2017 BMW X3 Review

Overview
When BMW brought the first X3 to market in 2003 they created a whole new class of car: the mid-size Sports Activity Vehicle. The fact that pretty much every other brand played copycat shows just how good that original X3 was. Now it’s even better. Choose from four models: the gas-powered sDrive28i xDrive 28i and xDrive35i; and the diesel xDrive28d. 28i models feature two-liter twin-power turbo inline four engines and your choice of the road-gripping traction of BMW's intelligent all-wheel drive system or the dynamic agility of rear-wheel drive. 35i models feature three-liter twin-power turbo inline sixes. With seating for five the X3 boasts impressive room for heads shoulders and legs—even in the back seat. Or fold down the back seat and there’s over 63 cubic feet of cargo space. From its infotainment system to its driver-assist features the X3 has the technology you want. BMW ConnectedDrive keeps you connected to the world and the Active Driving Assistant helps you move through it safely. Choose from a variety of colors options and accessories and build an X3 that’s all yours. The BMW X3. The original and still the best.
Technology
When you’re an original you can’t rest. So the BMW X3’s ConnectedDrive infotainment system features Bluetooth and the iDrive controller. Add the available navigation system and you’ll get Eco Pro route guidance and an integrated iDrive touchpad too. The available BMW Connected App links your smartphone to your X3 so you can get real-time traffic and parking information among other things. And nothing takes the edge off of rush hour commuting better than the available Harmon Kardon surround-sound audio system. The BMW X3. Simply connected.
Safety
When you’re an original you have to keep moving forward. That’s why every BMW X3 is available with the Driving Assistance Plus Package. Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go takes the stress out of rush hour traffic. Active Blind Spot Detection lets you know when it’s okay to change lanes. The available Active Driving Assistant adds Lane Departure Warning Forward Collision Warning City Collision Mitigation and more. And every X3 comes with Dynamic Stability Control and an Integrated Chassis Management system. The BMW X3. Simply safer.
Performance
Because it’s a BMW the X3’s performance is second to none. 28i models feature two-liter twin-power turbo inline four engines offering a blend of performance and efficiency. 35i models feature three-liter twin-power turbo inline sixes for even more power and 28d models bring the torque and fuel economy of diesel. 28i models offer you the choice of BMW intelligent all-wheel drive’s road-gripping traction or the dynamic agility of rear-wheel drive. Available Dynamic Damper Control lets you choose the kind of ride you want—from smooth and comfy to firm and sporty.
