Serving Union City, GA

The 2019 Jaguar F-PACE and BMW X3 are two of the most luxurious crossovers on the road. Both offer a seamless blend of high-end style and comfort. They also provide all-out speed and smooth performance. If you’re trying to decide between the two crossovers but aren’t sure what to look for, we can help. Our comparison guide takes a closer look at the F-PACE and X3 to help you pick out the qualities that you crave in a luxury crossover.

High-End Power & Performance

Both the 2019 Jaguar F-PACE and BMW X3 deliver a smooth, refined performance that packs plenty of punch. However, the F-PACE packs a bigger punch, making it the better option for driving enthusiasts. Drivers can choose from five Jaguar engine options, so it’s easy to tailor the F-PACE’s performance to suit individual demands. To start off, the 25t is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 247 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. Next up is the 30t, a more powerful version of the aforementioned turbo four that spits out 296 horses and 295 pound-feet of torque. For drivers who want to put more of an emphasis on fuel economy, the 20d is a turbocharged 2.0-liter diesel engine that makes 180 horsepower and 318 pound-feet of torque. The high-powered F-PACE S trim features an exclusive supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine rated for 380 horses and 332 pound-feet of torque. At the top of the trim lineup is the new SRV, which supplies blazing speed with its supercharged 5.0-liter V8, an engine that makes 550 horses and 502 pound-feet of torque.

The BMW X3 offers only two engine options. The sDrive30i and xDrive30i trim models feature a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine rated for 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. On the top-of-the-line M40i model, you’ll find more power, via the turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine. It makes 355 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, which is pretty good, but doesn’t come close to the high-powered engines you’ll find on the F-PACE.

Upscale Comfort

The 2019 Jaguar F-PACE is also our pick for premium comfort. This five-passenger luxury crossover comes standard with a long list of upscale essentials, from dual-zone automatic climate control to rear privacy glass. The eight-way power front seats make it easy to get comfy before a long trip. As you climb the F-PACE trim levels, you’ll only find more luxury. The Premium trim adds driver-seat memory settings to make it easy to get in and out of the driver seat. Options like the ventilated front seats and heated and power-reclining rear seats give the F-PACE some extra panache. The mid-range Prestige trim and up feature high-end leather upholstery and a heated power-adjustable steering wheel. While the F-PACE offers seven trim levels, the BMW X3 is only available as three. BWM is also famous for structuring its trim levels alongside a range of options packages, which can quickly inflate the price tag. Although the standard X3 isn’t quite as luxurious as its F-PACE counterpart, it does include simulated-leather upholstery and power-adjustable front seats.

High-Tech Connectivity & Safety

If you aim to stay connected to the outside world, the 2019 Jaguar F-PACE is your luxury crossover. It comes standard with everything you need, including Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity and an excellent 10-inch touchscreen. High-tech safety features, like automatic emergency braking and lane keeping assist, are included on every F-PACE trim. The 2019 BWM X3 also offers crash-mitigation features such as forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking, but you have to add the optional Driving Assistance package to get them. Apple CarPlay is available as part of the optional Premium package, but Android Auto is not supported at all.
