2023 BMW X3 vs. 2023 Jaguar E-Pace

 

The 2023 Jaguar E-Pace is a sporty SUV with a minimalist appearance, impressive handling and a solid warranty. But can it beat the 2023 BMW X3, a sport utility vehicle that comes with a serene cabin, array of safety tech, and turbocharged M performance?

Design & Style

The BMW X3 seats five and offers lots of space in its cabin. A prominent kidney grille can be seen in front that is accompanied by pronounced headlights. Beneath it, numerous vents can be seen, all of which are functional and give the vehicle a sporty appearance. Within the cabin, passengers will be presented with a ten inch touch display that can be upgraded to twelve inches if desired.

Jaguar has trimmed down its E-Pace to a single model, which is the SE. It has phased out both the performance and introductory variants. The E-Pace has an elegant exterior profile with an interior to match. Its LED headlights look great and within the cabin passengers will be presented with an eleven inch touch display. It can seat four adults and about twenty four cubic feet has been reserved for cargo.

Technology & Safety

The Jaguar E-Pace comes with all the contemporary safety gear that an automobile should have these days, including blind area monitoring, parking sensors, emergency automatic brakes, and numerous airbags. Conveniences inside its cabin include keyless start, leather powered seats that can be adjusted twelve ways, climate control, charging for wireless devices and a powered tailgate.

Both the IIHS and NHTSA adore the BMW X3. The NHTSA gave it a perfect five star review while the IIHS bestowed its prestigious Top Safety Pick+ award. It comes with all the safety features found in the Jaguar including blind area monitoring and emergency automatic brakes which come standard. Conveniences inside its cabin include leather upholstery, powered seats that can be cooled or heated, a sunroof, multizone climate control and premium audio.

Performance

Those that purchase the BMW X3 M Competition will get a turbo 6 engine that can generate 503 horsepower, which allows it to accelerate from zero to sixty in a lightning fast 3.3 seconds. The Jaguar E-Pace is powered by a turbo 4, 2 liter engine that can generate 246 horsepower with the ability to accelerate from zero to sixty in around seven seconds.

The Bottom Line

The BMW X3 has more safety accolades than the Jaguar, seats more passengers, and substantially better performance. Given the fact that the E-Pace engine can no longer be upgraded, its transmission is confusing and its engine is loud during operation, this makes the BMW X3 the victor.
