2016 BMW X3 vs. 2015 Land Rover LR2 Review

Comparison Review

The BMW X3 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Land Rover LR2, with comparable head- and legroom. The BMW X3 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Land Rover LR2, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the BMW X3, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Land Rover LR2.

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 Land Rover LR2. 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 Land Rover LR2.

Dimensions
The BMW X3 is a little narrower than the Land Rover LR2, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the BMW X3, which is slightly longer than the Land Rover LR2.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the BMW X3 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Land Rover LR2.
