Drivetrain Options


When you drive one of the latest BMW SUV models, you’re guaranteed to have more fun on the roads near Riverside. Among our neighbors, comparing the BMW X3 vs. BMW X5 has become an increasingly common practice, but do these two Sport Activity Vehicles® measure up in 2020? BMW of Greenwich has done the research already, so you can find the model you’ve always wanted.

BMW X3 vs. X5: Seating and Cargo Space

The biggest difference between the X3 and the X5 just might be in their dimensions!

  • Seating Capacity: If you’d like to have room to travel with up to seven passengers, you’ll need to choose the X5! The X3 can only seat five passengers, while the X5 offers a third-row seat as an optional upgrade.
  • Cargo Volume: The X3 gives you access to 28.7 cubic feet behind the second row, while the X5 offers 33.9 cubic feet as standard. Fold down the rear seats, and you’ll access 62.7 cubic feet or 72.3 cubic feet, in the X3 or the X5, respectively.

BMW X3 vs. X5: Engine Options and Capabilities

  • Drivetrain Options: Both models come standard with rear-wheel drive, and offer handling capabilities that will enhance every drive on the highways near Rye. Each is also available with xDrive AWD, no matter which configuration you choose.
  • Engine Options: The X3 starts with a 2.0L I-4, offering 248 hp of torque, while the X5 comes equipped with a 335-hp 3.0L I-6. An available X3 engine delivers up to 382 hp, but the X5 offers two additional engines, including a 523-hp V8.
  • Efficiency: With the X3, you can enjoy up to 25 mpg city and 29 mpg highway. While the larger X5 does great for its class, it only offers 21 mpg city and 26 mpg highway at maximum.
  • Towing Capacity: A properly-configured X3 can only tow around 4,400 pounds. The BMW X5 towing capacity lets you manage up to 7,200 pounds.

BMW X3 vs. X5: Standard Features and Amenities

Is it worth paying a little extra to enjoy the BMW X5? If features and amenities are your main concern, you should know that the BMW X5 interior offers you a few additional standard features, including:

  • Speed-sensitive volume control
  • Blind Spot Monitoring
  • Heated front seat-backs and seat cushions
  • Lane Departure Warning

With either choice, you’ll enjoy an impressive standard audio system, along with advanced features like Parking Assistance! So, you’ll be getting an excellent value no matter which model you settle on.
