2018 BMW X3 vs. 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review

Comparison Review

Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Grand Cherokee than in the BMW X3, due to its greater head- and legroom. The BMW X3 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

With the Jeep Grand Cherokee, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW X3, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Jeep Grand Cherokee. 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 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Since the BMW X3 is much slimmer than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The BMW X3 is slightly shorter than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which may make it easier to park.

With similar torque, the BMW X3 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

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

In terms of towing capacity, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is clearly the choice over the BMW X3 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X3 has a lot less horsepower than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X3 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The BMW X3 has less cargo space than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW X3 than that of the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
