I decided to replace my 2-yr old Jeep Liberty with a sportier SUV, and found the perfect choice with the X3 3.0i. It is the perfect balance between function and luxury, not as soft and plush as the Lexus and not as utilitarian as the Subaru Forester. Handles like a BMW 3-series and has the hauling capacity of the Jeep liberty.
The best feature is the handling, little to no roll + guick acceleration and tight curves = fun to drive.
I would like to see a hybrid that has the preformace of the 3.0i with an avg. mpg = 30+
