Is the X3 just a smaller X5?

ReviewThe X3's performance is outstanding as you
would expect from any BMW; however, the
interior quality and materials are definitely
sub-par for a BMW and come nowhere near
matching the X5's much nicer and more
expensive interior. Overall, I feel like the car
isn't as solid as an X5 (the doors are lighter, it
also feels much lighter when you drive it),
although it handles very well. For $48,000
fully equipped, you should definitely get more
quality for your money, but it is a good
Best FeaturesThe xDrive AWD system is phenomenal and finally brings BMW's system to the level of Audi's Quattro. The power transfer capabilities help tremendously in aggressive driving situations.
Worst FeaturesQuality, without a doubt. The interior of the vehicle is very plasticky - and hard plasticky. It really doesn't feel like mid $40k vehicle, and BMW should have done a little better in this regard.
