Jaguar F-PACE vs BMW X3

Performance inspired luxury SUVs like the Jaguar F-PACE and BMW X3 provide drivers with upscale design, lots of features, and a lineup of engines that are fun to drive. So, which one is right for you?

To help drivers in New Orleans and Metairie decide, Jaguar New Orleans put together this Jaguar F-PACE vs. BMW X3 comparison.

Jaguar F-PACE vs BMW X3 Interior

Both the Jaguar F-PACE and BMW X3 offer a luxury cabin with two rows of seats and space for up to five people. Once you settle into the classic leather seats, you'll notice that Jaguar offers your passengers a more comfortable ride.

While they each give the driver and front passenger 40.3 inches of front legroom, the Jaguar allows passengers in the backseat to stretch out more with 37.2 inches of rear legroom. The X3 is a little more cramped in the back seat with 36.4 inches of rear legroom.

There's also a big difference in how much cargo each SUV can help you carry. The Jaguar F-PACE has a large trunk with 33.5 cubic feet of cargo room, plus 40:20:40 folding second-row seats to give you up to 63.5 cubic feet of cargo room.

The BMW X3 has a significantly smaller trunk with just 28.7 cubic feet of cargo room available. It also has folding seats but still offers less space with 62.7 cubic feet of cargo room.

Jaguar F-PACE vs BMW X3 Infotainment System

Each luxury SUV provides you with a user-friendly infotainment system. They're both Bluetooth® compatible for streaming music and taking hands free phone calls, plus they provide you navigation that includes colorful maps and turn-by-turn directions.

The Jaguar F-PACE helps you see that information more clearly with a 10-inch touchscreen that blends in seamlessly with the center of your dashboard.

On the other hand, the BMW X3 puts your infotainment system on top of the dashboard. While the 8.8-inch screen is smaller, its location makes it stand out. Not only does it not blend in with the rest of the interior, it obstructs some of your view while you're driving.

Jaguar F-PACE vs BMW X3 Performance

The Jaguar F-PACE and BMW X3 both offer a solid lineup of engines that work with a dynamic 8-speed automatic transmission. You'll find more power and variety under the hood of the Jaguar though.

Its strongest engine is a 5.0L Supercharged V8 that gets up to 550 horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque. There's even an efficient 2.0L 4-cylinder Turbocharged Diesel engine available that gets up to 180 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque.

The BMW does not offer a diesel option or as many gas engines to choose from. Plus, its largest engine is a smaller 3.0L I-6 that gets just 355 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque.

The Jaguar F-PACE also delivers this level of performance on top of a capable drivetrain with standard all-wheel drive. While all-wheel drive is available on the BMW X3, front-wheel drive is standard.
