Comparison Review

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

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Cadillac Escalade, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW X3 M.

Cost

The Destination Charge for the Cadillac Escalade is much higher than that for the BMW X3 M.
