2006 BMW X3 3.0i 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


X3 is a perfect all-weather luxury SUV with many safety features: front airbags, chest airbags for front passengers, head protection side curtain airbags, ABS, stability control, AWD, daytime running lights, flat tire warning system & telematics assistance. X3 rides comfortably but not softly & it handles better than all other SUVs I’ve driven, including Cayenne, XC90, ML350, RX & GX. Noise & vibration are well-controlled. Interior quality is great & it’s significantly better than those in XC90 & ML350. It’s roomy for 4 passengers but 5 is a tight fit. Reliability is great. Mileage is not good: 12 mpg overall with mostly city driving & a range of 17 to 20 miles per gallon on highways.

Best Features

Safety features, responsive handling, controlled ride, panoramic sunroof, reliability, build quality and navigation system.

Worst Features

Upgrade the nav system to a touch-screen nav system and improve fuel economy
