  • This is the first year of the third generation of X3


  • Both available engines are powerful and fuel-efficient

Which X3 does Edmunds recommend?

We haven't performance-tested the 2018 X3 yet. But based on our experience with the last-generation X3, we think most buyers will be satisfied with the acceleration offered by the xDrive30i and its four-cylinder engine. Just note that if you intended to equip your xDrive30i with some of the sport-themed add-ons (namely, the M Sport and Dynamic Handling packages) you'll find it costs nearly the same as the M40i, which includes those two packages plus extra features and the more powerful engine.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

7.6 / 10

Interest in any particular car typically wanes as its gets older. Unless, that is, you're talking about the BMW X3. The second-generation X3 was sold for seven years, yet BMW's constant enhancements made this X3 a sales juggernaut long past the traditional life span. Now the company has ushered in a fully redesigned 2018 X3 in hopes of keeping you within the BMW family, even as rival automakers introduce a host of new and recently revised luxury crossover SUVs.

From the outside, it's hard to tell BMW did anything. The 2018 X3 resembles the outgoing model to the point that you might not be able to tell the difference. The X3 itself is longer and wider, though, and the size boost produces tangible increases in head- and legroom for all passengers. Like the outside, the inside of the X3 is massaged rather than overhauled. The central display is now a touchscreen that sticks up from the dash, and it's loaded with the latest iDrive infotainment software and wireless Apple CarPlay functionality. 

The redesigned X3 isn't a revolutionary departure from its massively successful predecessor. From that vantage point, the 2018 BMW X3 might seem like a bit of a disappointment. But as the old adage goes, you don't fix what isn't broken. This newest X3 remains one of our top recommendations for a luxury crossover SUV.

2018 BMW X3 configurations

The 2018 BMW X3 is a five-passenger crossover sold in two trims, each with its own distinct powertrain. Under the hood of the xDrive30i is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (248 horsepower, 258 pound-feet of torque) paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. Standard exterior features include 18-inch wheels, LED headlights and foglights, automatic wipers, roof rails, a power tailgate, a rearview camera, and power-folding, auto-dimming and heated mirrors.

Inside, you'll find an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel with wheel-mounted shift paddles, keyless ignition, adjustable driving modes, tri-zone automatic climate control, power-adjustable front sport seats, a 40/20/40-split rear seat with individual seat recline, simulated leather upholstery, driver-seat memory settings, a 6.5-inch central display, BMW's iDrive infotainment interface, a USB port and a 12-speaker audio system.

There are multiple options packages available for the xDrive30i. The Convenience package adds LED headlights, keyless entry, a panoramic sunroof, satellite radio and four-way power lumbar adjustment for the front seats. The M Sport package adds the contents of the Convenience package, plus 19-inch wheels, more aggressive-looking front and rear bumpers, a sport steering wheel and a simulated leather-covered dashboard. Selecting either of these opens the gates to the Dynamic Handling package, which includes adaptive suspension dampers, upgraded brakes and variable-ratio steering.

The M40i is driven by a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine producing 355 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. Additional features includes adaptive LED headlights, automatic high beams, a sport exhaust, a sport-tuned suspension, front and rear parking sensors, a launch control feature and the contents of the above three packages.

A number of packages can be added to either model. Driver aids are available through the Driving Assistance (forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert), Driving Assistance Plus (Driving Assistance package, adaptive cruise control, front cross-traffic, alert and lane departure warning and mitigation) and Parking Assistance (front and rear parking sensors, an automated parking system and a 360-degree parking camera) packages.

Additional luxury features are included in the Premium (19-inch wheels, heated front seats, navigation, a 10.3-inch touchscreen, a head-up display and BMW Remote Services) and Executive (Premium and Parking Assistance packages, adaptive LED headlights, automatic high beams, leather upholstery, a digital instrument panel and hands-free gesture controls for the touchscreen) packages.

Some of the above features can be ordered as stand-alone options. Additional extras, depending on packages selected, include 20- and 21-inch wheels, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, manual side-window shades, wireless phone charging, Apple CarPlay, a 16-speaker Harman Kardon sound system and a trailer hitch.

Trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the 2018 BMW X3 xDrive30i (turbo 2.0L inline-4 | 8-speed automatic | AWD).


Around town, the eight-speed transmission smartly keeps the 2.0-liter engine right in the heart of power delivery, returning smooth drivability and respectable acceleration. Capable brakes, accurate steering (depending on the drive mode), and enjoyable handling round out a solid driving SUV.


With 248 horsepower, the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine packs a strong midrange that doesn't peter out. It responds quickly and smoothly, so it feels as if you have a little more power than you need. The high 6.0-second 0-60 mph result we recorded should be quick enough for most people.


The light and linear pedal is easy to modulate, and the optional performance braking system easily withstood the abuse of repeated simulated-panic stops. The sensation of tires skittering on pavement can make distances feel a little longer, but not enough to impede the overall results.


It's too easy to turn the wheel in the Comfort setting, making it a little imprecise. Sport mode's additional heft and quickness make it fun and predictable to guide the X3 around. We prefer this X3's thin-rimmed wheel to the chunky one in the sportier M40i.


This is an enjoyable, composed compact SUV. Optional driver-adjustable adaptive dampers make appreciable differences between settings, though we question the real-world value of the sport settings. Despite its all-season tires, this X3 has the agility and cornering speeds often associated with BMW.


The automatic transmission is an excellent match to the engine, serving up appropriate gear ratios and nearly seamless shifts between them. Stop-start can be a bit clumsy, adding a thunk when the engine turns off. Cruise control uses downshifting and brake application to hold speed going downhill.


All-wheel drive and hill descent control come standard. The approach and departure angles are more generous than in the previous generation, and ground clearance is 8 inches. Don't expect to tackle a difficult trail, but the X3 should be fine on an unpaved road on the way to the campground.


The X3 offers all-day driving comfort. It has supportive seats with wide-ranging adjustments and a hushed interior, particularly at a stop. The ride quality is on the busy side, though the suspension soaks up big impacts well. The climate control microadjustments can be overkill.

Seat comfort

The front seats deliver the comfort and support needed for long stints at the wheel. A wide range of adjustments includes lumbar, side bolsters and thigh extensions, ensuring a good fit for everyone. The rear seats feel somewhat flat and firm by comparison, but they do recline.

Ride comfort

The ride falls on the busier side of the spectrum, in part due to the Dynamic Handling package outfitted on our test vehicle. The solid level of control means you feel impacts, but they don't reverberate through the cabin or bounce your head around. This is an adept-riding SUV.

Noise & vibration

At idle, the silence is such that you'll want to check the tachometer to see if the engine is running. There's a little bit of wind noise from the driver-side window at freeway speeds. Engine noise is pronounced under moderate to hard acceleration, but it's not unpleasant.

Climate control

The standard three-zone climate control is quiet and effective, and the optional seat and steering wheel heating acts quickly. You can adjust the intensity of the auto setting and the temperature of the front panel vents independently if you dive deep enough into the menus, which seems excessive.


The X3's cabin is spacious and smartly arranged. Most controls are immediately understandable, and BMW's shifter makes sense once you get used to it. The driver has a good view outward and of the instrumentation. Strangely, the vanity mirrors are tiny and the light placement is unflattering.

Ease of use

The primary controls sit right where you'd expect. It takes time to get used to the shifter, but you'll love it once you learn it. The same goes with the dense infotainment system. We can't figure out why the stereo sometimes shuts off with the engine and other times waits until you lock the car.

Getting in/getting out

The large doors make big openings and aren't too heavy to close. The sills are low enough so you don't have to step up into the cabin, while the seat height feels just right. The generous front and rear head clearances mean you don't have to duck while getting in or out.

Driving position

Various seat adjustment and a manual tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel ensure all instrumentation falls easily into view. The available head-up display sports multiple configurations but disappears when you wear polarized sunglasses. A digital speedometer is only visible in Sport mode.


