Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac XT6 than in the BMW X3 PHEV, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the BMW X3 PHEV and the Cadillac XT6.

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 PHEV will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Cadillac XT6. 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 XT6.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X3 PHEV is much slimmer than the Cadillac XT6, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW X3 PHEV, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Cadillac XT6.

Handling
The BMW X3 PHEV has the same turning radius as the Cadillac XT6, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW X3 PHEV has a little less horsepower than the Cadillac XT6.

Powertrain
The BMW X3 PHEV has much lower torque than the Cadillac XT6, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
The BMW X3 PHEV has less seating than the Cadillac XT6, making the Cadillac XT6 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The BMW X3 PHEV has significantly less cargo capacity than the Cadillac XT6.

Warranty
The BMW X3 PHEV comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac XT6.
