The BMW X3 PHEV will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Alfa Romeo Stelvio.

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).
