Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW X3 PHEV than in the Jaguar E-PACE. The BMW X3 PHEV will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Jaguar E-PACE.

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 PHEV is somewhat more expensive than the Jaguar E-PACE. 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 BMW X3 PHEV will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Jaguar E-PACE.

Dimensions
The BMW X3 PHEV is about the same width as the Jaguar E-PACE. If you go with the BMW X3 PHEV, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Jaguar E-PACE.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the BMW X3 PHEV doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Jaguar E-PACE.

Handling
The BMW X3 PHEV has the same turning radius as the Jaguar E-PACE, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the BMW X3 PHEV is clearly the choice over the Jaguar E-PACE for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X3 PHEV has a lot less horsepower than the Jaguar E-PACE.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X3 PHEV and the Jaguar E-PACE. The BMW X3 PHEV has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Jaguar E-PACE.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the BMW X3 PHEV is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Jaguar E-PACE.
