The X3 sits comfortable in the middle of BMW’s SUV range, between the compact X1 and the larger X5. It’s more practical but not as sporty as the sleek-physiqued X2. If frugality is key, however, you might want to consider the pure-electric powerhouse, the iX3.
The X3 comes with an array of engine choices to suit your taste. The 4WD xDrive20d offers impressive fuel economy and all-weather performance, at 47.9mpg. However, the xDrive20i is going to be the engine of choice for most city-dwellers, achieving 37.9mpg by WLTP standards. The xDrive30e is a great choice if you’ve got charging facilities and drive mostly around town, with 30 miles of electric-only range.
The X3 is a competent load-carrier, with 550 litres of boot space with the seats up, or a total of 1,600 litres with them all folded down, and a maximum braked towing capacity of 2,000kg means it's also caravan-friendly.
There’s plenty of flexibility when it comes to storage too, with 40/20/40 folding rear seats. The optional comfort pack allows you to recline these seats if you decide that passenger comfort is more important than boot space.
BMW’s intuitive iDrive infotainment system will keep you informed and entertained. Navigation comes as standard on all versions, and M Sport models offer a larger 12.3-inch widescreen display atop the dash for sight-line reading.
