How does the Range Rover Evoque compare to the BMW X3?

Many shoppers that come to our Seaside dealership for a new Land Rover model are loyal to the brand, but of course there are those who are testing out a few luxury SUVS to find the right one to take back to their Monterey CA home. Today, we want to compare our Range Rover Evoque to the BMW X3.

  • Off-Road Capability: right away we have to touch on the off-road capabilities! The Range Rover Evoque, in true brand form, is meant to go places. If you want to get away from Salinas pavement and go off-roading, the Range Rover Evoque can wade through up to 19.7-inches of water, climb rocky hills, and go over challenging terrain. While BMW might use the term 'Sport Activity Vehicles' to describe their larger models, they don't have the same adventurous sensibilities as the charming Range Rover Evoque.
  • Style: looks are subjective, we know, but if you want the best of both worlds —a vehicle that says I know luxury but I also know athleticism and hard work — then you might find the Range Rover Evoque more visually stimulating. The BMW X3 is admittedly an attractive vehicle, but it doesn't have that edge you'll find on our pick! Also, you can get a convertible option for the Range Rover Evoque and that’s a pretty spiffy feature that the BMW X3 doesn't offer.
  • Trims: if you're shopping for a BMW X3 for your Santa Cruz CA garage, you'll only have three options. Since we think variety is ideal, you'll enjoy having six Range Rover Evoque trims to sort through, and the brochure is straightforward, so you won't feel overwhelmed.

While we'll always choose the Range Rover Evoque over the BMW X3, we understand that we might have a bit of a bias. If you're still on the fence, we think the best way to decide is to come into our dealership. Once here you can see the Range Rover Evoque in person, check out its technology and amenities, and head out on a test drive where you're sure to fall in love with the luxury SUV!

Afterward, you can sit down in our finance center to go over rates for buying or leasing, see how easy it is to schedule service for when you need to bring your Range Rover Evoque in for maintenance, and learn about our amazing concierge station.
