Best mid size SUV available.
By wittyj on
2013 BMW X3 xDrive35i 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)
Have owned two Tahoes, an X5, and still have a BMW GT 535 and love it. Took delivery of my X3 two months ago. It was delivered in perfect condition by Athens BMW. We have put 2500 mile on the car and average right at 26 per tank. Thats about 1/3 city driving. This SUV is QUICK and with sport sedan handling. The seats are great and visability outstanding. The 8 speed is flexible and always goes to the right gear for optimum passing and handling. My golf bag fits w/o having to put seats down. Luggage space is plentiful and with easy access. Engine runs fine on mid grade. Plenty of storage space for driver and pass. The covered storage just left of the steering wheel holds a small 9mm perfectly
engine transmission combination is awesome. Minimum exposure time when having to pass on rural roads. Headlights are great. The size of this vehicle is just right. Best feature.....ease of entry and exit. Seat height from ground is perfect. Just turn, put your foot down and stand up. Entry is easier than the X5. I drive is much better than earlir BMW's. Intuitive and easy to use. This is indeed the perfect size vehicle. Tested both the 4 cyl. and the 6. Had to have the six. Performance is awesome and fuel economy is very acceptable.
Sun visors are a bit wimpy. They will not cover the side window sufficiently as they do not pull out. They barely cover the front window. Suggest a double visor with the top one being adjustable. Thats about it. This is one very nice mid size SAV/SUV. We drove the GL/ML/GLK/Q5/Tourag, etc. kept coming back to the BMW. You will like it.
