2012 BMW X3: Great Interior Design, Wrong Interior Color

May 08, 2012


The interior of our X3 is is hard to fault in terms of its ergonomics, ease of use and overall build quality. I looked, and looked again, and couldn't find any signs of cost cutting. Yeah, I know, an SUV that costs this much shouldn't have signs of cost cutting, but some do.

These seats are as good as the ones in our A8 that costs twice as much, and note the thickness of that steering wheel. It feels great in your hands even if the steering isn't quite as direct as a 3 Series sedan.

About the only thing that would make this interior better is a pair of black seats. Who ordered those anyway? Oh, the boss, that's right. Maybe they're not so bad.
