Serving Houston, TX

The luxury SUV is one of the most sought-after vehicles in society today and for good reason. This type of vehicle has a plethora of qualities that most auto enthusiasts seem to prefer. Great styling, plenty of power and fine attributes can all be found in this type of SUV. The 2019 Jaguar F-PACE and the 2019 BMW X3 are at the pinnacle of their class, but these two SUVs have some distinct differences. Though both SUVs are fairly premium, only one will come out on top. Let's see how the new F-PACE stacks up against the new X3.

Exterior Appearance

The 2019 Jaguar F-PACE is basically a genuine work of art. Unlike most modern-day SUVs that posses square edges, this SUV possesses smooth curves that are fluid in motion. Every square-inch of this vehicle is sculpted to precision. The F-PACE features a contoured hood that slopes downward into the front fascia in one motion. It's black-mesh grille perfectly matches the huge air ducts at the front of the vehicle while the rear sports a pronounced haunch that gives off a nice aerodynamic design. The rear taillights are horizontally sketched across the frame, and the quad exhaust completes the look nicely. This vehicle's exterior has no weaknesses or flaws to mention. The 2019 BMW X3 has a sporty design that's fairly athletic. Drivers will get eight inches of clearance from the ground below, and this SUV has striking contours along its side-door panels. The front of the BMW X3 is its showpiece thanks to the brand's iconic kidney-shaped grille. The front LED headlamps are nicely sculpted to perfection, but the rear of the vehicle looks rather bland to a certain degree as it lacks aggressive styling. On an overall level, the X3 has a nicely built frame, but it falls a bit short to its competitor.

Performance

The new Jaguar F-PACE is primed for performance thanks to having an impressive drivetrain. There's a 3.0-liter V6 that's supercharged to perfection. This engine will produce up to 380 horsepower as well as 332 pound-feet of torque. On the other hand, there's a 5.0-liter V8 engine that produces up to 550 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque. These all-aluminum engines will deliver instant acceleration and a tantalizing soundtrack thanks to being connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The new BMW X3 will offer two different engine types. The brand's 30i engine has four cylinders, but it's twin-turbocharged. This engine will generate 248 horsepower as well as 258 pound-feet of torque. This 2.0-liter engine is also equipped with high-precision direct injection. BMW's M40i is a 3.0-liter engine that generates up to 355 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque. This twin-turbo V6 engine will reach a top speed of 155 mph.

Features

The 2019 F-PACE is packed with an abundance of wonderful features. This vehicle produces an excellent driving experience thanks to its electric power-assisted steering and adaptive-driving dynamics. The vehicle's lightweight architecture produces a well-balanced 50/50 weight distribution, and the SVR trim will go from zero to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds. The 2019 X3 can be purchased with a number of additional add-ons for the bumper and rocker panels. Weight distribution is also well-balanced at 50/50, and there are 18-inch Y-spoke wheels. BMW has done an amazing job of incorporating dynamic-stability control for ultimate traction.

In the end, the 2019 Jaguar F-PACE comes out on top because it offers more practical and usable features. Jaguar Southwest Houston has a nice selection of this model so come on down and take a test drive today.
