Is the X3 just a smaller X5?
By jaredfeiger on
Vehicle
2004 BMW X3 2.5i AWD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 6M)
Review
The 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 vehicle.
Favorite Features
The 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.
Suggested Improvements
Quality, 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.
