2020 BMW X3 vs X5 Key Differences in Plano, TX

2020 BMW X3 vs X5 Key Differences in Plano, TX

BMW X5

Vehicles shown above are the 2020 BMW X3 (left) and 2020 BMW X5 (right) with optional features. 

Here at Classic BMW we don’t think you can go wrong with any of the vehicles in the BMW crossover lineup, but there may be one that is best suited to your needs. If you’ve been looking at the X3 and the X5, keep reading for a few of the main differences that set them apart. We would be happy to set you in a test drive when you’re ready, so feel free to call us soon!

Interior Space

We’ll start by opening up the doors and taking a look at the cabin of these two vehicles. As you may expect, the X3 is a smaller vehicle so it provides a little less space for you and your companions. Rear passengers have 36.4 inches of legroom compared to 37.4 in the second row of the X5. You may be surprised to see that with 40.3 inches of front legroom the X3 actually offers you more than the X5 which has 39.8 inches for the driver and co-pilot. What may end up being the deciding factor for your lifestyle is that the X5 does come with the option to equip a third row of seating, which the X3 does not. Looking at the cargo space of these two vehicles show fairly similar numbers with 28.7 cubic ft. behind the second row in the X3 and 33.9 cubic ft. behind the second row in the X5.

Performance

When it comes to the muscle working under the hood of the 2020 BMW X3 and X5, you’ll find that both offer plenty of power despite their differences. The X3 come equipped with a 2.0L TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine that kicks out 248-hp and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. If you live having options, you’ll appreciate that the 8-speed automatic transmission comes with sport and manual shift modes. The 2020 X5 offers the same transmission mated to its 3.0L TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder engine, which achieves 335-hp and 330 lb.-ft. of torque. As a smaller vehicle, the X3 is going to be the more efficient choice at 25/29 MPG city/hwy1, but the X5 still keeps you on the move with 21/26 MPG city/hwy1. Last, but not least, both offer xDrive AWD trims if you’re interested in maximum traction control.

Still Deciding?

Which one is right for you? As you can tell, both the X3 and the X5 match up fairly even in many categories. If you don’t need a third row of seating, we recommend thinking about what kind of driving you typically do. For those are often commuting alone and only occasionally need to transport large items or a full load of passengers, you may appreciate the efficiency and easy maneuvering of the X3. Growing families or camping and sports enthusiasts may want the additional room that the X5 provides along with the added muscle of the larger engine to fuel their adventures.

Explore all the fine details of the 2020 BMW X3 vs X5 key differences in Plano, TX. Classic BMW looks forward to showing off both of these vehicles in our state-of-the-art showroom.

My wife and I had an appointment with one of the BMW “Genius” staff to go over some of the technical capabilities of our new car. The individual was unable, at the last moment, to keep the appointment and Alex Miles stepped in to cover for him on short notice - even skipping his lunch to do so. Simply put, Alex was outstanding!!! He answered all of our questions, was patient and gave us first-class service! I trust that Classic BMW recognizes what a quality asset Alex is to their organization.

We went to Classic BMW to buy a certified pre-owned vehicle (first time). Michael Snyder made sure we found the right car. In fact, he made the whole process so easy and comfortable, that we bought two cars. We would definitely recommend Classic BMW and Michael Snyder to anyone in NTX looking to buy a BMW.

David Adamcik has been my service advisor for almost 7 years. Whenever I call David for routine or even non-routine service, he always makes the appointments in a timely manner and always makes sure I have a loaner car. He also is very good and thorough in his explanations about the work required on my car and any follow-up questions I may have. Thank you so much, David!

Was at the dealership today and spoke with Tim in services. He was incredibly helpful and informative as far as what we needed to take care of our vehicle. I would highly recommend the service at this location based on this experience alone. I don't usually go to the dealership but the help we got from Tim will definitely have us coming back!

I brought my E46 M3 into Classic BMW to get new tires and an alignment. Immediately I was greeted by the valets and promptly brought inside to my service advisor Zuhaib. He was very helpful and told me exactly how long it would take and the costs. Zuhaib kept me updated on the car as it was being worked on and let me know as soon as it was ready to be picked up. He was very helpful and I will definitely be coming back to Classic to work with him.

One of the best service experiences I’ve had in a long time. I visited for a regular service and oil change, the drop off was quite smooth and received regular updates via text. It took them a couple of days to order a bulb and the center speaker. The service included a complimentary interior cleanup. The car was looking slick when I went in to pick it up.
