Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Durango than in the BMW X3 PHEV, due to its greater head- and legroom. The BMW X3 PHEV offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Dodge Durango, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.
