2016 BMW X3 vs. 2016 Honda Pilot Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Pilot 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 Honda Pilot.

Convenience
The BMW X3 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Honda Pilot, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Honda Pilot. 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 Honda Pilot.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X3 is much slimmer than the Honda Pilot, 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 Honda Pilot.

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

Handling
The BMW X3 has the same turning radius as the Honda Pilot, 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 Honda Pilot.

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

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