2012 BMW X3 Long Term Road Test

April 13, 2012

By the end of my snowboarding road trip in our longterm 2012 BMW X3, a bit more than 600 miles had been covered. Most of the trip entailed 80-mph cruising and a modest payload. There was a climb to more than 7000 feet in altitude (and then back down). Traffic was light while en route, though there was the usual L.A. nonsense upon departure and arrival.

Fuel economy for the trip penciled out to...

21.2 mpg

That's a tick over the EPA combined number of 21 mpg. Considering the travel conditions of the trip, does this result meet your expectations?
