The prices of both of these models are set quite high. Well, and it is not a wonder, as these two models are very popular and are considered as ones of the best on the market. The price of new Touareg is equal to $43,450. While new BMW X3 has a price tag set a little higher, just couple of dollars below $50,000. But let’s see what these two cars have under the hood. The core of the Volkswagen Touareg is the big and powerful 3.6-Liter V6 that is capable of producing 280-horsepower. New BMW X3 seems to not lag behind as its core has lower volume but bigger power output, its engine is the 3.0-Liter 300-horsepower I6. With lower volume new BMW has higher fuel economy, offering 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. New Volkswagen in turn provides you with 17 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway. Both SUVs come with all-wheel drive systems.
