"I owned a 2011 X3. I was in the market to traded in for a sporty car. I considered Fusion, Edge, Murano, VW CC, Touareg, Volvo S60, V60, XC60, Q5, GLK, and X5. I wanted to maximize Utility, Quality, Performance, and Efficiency out of my budget. In conclusion, I, again, choose 2015 X3, now with M sport look.
Value: I traded in my 2011 X3 on June 2014 at 53.6% of original MSRP. I think that is not bad.
Driving Dynamics: No doubt, every professional car reviewer agrees BMW has best overall driving dynamics. X3 is one good example of it.
Reliability: I owned my first X3 for more than 3 years. I never paid any maintenance, fixing, etc....
Never have any problem. This is one big reason why I want BMW again.
Interior : Thanks to the LCI treatment for 2015 model, I am sure BMW has the best interior material quality of the segment.
Exterior: this is the part I love my car the most. I have been dreaming to get a M sport Package BMW for years. Finally, I drive one now.
Quality: Some said GLK has best built quality of segment. I said X3 is not any worse than GLK.
Comfort & Convenience: X3 has best cargo space of the segment, so I don't need to put further explanation. My wife love the comfortable sport seat and minimal wind noise. At 80 MPH, the wind noise is still very low.
In conclusion, how to define a car of your dream? I think it is that every morning you get ready to work. You go to garage about to drive. You see your car and you feel this is going to be a wonderful day. That is how I feel.
By the way, thanks to its diesel engine, I average 32.3 MPG on my entire 2500 miles. I am very happy at this result."
