How Does the X3 Stand Up to the Competition?

The X3 is in fierce competition with the Audi Q5. Both are compact SUV cars with powerful engines. X3 has a better gas mileage than the Q5, and it comes in handy if fuel efficiency is your concern. Instead, the Q5 has more luxurious and more tech features than the X3.

Another competitor is the Jaguar F-Pace, which matches the X3's athleticism. The F-Pace offers great drivability and comes with a variety of engine options. It also offers a little more cargo space than the X3, but both cars have sufficient cargo space.

The Acura RDX also competes with the X3. This Acura compact SUV comes with a more powerful base engine than the X3, but it is not a great option if you have fuel efficiency concerns. Inside, the RDX has a longer list of tech, safety, and comfort features. Both SUVs have sufficient cargo space.
