you drive a luxury vehicle, you want to be sure it stands out among a crowded road in Greenwich. The 2016 Land Rover LR4 does just that. This new model includes attractive and unique badging that lets everyone on the road know you mean business. In addition, full-length roof rails allows you to bring more on your next adventure, while available 20-inch five-split spoke wheels start the attractive features from the ground up.

The bold front grille of this new model adds a clean look to the front fascia that commands attention every time it hits the West Port streets. In addition, signature front lights not only complement the new and innovative style, but also provide necessary visibility when you need it most.

For drivers, the Command Driving position adds a touch of comfort to the cabin while also providing the clearest view of the road ahead. This allows you to spot hazards quickly and take in more of your surroundings for optimal safety.

Inside, seven passengers will enjoy the space and convenience found throughout the cabin. In addition, the front sunroof will tilt and slide to allow a beautiful view of the area and take in more fresh air when needed.

The BMW X5 has a style of its own, and while it does include its own set of fun features, it cannot compare to the sophistication and space provided by the Land Rover LR4.


The Land Rover LR4 was made for the off road, which means you’ll be able to enjoy more adventure with this model at your fingertips. For starters, the Terrain Response system allows you to easily switch engine, transmission, and throttle settings, so you can simply handle any terrain the New Canaan roads (or off-roads) want to throw your way.

For those taking an adventure, the split tailgate makes it easy for you to pack for a weekend getaway or a month-long excursion. Plus, with fold-down rear seats, you can create a customized and configurable cabin so that your passengers and all your belongings can come along for the ride.

Finally, when you choose the 2016 Land Rover LR4, you’ll enjoy a towing capacity of 7,716 pounds, which means you can bring anything along with you. Plus, throw in the Trailer Stability Assist feature, and you can have peace of mind any time you’re hauling something heavy behind you.

So when you want the vehicle that allows you to do more on the road, be sure you pick the 2016 Land Rover LR4.


The Land Rover LR4 comes standard with a 3.0L V6 supercharged engine that offers 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. In addition, the 5.0L V8 offers 375 hp and can go from 0-60 in only 7.5 seconds, which makes it the perfect addition for West Port driving.

The standard base engine on the BMW X5 is a 3.0L six-cylinder engine that offers only 300 hp. This means that you get more power with the Land Rover LR4 on the base model than you do with the base model of the BMW X5. Even if you kick things up to the 2.0L four-cylinder engine, you’ll only get 308 hp. Basically, the Land Rover LR4 brings more fun, power, and versatility to the road than the BMW X5.
