2017 BMW X3 vs. 2017 GMC Acadia Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Acadia 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 GMC Acadia.

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 GMC Acadia. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW X3 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the GMC Acadia.

Dimensions
The BMW X3 is a little narrower than the GMC Acadia, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. 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 GMC Acadia.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the BMW X3 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the GMC Acadia.

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

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

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

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