Comparison Review

The BMW X3 PHEV offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Cadillac XT5, with comparable head- and legroom. The BMW X3 PHEV will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Cadillac XT5.

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). Whether you pick the BMW X3 PHEV or the Cadillac XT5, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW X3 PHEV carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Cadillac XT5.

The BMW X3 PHEV is about the same width as the Cadillac XT5. The BMW X3 PHEV is slightly shorter than the Cadillac XT5, which may make it easier to park.

The BMW X3 PHEV has a little more horsepower than the Cadillac XT5.

In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X3 PHEV and the Cadillac XT5. The BMW X3 PHEV has less cargo space than the Cadillac XT5, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

The BMW X3 PHEV comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac XT5.
