2021 BMW X3 Review

There’s nothing like an original and that’s the BMW X3—the original premium compact Sports Activity Vehicle. It’s comfortable capable and most importantly it brings the pleasure of driving to—well anywhere you want to go. Choose from four models starting with the sDrive 30i and moving through the powerful M40i. Available BMW Intelligent All-Wheel Drive distributes torque between all four wheels. And there’s plenty of torque to spread around with your choice of two BMW TwinPower Turbo gas engines or the available BMW TwinTurbo Power eDrive plug-in hybrid. But there’s more to the X3 than muscle. Driver-focused ergonomics are a BMW tradition and those creature comforts extend to passengers too. Like three-zone climate control lets front- and back-seat passengers choose their own settings. BMW Live Cockpit Professional features Apple CarPlay compatibility voice control and the iDrive controller. It comes with Navigation too so you get real-time traffic information. Choose from a variety of colors options and accessories and build an X3 that’s all yours. The BMW X3 Sports Activity Vehicle. It’s everywhere you want to go.
When you’re an original like the BMW X3 Sports Activity Vehicle you can’t rest. That’s why the BMW Live Cockpit Professional features Apple CarPlay voice control and the iDrive controller. Gesture Control is available too—just wave your hand to adjust volume change stations and more. BMW ConnectedDrive links your smartphone smart watch and digital personal assistant to your X3 so you can control your X3 wherever you are. Send it directions set the cabin temperature see how much gas you have left and more. The BMW X3 Sports Activity Vehicle. Simply connected.
When you’re an original you have to keep moving forward. So every BMW X3 Sports Activity Vehicle comes with the Active Driving Assistant. Lane Departure Warning Frontal Collision Warning and Active Blind Spot Detection mean you can always drive with confidence. The available Driving Assistance Professional Package adds Active Lane Keeping Assistant with Side Collision Avoidance which steers away from trouble in the next lane. And Active Cruise Control with Stop and Go uses radar to take the stress out of commuting. The BMW X3 Sports Activity Vehicle. Simply safer.
As an original the BMW X3 Sports Activity Vehicle has to maintain a certain level of perfection. BMW Intelligent All-Wheel Drive is available to spread torque between all four wheels as needed. And there’s plenty of torque to spread around too. 258 pound-feet from the 30i’s two-liter turbocharged inline-four. 310 from the 30e’s plug-in hybrid powertrain. And a massive 365 from the M40i’s three-liter inline-six. Dynamic Damper Control is available on xDrive 30i models; M40i models can get the Adaptive M Suspension. The BMW X3 Sports Activity Vehicle. Simply spectacular.
