2018 Jaguar F-PACE vs 2017 BMW X3

We know there isn’t one single thing that brings Mobile and Destin drivers to a luxury crossover, so we compared the 2018 Jaguar F-PACE and the 2017 BMW X3 on three fronts. Between the performance specs, cargo capacity, and Jaguar InControl infotainment system, we think the choice is clear. Check out how the two models compare below, then visit Jaguar Gulf Coast for a test drive.

Jaguar Performance in an SUV

It takes just a quick look at the Jaguar F-PACE performance specs to see that this is a Jaguar through and through. While the BMW X3 might be able to keep up with some crossovers, it’s easy to see how it lags behind this Jaguar:

  • Jaguar F-PACE: Available with four engine options, the 2018 Jaguar F-PACE is full of choices. At the top of the lineup is a 3.0L supercharged V6 with 380 hp.
  • BMW X3: Even the most powerful BMW X3 engine falls well behind what Jaguar powertrains are capable of, with a 3.0L turbocharged V6 managing just 300 hp.

Room for the Kids … and Their Things

Vehicles like the 2017 BMW X3 aim to put the “compact” into “compact crossover,” and it can be seen the instant you open up the hatch to load up the kids’ backpacks, sports gear, and band instruments. You’ll be lucky to find room for much else in the back of the BMW. See how the cargo specs compare:

  • The 2017 BMW X3 offers just6 cubic feet of storage space behind the rear seats – anything more and you’ll have to fold those seats down and give up passenger room.
  • The 2018 Jaguar F-PACE is built for the modern family on the go, featuring 5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats.

Jaguar InControl

BMW has been resting on its legacy in recent years, as evidenced by their lack of an advanced infotainment system on par with the InControl app and interface found on modern Jaguar models. This alone gives the Jaguar F-PACE technology features an edge, with a sleek, high-res 8-inch display screen and integrated smartphone app. The available 10.2-inch InControl Touch Pro display and 12.3-inch Virtual Instrument Display (with 3D Map View) make it clear the Jaguar F-PACE is a crossover that is looking toward the future – and the BMW X3 is living in the past.
