2015 BMW X3 vs. 2015 Buick Enclave Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW X3 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Buick Enclave, with comparable head- and legroom. The Buick Enclave offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW X3, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Cost
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 Buick Enclave. 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 Buick Enclave have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X3 is much slimmer than the Buick Enclave, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW X3, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Buick Enclave.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the BMW X3 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Buick Enclave.

Handling
The BMW X3 has a smaller turning radius than the Buick Enclave, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X3 has a lot less horsepower than the Buick Enclave.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the BMW X3 seats a lot fewer people than the Buick Enclave. The BMW X3 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Buick Enclave.

Warranty
The BMW X3 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Buick Enclave.
