2018 BMW X3 vs. 2018 BMW X4 Review

Comparison Review

Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW X3 than in the BMW X4. The BMW X3 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW X4, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW X3 as you will with the BMW X4, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW X3 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW X4. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the BMW X3 and the BMW X4 have similar Destination Charges.

The BMW X3 is about the same width as the BMW X4. When looking at overall length, the BMW X3 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW X4.

With similar torque, the BMW X3 and the BMW X4 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

The BMW X3 has the same turning radius as the BMW X4, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

When considering towing capacity, the BMW X3 is clearly the choice over the BMW X4 for pulling heavy loads. The BMW X3 has a little more horsepower than the BMW X4.

In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X3 and the BMW X4. With the BMW X3, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the BMW X4.

The BMW X3 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW X4.
