Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW X3 than in the Toyota 4Runner. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the BMW X3 and the Toyota 4Runner.

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 Toyota 4Runner. 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 Toyota 4Runner.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X3 is much slimmer than the Toyota 4Runner, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The BMW X3 is slightly shorter than the Toyota 4Runner, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the BMW X3 and the Toyota 4Runner are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The BMW X3 has a larger turning radius than the Toyota 4Runner, 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 Toyota 4Runner.

Utility
The BMW X3 has less seating than the Toyota 4Runner, making the Toyota 4Runner the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The BMW X3 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Toyota 4Runner.