While the interior measurements mirror those of its competitors, the X3's elevated cabin gives a strong sense of space. There's tons of headroom for all passengers, while foot- and legroom are adequate for even tall folks. Three full-size adults can fit the rear, though they might be uncomfortable.


A tall roof means big windows all around, so there's a good view outside no matter where you look. Cleverly, the rear headrests are short so they don't cut in to your view through the rearview mirror. The large side mirrors and optional blind-spot monitoring make lane changes safe and easy.


The X3's interior relays the look and feel you'd expect from a luxury vehicle, though the overall design doesn't impress as much as that of German rivals. Gaps are tight and uniform, and the switchgear feels solid. Leather, plastic, wood and other trim look a touch behind the curve.


Class-leading cargo space and plentiful interior storage options make the X3 a versatile SUV for family hauling. The door pockets are large and numerous, and we like the small compartment to the left of the steering wheel. Car seat attachments are easy to access, and towing capacity is excellent.

Small-item storage

Both rows of seats have numerous options. The big door pockets can hold a small handbag and sports bottle, while the center tray takes a phone or two. There's moderate storage under the armrest, and the driver even has a small compartment to the left of the steering wheel.

Cargo space

The X3 offers a healthy 28.7 cubic feet behind its second row, which can easily be lowered from release handles in the rear, revealing 62.7 cubic feet of space. The standard full-size spare limits underfloor storage and makes for a somewhat tall loading space. A compact spare is available.

Child safety seat accommodation

The lower LATCH anchors sit behind easily locatable plastic covers that conveniently fold back when you press them. The rear cargo cover blocks your hand while reaching for the seatback anchors, so you'll have to remove it during installation. Spacious interior makes moving a car seat around easy.


When equipped with the optional 2-inch receiver that includes seven- and four-pole connectors, the X3 can tow up to 4,400 pounds. We laud both the capacity, which is among the best, but also the clean integration of a Class III hitch.


The mixed digital and analog gauge cluster looks clean and classy, and the entertainment interface is powerful and quick. Driver aids are similarly impressive in scope but not always reliable. While wireless Apple CarPlay works great, you have to pay for it, and Android Auto is not supported.

Audio & navigation

BMW's latest entertainment interface looks pretty and reacts quickly to commands. It's powerful, too, which means there's a depth to the features that can take some time to figure out. The combination of a touchscreen and rotary dial with a touch-sensitive top makes for easy operation.

Smartphone integration

Apple CarPlay works wirelessly but costs $300. Wireless charging asks more, and Android Auto is not supported. BMW's Connected system integrates a limited set of apps into the vehicle's entertainment system, but none worked with our Android phone. Two USB ports up front and one 12-volt per row.

Driver aids

The surround-view camera system activates when it thinks you're parking, but it often turns on when approaching a stoplight. The availability of advanced safety features matches the segment, but we experienced an inexplicable false positive that triggered an emergency stop in traffic.

Voice control

BMW continues to impress us with its voice control system. It has little difficulty understanding natural language, and it provides control over an alarmingly extensive list of features. The button that activates the voice controls even launches Siri when you're using Apple CarPlay.

