2021 BMW X4 M vs. 2021 Tesla Model X Performance


When it comes to getting a superbly engineered SUV that delivers thrills on the track, you cannot do better than the 2021 BMW X4 M. This is an outstanding vehicle that offers functionality in spadefuls which means it can be used as an everyday vehicle. With outstanding performance to boot, this is a car that will excite any car enthusiast out there. On the other hand, the 2021 Tesla Model X Performance offers incredible acceleration and overall riding dynamics. Though the styling is a little bland, this is an SUV that can hold its own on the track despite its all-electrical engine. Here is a comparison between these two vehicles and a verdict on which one is the better of the two.

Design & Style

With a sloping roofline that gives the 2021 BMW X4 M an aggressive stance, you are guaranteed that this is a car that will stand out wherever you go. BMW has also redesigned the interior to give it a sportier look and feel. From the sports seats to the steering wheel with enhanced grip, you will love taking the X4 M down for a spin on the track. With the Tesla Model X Performance, you get a rather bland interior, perhaps a nod to the vehicle’s futuristic leanings. While not uncomfortable, it is rather sparse for a vehicle whose price tag is well north of $100,000. The cabin is roomy and there is plenty of space in the trunk.

Technology & Safety

If you are looking for a sporty SUV with lots of tech features as standard, the 2021 X4 M is your best bet. The vehicle comes with a highly responsive infotainment system that works well with gesture and voice commands. Input is via a 10-0-inch touchscreen display that features crisp clear graphics. Other features include a top-notch audio system, smartphone integration, and a wireless charging pad. With the 2021 Tesla Model X Performance, you get a large tablet in the middle of the dash where all the cabin functions are controlled from. While impressive, we found it rather hard to operate it while driving the vehicle.


If you floor the gas pedal on the 2021 BMW X4 M, you instantly get around 500hp thanks to its V6 twin-turbo engine. Needless to say, the X4 M is very fast and is sure to deliver the thrills on the track. However, on the highway, the car is very composed and comfortable to drive. With the 2021 Tesla Model X Performance, power is also in plenty and the car can achieve incredible acceleration. Handling is not as good as that of the X4 M but should be satisfactory for everyday driving.

The Bottom Line

While the 2021 Tesla Model X Performance and the 2021 BMW X4 M are very fast cars, there is no doubt that the X4 M is the better of the two. The BMW X4 M offers more luxury features as well as better tech. it also rides better and looks better.
