i am not sure about how the cargo space is calculated by bmw...i will look in a moment too figure that out. but yes the x3 does have more cargo room than the x5. if you look at both cars next to one another the floor in the trunk in the x5 is alot higher up than that of the x3 thus giving it more room. The cargo capacity of the x5 is probably with the seats at full upright position, could you have calculated it with them at most reclined position? anyways ill look here in a second and see what else i can come up with.
edit: one second on autos.com answered that question the cargo capacity for the x3 and x5 IS taken with the seats folded down. in fact the cargo calculations for the volvo and the lexus are done the same way.