Ambient Lighting?
Before I ordered this car I was told, by dealers, it came standard with the ambient lighting, it did not! Nowhere on the bmwusa.com build website nor the dealers computer does it describe this as standard or optional. I ordered leatherette along with M Package & Premium Tier for MSRP of $57,000. Subsequently found out that it is only available with the $1700 leather upgrade, beware when ordering. Otherwise this is a great car.
Review at 1,000 Miles
Lou Wagner,05/01/2018
I purchased this car in mid-March 2018 and now have a bit over 1,000 miles on it. Other cars I considered were mid-sized SUVs from Volvo, Mercedes, and Audi, all of which cost roughly the same when configured with the same packages and options. I also considered the slightly larger Lexus RX. I had to order the car as there were none available that had all the packages and options I wanted, but the car arrived just four weeks after I placed the order. I'm very pleased so far. This is my first BMW, my previous recent vehicles being Lexus and Mercedes. I was pleased that I was able to get the car equipped with regular, rather than run-flat tires. I have averaged a bit over 27 mpg in 1,000 miles of mixed driving. I am particularly pleased with the intuitive controls and very good voice recognition. Both are far better than in previous vehicles I have owned. This is the first car I have had with a heads up display, which I have found particularly useful when using navigation since directions are shown in the display as needed. The front seats are quite comfortable and adaptable. Most car functions can be tailored through the infotainment system screen by accessing menus and submenus, and these can be accessed directly through the touch screen or by using a central controller. Some functions, like answering a call or changing audio volume can be accessed in as many as five ways (button on the steering wheel, voice command, touch screen, central controller, hand gesture control). The adaptive cruise control is also a very nice feature and works well. The shifter and parking brake take a little getting used to. The car has three driving modes, comfort, sport, and economy. The instrument display changes for each of these and the sport and economy modes can be customized. All modes work well but I mostly just drive in comfort mode, which is the default when the car is started. This vehicle may be a little too small and have too little cargo room if you have kids to transport. The car listed for about $56,600 and I got about $3,000 dollar discount. Not a great deal but good enough given that I got exactly what I wanted. All in all, I'm very happy with the vehicle so far.
New .At 3,600 miles Drivetrain Malfunction - Total Lockdown- NO GEARS, no go. Stranded. 4 hour wait for BMW "Roadside Assistance" before tow to dealer. Dealer states "software " but remains vague re. cause. States they have "done all that BMW will allow", but there might be a bulletin coming soon ! Chassis G01, Engine code B46B20M0. Other BMW models with the same engine have experienced Crankshaft Sensor failure resulting in a bulletin requiring Sensor replacement. 2018 X3 is not included in the Bulletin, but SEVEN other models with the same engine are.. After 3 previous trouble free BMWs, this reflects an apparent departure from a commitment to customer safety and security in favor of cost saving for the company.
BMW Hit a Home Run With The 2018 X3
Tom Ivey,01/04/2018
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.

