2018 BMW X3 vs. 2018 Nissan Armada Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Armada than in the BMW X3, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan Armada offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW X3, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW X3 as you will with the Nissan Armada, 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). Clearly, the BMW X3 is a better financial choice over the Nissan Armada, when considering MSRP. 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 Nissan Armada.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X3 is much slimmer than the Nissan Armada, 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 Nissan Armada.

Drivetrain
The BMW X3 has much lower torque than the Nissan Armada, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW X3 has a smaller turning radius than the Nissan Armada, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Nissan Armada 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 Nissan Armada.

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

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