The BMW X3 has styling that's smart and suave; a versatile layout; responsive road performance; and impressive fuel efficiency.
It's one of the best picks among compact luxury crossover SUVs. The 2015 X3 might not have the heady enthusiast reputation of the esteemed 3-Series sport sedan, or the sexier shape of the upcoming (and closely related) X4, but it adds up to what makes sense for a lot of image-conscious families.
All X3 versions except for that base sDrive28i come with BMW's xDrive all-wheel drive system, which splits power delivery 40/60 percent. It sends 60 percent of torque to the rear wheels in normal driving but can flex to send 100 percent to the rear; we've found it is especially good for maintaining traction and poise when the road surface is slippery.
At about 183 inches long and 74 inches wide, with a 110.6-inch wheelbase, the X3 has the sensible parking footprint of a compact car, while the added height gives it usefulness as an all-purpose family vehicle. It's sized like the Mercedes-Benz GLK, Audi Q5, Volvo XC60, and Cadillac SRX.
The X3 makes good use of the space inside its footprint. It has properly angled, firm front seats, and they're surrounded by copious head and leg room. The optional sport seats are worth it for the extending bottom cushion and the thicker side bolsters, both of which are great for long-distance drives.
