It puts a strong emphasis on the "sport" in "sport/utility vehicle."

With the BMW X3, owners get to enjoy the driving dynamics of BMW's sports sedans, with the added functionality of a SUV. The X3 has less cargo-carrying ability than many other SUVs, but it'll provide all-season performance that resembles its sedan siblings.

Driving It

In our full review of the 2015 BMW X3, we noted that "the 2015 X3 SUV is a luxury car, meaning it's quiet, comfortable, and feature-laden to the point that you might actually look forward to your commute, instead of dreading it."

Consumer Opinions

Fairway B loved the X3 after getting behind the wheel, then discovered an even better feature over time: "This is my first BMW. When I was shopping for a vehicle with these options, I found the price of the BMW was just a little more than most 'American' SUVs. After driving the X3, wow - I wanted this car. Almost forgot: I get an average of 30 miles to the gallon." See more consumer reviews of the BMW X3.
