2015 BMW X3 vs. 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
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. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the BMW X3 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW X3 as you will with the Jeep Grand Cherokee, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). 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. In this case, the BMW X3 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Dimensions
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.

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

Handling
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.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X3 has a lot less horsepower than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Utility
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 significantly less cargo capacity than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

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