BMW created the Sport Activity Vehicle® for Marietta and other U.S. drivers, and the lineup now includes a model for every driving style. How do you know which one is right for you? Take a look with United BMW as we compare BMW SUV models: the BMW X3 vs. X5.

BMW X3 vs. X5: Performance Specs

The X3 price is significantly lower than that assigned to the X5, but it’s a given that any BMW is going to be a high-performance vehicle. These BMW SUV models both have standard rear-wheel drive or the available BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive system. However, each model has its own starting engine, along with unique upgrades:

Standard BMW X3 Engine:

  • 248 hp 2.0L I-4 engine with 258 lb-ft of torque

Available BMW X3 Engine: 

  • 382 hp 3.0L M Performance I-6 engine with 382 lb-ft of torque

Standard BMW X5 Engine:

  • 335 hp 3.0L I-6 engine with 330 lb-ft of torque

Available BMW X5 Engine:

  • 456 hp 4.4L V8 engine with 479 lb-ft of torque

Available BMW X5 Engine: 

  • 523 hp 4.4L M Performance engine V8 engine with 553 lb-ft of torque

With more power under the hood, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to learn that the BMW X5 towing capacity is much higher than the X3 SUV’s own tow rating. The X5 engines also give it an edge over the Audi Q7.

BMW X3 vs. X5: Interior Space

When you compare BMW models, especially SUVs, it’s important to take a look at how much space you’ll have for passengers and cargo as you travel through Johns Creek. Here are the interior dimensions of the BMW X3 vs. X5:

  • The BMW X3 boasts seating for five with 28.7 to 62.7 cubic feet of cargo space. It’s smaller size places it into the compact category of SUVs.
  • The BMW X5 mid-size SUV also seats five, but you’ll have the option to seat seven if you add the available third row of seats. You’ll also enjoy between 33.9 and 72.3 cubic feet of cargo space, depending on how you configure the seats in the X5 interior.
