Many people love the 2022 Cadillac Escalade, while others love the 2022 BMW X3. While these are both great vehicles, here’s why you might consider choosing the 2022 BMW X3 over the 2022 Cadillac Escalade.
Comparing two cars this different might seem like it’s comparing apples to oranges, but in some ways, that analogy doesn’t quite fit. After all, apples and oranges are fruit, and what could be more different than apples and oranges? Instead, 2022 BMW X3 and 2022 Cadillac Escalade are more like different kinds of cars in the same category — luxury SUVs — than they are like apples and oranges.
Design & Style
This is one of those places where there’s no clear winner. The BMW X3 has a more attractive design, but then again, you have to compare it to a car like a Toyota FJ Cruiser, and it doesn’t look as good. The Escalade is less visually appealing in comparison, but I still feel that it’s better looking than most other full-size SUVs out there. Still, these are subjective opinions, so we’re going to say that both cars look great—and they can both win on looks here. Draw!
Car interiors are designed to give passengers a spacious, comfortable driving experience. The comparison between the 2022 BMW X3 and 2022 Cadillac Escalade interior is pretty even at first glance. While each car comes with leather upholstery, heated front seats, a sunroof, and a navigation system, they also come with an armrest that folds up or down and a second row of seats that can be folded into a flat position in order to provide more space. Both cars come standard with a push-button start. However, if you opt for the 2022 BMW X3 (or use your phone’s keypad), you get access to features like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity as well as internet radio apps integration via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
Technology & Safety
Both cars come equipped with features that make driving safer and more enjoyable. The 2022 BMW X3 comes with an optional 8 touchscreen navigation system. While not cutting edge, it is reasonably responsive and has a good user interface. OnStar is standard on both vehicles but requires a subscription to access any additional services. Neither vehicle’s infotainment system nor cabin electronics do anything special, but they are both well executed for the segment, making them about average for their class. Looking at safety features, both SUVs come with several airbags in addition to other passive safety features such as ABS and traction control systems.
The amazing performance specs of the 2022 BMW X3’s turbocharged 2.0-liter, DOHC, inline-four engine combined with xDrive system and eight-speed automatic transmission make for an impressive combination. With 240 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque, you have plenty of power to play with when cornering or passing on a two-lane highway. Compare that to the 2022 Cadillac Escalade’s standard V8 that produces 420 horsepower, 417 lb.-ft, and you will see why the 2022 BMW X3 stands out.
The Bottom Line
With the 2022 BMW X3, you will get more than what you pay for; it is cheaper than its competitor. That savings can go a long way in the future use of your car. The brand has a good reputation, which makes it safer to buy. It is also considered one of the most durable car brands in North America. With these features alone, you can be sure that you are making the right choice.
