2014 BMW X3 vs. 2014 Land Rover LR2 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
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
The BMW X3 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Land Rover LR2, 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 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. Both the BMW X3 and the Land Rover LR2 have similar Destination Charges.

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.

Handling
The BMW X3 has a larger turning radius than the Land Rover LR2, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the BMW X3 is clearly the choice over the Land Rover LR2 for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the BMW X3 and the Land Rover LR2.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X3 and the Land Rover LR2. The BMW X3 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Land Rover LR2.

Warranty
The BMW X3 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Land Rover LR2.
