Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Tahoe than in the BMW X3 M, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Tahoe will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the BMW X3 M.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Tahoe, 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

The BMW X3 M is somewhat more expensive than the Chevrolet Tahoe. 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 M carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chevrolet Tahoe.
