2017 B.M.W X3
The 2016 BMW X3 is a leading light among compact luxury crossover SUVs. That’s pretty remarkable for a vehicle in its sixth year of production, but the X3 pulls it off seemingly without breaking a sweat. Indeed, it’s such a challenge to find fault with this crossover that our only “Con” is its relatively high price.
Among the world’s first compact luxury SUVs, the BMW X3 remains a leader in its category. There are two available engines for 2017: a 241-horsepower, 2.0-litre four-cylinder (xDrive28i) or a 300-horsepower in-line six (xDrive35i). The diesel engine should be available later this year. The X3 is not the only one out there: it will now rub elbows with the Audi Q5 and Mercedes-Benz GLC, among others.
