. What a great drive
Coming from 530i, best drive I could ever expect. A bit intimidating at first with all the bells and whistles it easy to learn. Never flown a space ship I guess it’s as close to flying one. Quiet, very comfortable Interrior and fast 4 cylinder engine. Happy to have gotten my BMWX3.
BMW Hit a Home Run With The 2018 X3
If you are looking for a SUV with a real transmission (not a CVT), excellent acceleration and handling, good MPG, comfortable ride, and all the high tech anyone could desire, then the 2018 BMW X3 is your car. I drove the CRV and the CX5, and while they are considerably cheaper than the X3, they do not deliver the overall satisfactory driving experience of the X3. The X3 is very solid and quite inside, with little road noise, and while it is not as sporty as a BMW 3 series, it does a great job in balancing between comfort, performance and technology.
Improved in many ways, but not as exciting
The 2018 X3 is much improved in many ways over the previous model. The question is, are the improvements ones that BMW drivers were looking for? The new X3 is much quieter, smoother, and is very comfortable. But BMWs, at least in the past, were known for being fun to drive. The new X3 is not bad to drive. Acceleration is great and steering feedback is not terrible. However, the suspension is certainly more soft than previous versions. The suspension seems to waft and sway and upon braking the nose of the car pitches and dives. Not exactly something I'd expect from a German sports activity vehicle - more from a 1970s Detroit car. The technology improvements are apparent, and the Harmon Kardon stereo also sounds terrific. I'm disappointed that despite this X3 being bigger than the previous model, cargo capacity is actually less. This is a great car for a technology guru, all-around family vehicle or road trip vehicle, but if you are looking for that classic BMW handling feel, look elsewhere.

BMW X3 vs. BMW X1

If you like everything about the X3 but want something just a little bit smaller or less expensive, the X1 is right up your alley. The lighter X1 makes similar power to the four-cylinder X3 but gets better fuel economy and can still fit four adults comfortably. Of course there's comparatively less cargo capacity, and the X1 lacks the option of a more powerful engine.

BMW X3 vs. Audi Q5

Also redesigned for 2018, the Audi Q5 is the X3's closest competitor. It uses a similarly powerful turbocharged four-cylinder engine and comes with standard all-wheel drive. So similar are these two rivals that it's going to come down to personal preferences with regards to styling and minor details. The Audi focuses on a clean, minimal design while the BMW has a bit more flair.

BMW X3 vs. BMW X5

The X3's bigger brother offers more than just more cargo space and interior room. You get more engine options — including a plug-in hybrid and a storming turbocharged V8 engine — as well as more luxurious appointments. Of course, having more of everything costs more. And in the case of the X5, that means spending nearly $15,000 more to get a base-level model.
