You’ve probably seen the BMW X3’s around on the roads but maybe you’re not overly familiar. Well, if that is the case then here we give you the lowdown on what you can expect from this large SUV.
BMW have already put over 1.5million of the first and second generation X3 onto the roads globally and it doesn’t look to be slowing down any time soon.
BMW are now on the third generation of X3 and with each edition comes improvements. You can now expect better efficiency, many more gadgets and a much better ride!
You’ll find that the performance is strong whether you choose petrol or diesel, it’s as good on motorways as it is on the backroads with 187bhp being produced from its 2litre engine. Opt for the 3litre edition and you’ll increase the bhp to 261. Whichever model you choose, you’ll only be too pleased with the 8-speed auto gearbox.
Comfort comes as standard in any BMW so it’s not really ground-breaking news to tell you that it copes with everything the road throws at it.
Visibility is fantastic in all directions due to the thin pillars and the deep windows however, you’ll still find front and rear parking sensor for those slightly more tricky manoeuvres. If you’re into your gadgets you’ll love the surround 3D view on the infotainment system.
If infotainment if your thing, you’ll find a 6.5in touchscreen in the lower model X3s, controlled by a rotary dial between the front seats. Choose the M Sport or the M40i models, the system is equipped with the optional Professional iDrive system on a 10.3in screen. Currently, none of the BMW X3s support Apple CarPlay as standard whilst Android Auto isn’t available at all.
The interior boasts sturdy trims, good quality switches, great dashboard plastics and an overall feel of luxury. There is plenty of room in the back for 2 adults to be comfortable, there’s the pull-down armrest/cupholders and there’s ample room in the boot for more than 8 carry-on suitcases!
