Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW X3 than in the Jaguar E-PACE. The BMW X3 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.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW X3 as you will with the Jaguar E-PACE, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW X3 will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Jaguar E-PACE.

Dimensions
The BMW X3 is about the same width as the Jaguar E-PACE. If you go with the BMW X3, 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 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Jaguar E-PACE.

Handling
The BMW X3 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 is clearly the choice over the Jaguar E-PACE for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the BMW X3 and 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 and the Jaguar E-PACE. The BMW X3 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 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Jaguar E-PACE.
