Jaguar F-PACE vs. BMW X3: Features and Luxury

Is Jaguar better than BMW with regard to standard features? Although this competition might have been closer in years past, the release of the Pivi® entertainment system has given Jaguar a serious edge for model-year 2021. Designed with a back-up battery for instantaneous start-up, Pivi® can help you get more enjoyment out of every drive.

Of course, this new infotainment system isn’t the only reason that technology lovers and aesthetes prefer Jaguar to BMW. Compare more of each model’s highlights below:

  • Touchscreen: The BMW X3 only comes standard with a 10.9-inch touchscreen. This might give it an edge against some other rivals, but it looks small next to the 11.4-inch Pivi® screen.
  • Connectivity: The BMW X3 only offers Apple CarPlay™ as a standard feature. Although you can still connect an Android device with Bluetooth, those who want their favorite apps on hand should choose the Jaguar! It includes Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ in every trim.
  • Upholstery and Comfort: Both SUVs come standard with synthetic leather upholstery: Luxtec® for the Jaguar, and SensaTec® for the BMW. However, the X3 only comes with 10-way power-adjustable front seats. The F-PACE offers 12-way power-adjustable front seats, and heated front seats come standard, too!

Jaguar F-PACE vs. BMW X3: Performance and Engine Options

Which is better, Jaguar or BMW? If you’re anything like most Jaguar drivers near Stamford and New Canaan, the answer will almost always boil down to performance. When considering the Jaguar F-PACE or BMW X3, here’s what you should know.

Both the Jaguar F-PACE and the BMW come equipped with 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 engines as standard, and they offer 246 and 248 hp, respectively. Despite this initial similarity, any driver examining the rest of the lineup will find that the F-PACE gives them a little bit more to love:

  • Available F-PACE Engine: 3.0-Liter P340 I6 MHEV, with 335 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque
  • Available F-PACE Engine: 3.0-Liter P400 I6 MHEV, with 395 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque
  • Available BMW X3 Engine: 3.0-liter BMW M TwinPower Turbo I6, with 382 hp and 368 lb-ft of torque.
  • Available BMW X3 Powertrain: Although the BMW X3 offers just one additional engine, it can also be optioned as a plug-in hybrid. With just 288 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, it isn’t as compelling as either F-PACE upgrade.

With almost 40 more lb-ft of torque than the strongest X3 engine, the F-PACE SUV’s P400 I6 is the engine of choice for local performance enthusiasts. While you’re here, find out how the F-PACE wins out against the Range Rover Sport, as well.
