Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the BMW X3 M than the Land Rover Discovery. The BMW X3 M will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Land Rover Discovery.

Convenience
With the Land Rover Discovery, 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

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 Land Rover Discovery.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the BMW X3 M transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Land Rover Discovery.
