The BMW X3 is one of the smoothest-riding models in the compact luxury SUV segment, but its predecessors could be overly harsh and crude. The second-generation SUV did much to abate those concerns, and a mid-cycle refresh for the 2015 model year added more to love.
One of the biggest concerns we have in recommending the X3 is its price relative to the competition. Acura’s RDX offers more standard equipment at a lower price, all with a comparable (or better) interior quality.
However, almost none of the compact luxury crossovers on the market today can match the X3’s pleasant ride, responsive handling, and energetic motors. Whether buyers choose the base 2.0L turbo I-4, the efficient 2.0L turbodiesel I-4, or the 3.0L turbo I-6, they will be rewarded with fun driving dynamics and reasonable efficiency—especially in the case of the diesel. The X3’s more upright proportions give it better practicality than its smaller X1 sibling as well.
