2012 BMW X3: Power To Please
December 28, 2012
Man, there's just no replacement for the kind of punch that our 2012 BMW X3 delivers when you're dealing with moronic holiday freeway traffic. I took the X3 from Los Angeles to Sacramento and back and was so glad I didn't take something pokier. Sure, on I-5 there were the usual "left-lane trains," but this time there were scads and scads brain-dead motorists just crawling along in the left lane without a clue in the world that it's a passing lane. It was like a zombie slalom out there, and the X3's sheer thrust helped make a crummy drive a little more bearable.
