2017 BMW X3 vs. 2016 Chevrolet Traverse Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW X3 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Chevrolet Traverse, with comparable head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Traverse 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). The BMW X3 is somewhat more expensive than the Chevrolet Traverse. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the BMW X3 is much higher than that for the Chevrolet Traverse.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X3 is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Traverse, 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 Chevrolet Traverse.

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

Handling
The BMW X3 has a smaller turning radius than the Chevrolet Traverse, 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 Chevrolet Traverse.

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

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW X3 than that of the Chevrolet Traverse.
