2020 BMW X1 vs. 2020 BMW X3

If you’re trying to decide on a luxury SUV for the Normal or Decatur roads, then it’s time to compare BMW models to find your perfect match. There’s not a wrong choice here, but there might be one that’s a better choice for you.

Compare BMW X1 and X3: Price

Splurging on the gorgeous designs and exquisite engineering of a luxury vehicle is worth every penny, but if you know you want a BMW and are working on a tighter budget, the price points are a good place to start.

  • The BMW X1 has a slightly lower price point that starts at $35,200 MSRP.
  • The BMW X3 lineup starts at to $41,950 MSRP.

That $6,700 difference may not make a big difference over the long period of your loan or lease, but if you’re looking for a lower price point, the X1 is the less expensive choice. Similarly, if you know you’re looking to upgrade your features, that price difference could let you do more with an X1.
