You didn't say why you were asking this question but if you are comparing the height of the cargo floor to the underside of the cargo cover when pulled closed (covering the cargo area), then you will find that the height of the X3 with the spare option is about the same as the X5 with or without the spare option. The spare tire option on an X3 raises the cargo floor by 3".

Here are the various heights from the cargo floor to the underside of the cargo cover when closed.. ..

X3 without spare option: 18.5"
X3 with spare option:15.5"
X5 with or without spare option:15.25"

Where you gain space in the X5 is its width and length.
