BMW X3 vs BMW X1


Trying to decide between the BMW X3 and the BMW X1? You’ve come to the right place! We at BMW of Arlington have put together this detailed comparison to help shoppers in Arlington, Dallas, and Fort Worth figure out which capable luxury SUV is the best fit for them.

Below, you’ll see how the BMW X3 vs. BMW X1 stack up against each other when it comes to performance, interior space, and technology. Let’s get started by taking a peek under their hoods to see what makes them move!

BMW X1 Performance


2019 BMW X1 BMW X3 Performance

BMW X3 vs BMW X1: Performance Specifications

Standardly powering both the BMW X3 and the BMW X1 is a 2.0L BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder engine. However, you’ll see the powertrains of these two vehicles begin to differ when it comes to how they perform. Both models generate 258 lb-ft of torque, but the X3 kicks it up a notch with 248 horsepower to offer and the X1 not far behind with 228 horsepower.

The X1, on the other hand, excels when it comes to efficiency. This model offers an EPA-estimated 24 city/33 highway MPG on top of all the pep you’ll get when you’re zipping around town.

On top of these powerful powertrains, both the BMW X3 and the BMW X1 offer an available xDrive all-wheel-drive system. This intelligent all-wheel-drive system works closely with the Dynamic Stability Control feature to constantly monitor road conditions and automatically adjust your grip on the road.

In addition to the standard engine that it has in common with the X1, the BMW X3 offers a second available engine that goes above and beyond when it comes to power. Opt for the available 3.0L TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder engine, which generates a whopping 382 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque.

BMW X3 vs BMW X1: Cargo & Passenger Space

Both the 2020 BMW X3 and the 2020 BMW X1 offer five spacious seats and around 101 total cubic feet of passenger space. However, you’ll find that this space is distributed a bit differently with the following passenger area specifications:


2020 BMW X3

2020 BMW X1

Front/Rear Headroom

41.1 inches/39.1 inches

41.9 inches/39.4 inches

Front/Rear Legroom

40.3 inches/36.4 inches

40.4 inches/37 inches

Front/Rear Shoulder Room

57.6 inches/56 inches

55.6 inches/55.2 inches


BMW X1 Cargo Space

In addition to all the space you and your passengers will have inside the BMW X3 and the BMW X1, you’ll also have more than enough cargo space to work with.

With all five seats in place, the X3 offers 27.1 cubic feet behind the rear row of seats. Take advantage of the 40/20/40 split folding rear seats to make the most of your interior space. Fold one, two, or all three rear seats down to get the perfect passenger-to-cargo ratio with the X3’s 62.7 total cubic feet of cargo space.

The BMW X1, which sports a slightly smaller body, still gives you plenty of cargo space to work with. With all five seats up right, you’ll have about 27 cubic feet of cargo space to work with behind the second row of seats.

Need more space for larger items, like skiing and snowboarding equipment, full-size suitcases, or home improvement project supplies? Fold down the rear seats and you’ll get 58.7 spacious cubic feet of cargo space in total.

BMW X3 vs BMW X1: Advanced Technology Features

As luxury SUVs, the 2020 BMW X3 and the 2020 BMW X1 come decked out with all kinds of top-of-the-line technology features. Both models provide an intuitive iDrive infotainment system, offering turn-by-turn navigation, hands-free phone calling, and satellite radio.

Additionally, both models offer a Head-Up Display, which delivers an array of important information to your line of sight. You don’t have to look too far away from the road to stay up to date on directions, speed limits, collision warnings, and more.

This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to advanced driver-assistance systems in these models. On top of the Head-Up Display that you’ll find in the X3 and the X1, you’ll be able to ramp up confidence and safety with additional features, including:

  • Dynamic Cruise Control–Monitors the speed of the vehicles around you on the road and automatically adjusts your speed to keep you a safe distance from them
  • Frontal Collision Warning–Keeps tabs on the road in front of you and alerts you if a collision with a vehicle or other obstacles is likely
  • Lane Departure Warning–Keeps an eye on your lane lines and warns you if you begin to veer from your lane so you can correct yourself and avoid an accident

One bonus feature you’ll get to enjoy in both models is a Wi-Fi hotspot that lets passengers stream and surf to their heart’s content. With standard BMW ConnectedDrive® Services, you’ll be able to seamlessly integrate your vehicle with your smart device.

From your smartphone, you’ll be able to perform all kinds of functions, such as locking and unlocking the doors as well as remotely start your vehicle. Get the car warmed up or cooled down before you even step out of the house in the morning.

With the X3, you’ll also get available Surround View with Remote 3D View, which gives you the capability to check up on your BMW right from your phone. Just open the app and you’ll find a 360-degree, bird’s-eye view of your vehicle and its surroundings.

2020 BMW X3 vs 2020 BMW X1: Which One?

As you can see, both the 2020 BMW X3 and the 2020 BMW X1 offer an impressive lineup of capabilities and features. No matter which one you go with, you’ll be behind the wheel of a luxury SUV that’s capable, reliable, and stylish.

The only way to know for sure which of these luxury SUVs is the best fit for you is to take a test drive or two. Shoppers in Arlington, Dallas, and Fort Worth should give us a call at BMW of Arlington today to schedule their test drives!
