As it enters its seventh year of production, the 2017 BMW X3 epitomizes the old "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" philosophy. Boasting generous passenger and cargo room, a trio of strong-performing yet fuel-efficient engines, and handling that is more sport sedan than sport utility, the X3 remains a top choice in this segment despite its advanced age (in car years).
The chiseled body of the 2017 BMW X3 does a good job of hiding the fact that it provides plenty of space for passengers, especially in the back seat. And there is ample room for cargo. Indeed, the X3 ranks near the top of its class in both categories in terms of roominess. Additional kudos go to the X3's luxurious cabin for its high-quality materials and user-friendly controls. The latter in particular includes an intuitive and quick-responding touchscreen infotainment interface.
An array of four trim levels, which essentially denote the engine and drivetrain, make up the 2017 BMW X3 lineup. Specifically, they are sDrive28i, xDrive28i, xDrive28d and xDrive35i. The term sDrive equates to rear-wheel drive, while xDrive means all-wheel drive. Further translation reveals that 28i means a turbocharged four-cylinder, 28d means a diesel-powered turbocharged four-cylinder, and 35i means a turbocharged six-cylinder. All versions of the X3 offer quick off-the-line acceleration and impressive fuel economy.
Being a BMW, the X3 commands a pretty penny, and on paper it may not seem to deliver as much value as some rivals. Even still, all of the 28 versions come well-stocked with standard luxury features, such as a power liftgate, eight-way power front seats and a nine-speaker audio system, while the 35i adds a few more perks, such as xenon headlights, a panoramic sunroof, and keyless entry and ignition.
The 2017 BMW X3 offers a winning combination of an engaging and rewarding driving experience paired with a roomy and welcoming interior. When you are in the market, Edmunds is ready to help you find the ideal 2017 BMW X3.

Vehicle xDrive28i 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)
Review My initial love for my X3 turned to pure utter disappointment with the car, the dealerships and BMW U.S.A. within six months of ownership. Rides, drives and handles fine but that's about it. Broke down twice before 15,000 miles with fuel injection and electronics problems. Had to be towed out of my garage! They got it running again but wouldn't fix the console control buttons that were sticking because they said I must have spilled something on them. Wrong, I am so careful with this car I won't allow liquid anywhere inside it. Dealer said they'd be glad to fix them for $$841! Decided to cancel my extended warranty as it was clear to me that I wasn't going to keep this car beyond it's factory warranty period, even though the factory warranty turned out to be pretty useless anyway. I followed the cancellation instructions as provided in the booklet and it took seven months to get my money back and they shorted me $350 despite California law prohibiting any deductions if cancelled within the time frame that I did it. Dealers were awful and B.M.W. U.S.A. even worse. Can't wait to get rid of it and buy a Subaru Forester, which I never should have sold in the first place.
