2017 Volkswagen Touareg vs. 2019 BMW X3 Review

Comparison Review

The Volkswagen Touareg offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the BMW X3, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Volkswagen Touareg and the BMW X3.

The Volkswagen Touareg requires fewer stops at the gas station than the BMW X3, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Volkswagen Touareg will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW X3, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 Volkswagen Touareg will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the BMW X3.

Since the Volkswagen Touareg is much wider than the BMW X3, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Volkswagen Touareg takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW X3.

With somewhat higher torque, the Volkswagen Touareg transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the BMW X3.

The Volkswagen Touareg has the same turning radius as the BMW X3, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

When considering towing capacity, the Volkswagen Touareg is clearly the choice over the BMW X3 for pulling heavy loads. The Volkswagen Touareg has a little more horsepower than the BMW X3.

In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Volkswagen Touareg and the BMW X3. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Volkswagen Touareg as you will in the BMW X3.

The basic warranty of the Volkswagen Touareg is not as nearly as extensive as that of the BMW X3.
