X3 and XT4: An All-Out Performance Brawl

BMW X3 Performance Specs“Brawl” may seem like too strong a word when you’re looking at compact SUVs. But once you understand their engines, you’ll know just how incredibly potent the 2021 X3 and the XT4 can be.

Between the two models, the BMW X3 boasts more power. Even its standard TwinPower Turbo engine puts 248 horsepower at your service. That figure already surpasses the 237 horsepower you’ll get from every Cadillac XT4. And the BMW has even more engines available!

Soar through the streets with 288 horsepower in the X3 Plug-In Hybrid—or add more muscle as you roam every road from behind the wheel of a BMW M performance vehicle. An X3 M40i, for instance, has 382 horsepower on tap and plenty of sport-tuned features.

How Much Cargo Space? Passenger Space?

Of course, your luxury SUV is made for much more than a solo adventure! The BMW X3 and the Cadillac XT4 seat up to five passengers, and even the rear seats can accommodate the average adult. Need some extra space to stow your adventure gear? Fear not—these two will make room.

Both models feature standard split-folding rear seats, so you can configure the perfect people-to-cargo ratio. With 40/20/40 rear seats, the BMW X3 has more options available than the Cadillac XT4 with its 60/40 split.

All in all, the X3 boasts up to 62.7 cubic feet of cargo space. It outshines the XT4 that has just 48.9 cubic feet available, even with the rear seats folded.
