BMW X3 SUV | Crossover 



  • 8-speed transmission
  • Nimble handling and good ride quality
  • Standard all-wheel drive
  • Good looking redesign over the previous generation
  • 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.

Gas consumption
8-speed transmission
Soft plastic used on dashboard - safety
good corner control


front lights

I get about 21/30 mpg city/hwy and the consumption with premium gas - This is 7.6/10.8 L/100km.
I tried the corner control and it worked excellent - took a 90deg turn at high speed and the corner control kept my car on trajectory.
Also the 8-speed is excellent and the Brake Energy Regeneration which is a motor that charges a battery any time you have the foot off the gas helps significantly with fuel economy.
I like to drive this little SUV.
