The 2021 BMW X3 SAV vs. The 2021 Tesla Model X

The 2021 BMW X3 SAV is built to navigate the twists and turns of life, regardless of which route you choose. This compact SAV comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission, adapting with lightning quickness to driving conditions.

You'll love how this shiftiness combines with straight-up power to give you a drive tailored to your Laguna Beach lifestyle. With engine options ranging from the xDrive30e to the X3M40i, you can enjoy a more personalized performance.

If you're looking for a grittier ride, you can also select available xDrive, which provides all-wheel drive and a commanding grip on the road. You can handle any terrain around San Juan Capistrano with this superior driving system.

Of course, you'll want to make sure everyone stays entertained throughout the trip. That's why the BMW X3 offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which is something that isn't available in the Model X.

While both vehicles bring a lot to the table, the Tesla Model X cannot match the versatility and sense of adventure that drive the 2021 BMW X3. When your trips head off road, BMW is the clear way to go.

The 2021 BMW 530e vs. The 2021 Tesla Model S

Blending efficiency and elegance into a streamlined design, the 2021 BMW 530e enables you to excel at life while leaving the 2021 Tesla Model S in the dust. Whether you care more about athleticism or comfort, this sedan has it all.

The BMW 530e is equipped with plenty of firepower, boasting an available engine with 288 horsepower that kicks into high gear in under six seconds. This is the kind of explosiveness that you don't see often with luxury.

However, you don't need to worry about burnout due to the sedan's plug-in hybrid status. You can cruise for over 20 miles around Mission Viejo on pure electric power, making for a cleaner and more pristine drive.

Tesla Model S

To make things even easier, BMW provides a charging cable for home and has partnered with EVgo to give you electricity on the go. Increasing your electric range won't be an issue when you tap into BMW's vast network of nationwide chargers.

The Model S can't compete with these exclusive perks, and this becomes even more apparent when you turn to the interior. The BMW 530e woos with ambient lighting, 16-way front seats, and more to create a cozy cabin.

The 2021 BMW 530e has mastered the art of producing a potent performance while providing a peaceful interior, which is something that the Tesla Model S has yet to learn.

The 2021 BMW 330e vs. The 2021 Tesla Model 3

If you're someone who prefers a more classic look while leveraging plenty of prowess, then the 2021 BMW 330e is the car for you. The 2021 Tesla Model 3 certainly has its bright spots, but these are outshined by the balanced personality of the BMW 330e.

As another plug-in hybrid, the BMW 330e delivers a seamless experience between electric and reliable engine driving. You'll feel every ounce of energy churned out by the 2.0-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo engine, giving your ride extra flare.

The electric motor still allows you over 20 miles of clean driving, so you can make quick errand trips in Lake Forest, CA without leaving a trace of emissions.

Of course, the BMW 330e overlooks no details, making sure you stay comfortable on any trip. This sedan offers a spacious cabin and trunk area while providing smooth handling to elevate your confidence.

Remaining true to the BMW belief in having options, the BMW 330e also comes in a M sport package for those desiring even more potential packed into the design.

The Tesla Model 3 fails to impress when compared to the well-rounded features of the BMW 330e. Once again, the timeless tradition of German engineering proves that BMW remains the top contributor in the luxury segment.
