Comparison Review

Convenience
With the BMW X6, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW X3 M, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 M is somewhat more expensive than the BMW X6. 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 M and the BMW X6 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X3 M is much slimmer than the BMW X6, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The BMW X3 M is slightly shorter than the BMW X6, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the BMW X3 M does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the BMW X6.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X3 M greatly out-muscles the BMW X6.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X3 M and the BMW X6.

Warranty
The BMW X3 M comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW X6.
