Based on the BMW 3 Series platform, the X3 SUV was launched in 2003. Now in its third generation, the X3 prides itself on being a small SUV that's quiet, spacious & engaging to drive. Not much has changed for the 2020 X3 as its available engines, standard features & option packages remain broadly the same.
The X3 comes in only the one SUV body style but unlike some SUVs, this one is fun to drive & features a roomy, well-built interior, making it a real contender in the class. Options are plentiful, & the interior is big enough to comfortably seat adults in the front & rear.
The previous X3 was always a top choice in this class when it came to driving dynamics, & that hasn’t changed with this new model. If you’re looking for something that feels a bit more energetic, there are multiple high-performance variants as well. Some rivals the X3 is going up against include the Q5, XC60, & GLC, & that’s a lot of letters. Overall, the 2020 BMW X3 is an impressive SUV that is easy to recommend if you're shopping in the small luxury SUV category.
“With BMW’s intelligent xDrive, semi-autonomous driving systems, enhanced aerodynamics, & a BMW TwinPower Turbo in-line 6-cylinder diesel engine, the BMW X3 Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) is clearly on a mission to deliver an unrivalled driving experience.”
