Description:
Pros:
  • 8-speed transmission
  • Nimble handling and good ride quality
  • Standard all-wheel drive
  • Good looking redesign over the previous generation
Cons:
  • Cargo area small compared to competition
  • Expensive options
Ruling: The BMW X3 is now as good looking at its bigger brother , the X5, and performs like a sports sedan. The 2011 X3 also offers a comfortable interior that is easy on the eyes.

Redesigned for 2011, the BMW X3 is now bigger, has outstanding performance on the road, and has more standard interior features that go along with its attractive and comfortable cabin.

Available in two trims: the xDrive28i, which has a normally aspirated inline six-cylinder engine, and the xDrive35i, which has a turbocharged six-cylinder. All-wheel drive is standard on both trims. The 2011 model is bigger than the outgoing model, and has a new suspension and transmission, more passenger room and more cargo space. The X3 can seat five people.

CarReview's Opinion of the: 2011 BMW X3 xDrive35is

Likes:
  • Tight & confident handling
  • Decent acceleration
  • Refined interior & build quality
Dislikes:
  • Styling is a step back in time
  • 8-speed automatic is too shift-happy
  • Lacks personality
Ruling: The BMW X3 is a good balance between prestige, performance, luxury and safety. If you're also into driving fast, go for the xDrive35i. Just be prepared to tell everyone that it's the more expensive and faster X3, because most people won't be able to tell the difference.
