2017 BMW X3

If you’re in the market for a compact luxury SUV, then the 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport and the 2017 BMW X3 are prime choices. They both provide adequate power when you hit the road, and they come equipped with a plethora of high-end features. You’ll likely only bring one home as your main mode of transportation, though. Discover the winner with this comparison, and then plan your trip from Newtown Square or Wayne to Land Rover West Chester to get behind the wheel.

Cargo Space

Despite the compact description, the 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport actually has plenty of space inside to load up all of your gear. When all five seats are occupied, you’ll still have an ample 32 cubic feet for storage in back. And if you need more room, simply fold the second row flat to open up an impressive 66.9 cubic feet. The 2017 BMW X3, on the other hand, only offers 27.6 cubic feet for cargo behind the rear seat in back, and it has a maximum cargo capacity of just 63.3 cubic feet. For drivers who need more space, then, the 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport is the clear winner.

Off-Road Prowess

The 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport and the 2017 BMW X3 have similar output from their standard engines. In fact, both the Land Rover model’s turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder and the BMW SUV’s turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder produce 240 hp. However, the newest Land Rover Discovery Sport proves more adept at venturing off the beaten path. That’s because all models come equipped with the Land Rover Terrain Response system, which alters vehicle setting to match the road or rough terrain ahead, whether it be sand, dirt, rock or inclement weather conditions. The introductory BMW X3 offers no such drive modes, meaning it wouldn’t serve you as well on off-road adventures.

High-Tech Features

Both compact luxury SUVs are generously equipped, but the 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport has certain high-tech features that the 2017 BMW X3 does not. In particular, the Land Rover Discovery Sport can be had with onboard Wi-Fi, while there is no Internet connection available on the BMW X3. If you want to stay connected on the go, then, the 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport has you covered.

Price

The best part is, you get all of the advantages of the 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport at a lower cost than the 2017 BMW X3.

  • Land Rover Discovery Sport: MSRP from $37,695
  • BMW X3: MSRP from $39,250
