BMW iX vs. Tesla Model X

See How the New BMW iX Stacks Up Against the New Tesla Model X in Columbus, GA

If you think an electric luxury SUV should be just as well-equipped as a gas-powered model, choose the new BMW iX. This crossover has the poised handling and convenient features that Columbus drivers desire. The new Tesla Model X is also a refined electric luxury SUV, but it doesn't have as nice an interior as the BMW iX. BMW of Columbus has designed the following comparison to explain the difference.

BMW iX vs. Tesla Model X


  • A more attractive, well-built cabin. The new BMW iX has one of the finest interiors in its class, with a blend of elegant and futuristic design elements. The iX is available with simulated leather, genuine leather, or microfiber cloth upholstery. People in Columbus, GA will like its ultra-modern hexagonal-shaped steering wheel and curved touchscreen instrument panel. The Tesla Model X has some stylish materials in its cabin, but assembly quality is inconsistent.
  • More comfortable seats. The new BMW iX has well-cushioned, power adjustable front seats that remain supportive on long drives. Both rows provide enough space that even taller folks can easily stretch out and relax. The Tesla Model X has well-cushioned seats, but they're not especially adjustable. Its third row of seats can be cramped because the Falcon Wing door mechanism cuts into back seat headroom.
  • Panoramic sunroof. The new BMW iX comes standard with a panoramic sunroof that lightens its cabin and lets in fresh air. The Tesla Model X does not offer a panoramic sunroof. However, it does have a panoramic windshield that improves outward visibility.


  • Better infotainment system. The BMW iX's iDrive infotainment system is one of the best on the market, with a user-friendly interface, easily navigable menus, and intuitive controls. Its touchpad controller is easy to use, and you can also utilize voice commands to control the system. The Tesla Model X's touch screen is straightforward, but it also controls nearly every function in the vehicle. Voice control is unavailable in the Model X's infotainment system.
  • Smartphone Integration. Columbus, GA drivers will appreciate that Apple Carplay and Android Auto smartphone integration comes standard in the BMW iX for easy access to their apps. The Tesla Model X doesn't offer Android Auto or Apple Carplay compatibility, although there are apps for streaming services like Spotify.


  • Less charging time. It takes about 10.5 hours to fully charge the BMW iX using a 240-volt household-style power outlet. The Tesla Model X needs 18 hours to get a full charge with a 240-volt outlet.
  • Better maneuverability. The new BMW iX is only 195 inches long and 77.4 inches wide. Its responsive steering and tight turning radius makes it a cinch to navigate through narrow lanes and crowded parking lots in Columbus. The Tesla Model X also has sharp steering, but it's 198.3 inches long and 78.7 inches wide, so it's not quite as easy to maneuver through small spaces as the iX.
