BMW X3 Overview
The X3 is one of the best upscale SUVs we've tested, with agile handling and a beautifully finished interior. The ride is composed, although the body tends to rock side-to-side on uneven pavement. The 2.0-liter, turbo four-cylinder returned a very good 23-mpg overall and the eight-speed automatic shifts seamlessly. But the 28i version falls a bit short on refinement, with a diesellike clatter marring the luxurious tranquility. Firm and supportive seats keep the driver and front passenger comfortable all day. The rear seat is roomy, though the cushion is a bit low. Some controls take time to master, and the optional rear-view camera is a must. Reliability has been average. A 2015 update includes a 2.0-liter diesel and a rear-wheel drive version.
