2015 BMW X3 vs. 2014 Dodge Durango Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Durango than in the BMW X3, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the BMW X3 and the Dodge Durango.

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 Dodge Durango. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the BMW X3 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Dodge Durango.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X3 is much slimmer than the Dodge Durango, 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 Dodge Durango.

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

Handling
The BMW X3 has a larger turning radius than the Dodge Durango, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
The BMW X3 has less seating than the Dodge Durango, making the Dodge Durango the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The BMW X3 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Dodge Durango.

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