2013 BMW X3 xDrive35i 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)

Review

Drove BMW 328i for 5 years, now X3 35i. The engine is just amazing! Great acceleration. 8 speed transmission is so smooth that you can only tell changing gears by the exhaust note. Praised by many reviewers as "Fun to drive", "drive like a car", maybe true compare to other SUV, but it's not even close comparing to 3-series sedan. The 328i feels like it's glued to the road and have this solid damping of road roughness, but the X3 is wobbly and makes you feel every little bump. but to be fair, that's the case for all SUVs. I guess that's what you have to give up for a more practical suv.

Favorite Features

Engine and transmission; USB inside the center console, play music from flash drive; Kids like the huge sunroof;

Suggested Improvements

Hard on/off switch of auto start/off; Power plug right next to cup holder, really? Two inner headlights are fake, what's that?
