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.

Trato superior comparado con otras marcas, en el proceso de compra, amables, serviciales y buscando descuentos y beneficios para el cliente. Instalaciones muy buenas, modernas y cómodas. Su área de servicio en general muy buena y eficiente, con algunos servicios en que prestan un auto, mientras reparan el de uno. En otros servicios, puede uno esperar en una sala con televisión, cafetera de café premium, refrescos y agua, cargadores de celular y otras amenidades.

Thank you so much to Othman Bouzoubaa our Client Advisor and to Chris Stiles our Sales Manager for helping us in the purchase of our first BMW. We live in Fort Worth but drove to Classic BMW to buy our X3 M40i because the customer service is that good! Very friendly staff! Classic BMW has a great showroom with vintage BMW's on the floor also.

I had a problem with the seat belt rubbing my neck in my new BMW X3, and no one had any ideas about how to solve the problem. ALEXANDER MILES accepted the challenge and suggested the use of a $10 product shown on Shark Tank that should fit the bill. I appreciate his staying with this annoying problem and coming up with a very out of the box solution. Great customer service!

For as long as I have had a BMW, Plano has been my service center of choice . Carlos and Brian have been my go-to guys for well over 10 years that I can remember. Always without exception I am impressed with the lengths they go to when they need to do the right thing. Even if I ever bought a new BEEMER somewhere else they will be my service department!
