To help demonstrate how the XT5 continues to set the benchmark for its class, we’ve compared it against the proven BMW X3. Which model will take home the victory in this competitive comparison? Let’s find out!

Although both of these luxury SUVs share virtually identical starting prices, there are some noticeable advantages that you’ll enjoy by choosing the Cadillac XT5 over the BMW X3. While they share very similar performance numbers, the XT5 comes equipped with a more sophisticated 9-speed automatic transmission for superior response under heavy acceleration. With an additional 5 gallons of fuel tank capacity compared to the X3, the Cadillac XT5 is also the better choice for drivers that enjoy taking extended road trips.
Premium technology features are another area where the Cadillac XT5 shines. Features like active lane keep assist and a dedicated teen driver mode help provide confidence and peace of mind on the road, something that BMW simply cannot match. Similarly, the XT5 comes standard with a keyfob-activated remote start system. You’ll have no choice but to shell out additional cash at BMW for this useful feature.
Heating functions for both the driver and front passenger help improve comfort on chilly winter mornings inside the XT5. Once again, be prepared to spend more money at BMW in order to get this feature on the X3. In both the front and rear rows of seating, the XT5 offers significantly more legroom than the X3 as well. Greater rear cargo room means you’ll never have to leave that extra suitcase behind either. Finally, BMW cannot match the superior powertrain warranty coverage and roadside assistance coverage included as standard on every Cadillac vehicle.
Winner – Cadillac XT5
No matter which way you look at it, the Cadillac XT5 is the clear favorite when compared to the BMW X3. BMW simply cannot measure up to the tremendous value, comfort, technology, and cutting-edge engineering infused into the Cadillac XT5. Ready to experience all that the XT5 has to offer for yourself?