2018 BMW X3 videos

[MUSIC PLAYING] MARK TAKAHASHI: What we have here is all new 2018 BMW X3, fully redesigned from the ground up, but it's kind of hard to tell, because there's not a whole lot different about it stylistically. It has a bigger grill. That's about it. However, it builds on the X3 legacy, giving you plenty of refinement on the inside, giving you great driving dynamics and really all of the luxury appointments and features you would expect. Prices for the X3 start right around $43,000 for this, the X Drive 30i. It's the base engine with A 2-liter turbo charged four cylinder. It puts out 248 horsepower. You can step up to the M40i, with a ridiculous 355 horsepower. My colleagues say it's quite the rocket. As far as interior design goes on the new X3, it doesn't break a lot of new ground. But again, it's an evolution. Things are improved here and there. The overall shape pretty much the same, but I like the materials used. They're just slightly sturdier, a little bit nicer. I like the wood trim here, but there's actually a matte wood option that I really, really like. One thing that stands out, maybe a little out of place, is this cover here. It's a little bit like a roll-top desk. It seems out of place, but it does make way for decent-sized cup holders and one of my favorite features of the new X3. Check it out. That is just a wireless charging pad. Sure. Drop it in there, though, you don't have to have it situated in the perfect spot to have it work. You just toss it on there, like I did, and it starts charging. Even better, this is the first car I've been in that has Apple CarPlay that's wireless. You don't need a USB. I'm so much happier now. One thing I really like about the instrument panel is it's a mix of analog and digital. It's got the bezels on the outside with the numbers on it, and on the inside is a digital screen. No matter what the lighting was on my drive this morning and afternoon, it was sharp and easy to read-- really well executed. Besides the center bin and cup holders, you also have this decently deep central armrest bin. There's also a USB port in there, as well. The pockets in the door-- also well-sized. The pocket, in particular, for the water bottle is very large, so you can probably get two in there, honestly. There are little touches here and there that also make me think that they paid a little more attention to detail with this X3. You have these interesting little shapes here in the vents, and it's echoed again in these top lights up here and also, on the outside, on the headlight bezels, as well as the puddle lamps. As far as comfort goes, these seats are as good as you'd expect from any BMW-- just enough adjustments, as well as thigh extenders for taller drivers, and adjustable side bolsters. So if you're slightly wider or narrower, you're covered-- lots of support, lots of comfort for all-day driving. Materials overall are excellent. Everything's got a nice, soft touch to it where it should be. Also new with this X3 is the latest version of BMW's iDrive. Now, iDrive has already been one of our favorites, as far as infotainment systems go. Add in Apple CarPlay, you start getting better and better. But even better, this is now a touch screen. Apple CarPlay just lends itself to being a touch screen. So instead of having to scroll through with the dial to each hotspot, you can just hit the hotspot you want. So here in the back seat, I'm 5 foot 10, an average size adult, and I have plenty of room-- now, plenty of headroom, plenty of knee room, and my feet slide under the front seat, as well. Materials quality is as good as they are up front. Everything's got a nice, soft touch, refined feel to it. Right here, nice center armrest at the right height between the two, and your typical, over-engineered cup holders. Also, you have your own automatic climate control back here, too. And that's standard with all of the X3s. Overall, I'd be fine back here for a very long road trip. As you'd expect, the BMW X3 has a hands-free power lift gate. One thing I'm not a big fan of, though, is this little step up here. It reminds me of the current Cadillac Escalade. It makes it a little bit harder to load big, bulky items in. Behind the rear seats, you have 28.7 cubic feet of cargo space. That's more than the Audi Q5, as well as the Mercedes GLC class. Another bonus-- these seats flip down with just a flip of the lever. You don't even have to push them down. Another thing I like is, let's say you just pulled something large out of the trunk, and you want to close it. Another swipe of a foot, rather ungainly beeping, and you're all set. Properly equipped, the BMW X3 can tow up to 4,400 pounds. I realize that camera systems aren't the sexiest feature in any car these days, but the X3's deserves a shout out, because it is super clear and crisp. And you have this crazy feature where you can do the tour around the car. It doesn't serve any purpose except for its cool factor. [MUSIC PLAYING] One thing I'm noticing about the X3-- that it's an evolution. And I really liked the previous X3 a lot for the same reasons. It's really quiet. It's really comfortable, and the interior is well-made. It's well put together. They've got great materials. As far as acceleration goes, this base two-liter turbo engine is more than enough for the average driver. At the track, it turned a seven second accel run to 60 miles an hour-- not a barn burner, but man, it's plenty capable for everyday driving. So standard features are these different drive modes. You have sport, comfort, and ECO PRO. Comfort is just fine, and it's going to default to that. One thing I like is there's a big difference between comfort and sport mode. Sport mode stiffens up the suspension, dials out some of that body roll, and you get a little more responsiveness. It will downshift a little quicker. It'll hold gears into higher revs longer. And that was borne out at the test track, as well. It turned in some decent numbers, especially for an SUV. You can, indeed, have some fun with this car on a winding mountain road. [MUSIC PLAYING] So here we are on an uphill on-ramp, and let's give it some sauce. This is in sport mode. Those shifts are a little more aggressive, sort of what you want out of a sport mode. I'm in just regular key it mode right now, which is comfort mode. And I'm about to hit a green light here, and let's see how it does. Now, the first couple of feet, it needs a little bit of time to spool up and get some good oomph out of the engine. But after that, it's very decisive. It's a good punch. And even though it's a smaller four cylinder, it didn't sound bad. It certainly didn't sound like we were stressing the engine. The shifts came quick and smooth, pretty much exactly what you'd expect from a luxury SUV. Visibility is all right. This A pillar here is actually kind of thick, but oddly enough, it's not getting in the way too much. I'm not sure why that is, but that is a significant block in your vision. Out the rear, it's OK, at least through the mirror. Add in features like blind spot detection and rear cross traffic and this really good 360 camera, there's pretty much no guesswork left. This X3 is slightly bigger and more roomy inside. At the same time, it doesn't feel like a bigger, heavier SUV on the road. I am a little surprised that the steering effort is so light. Even in sport mode, it doesn't build up that much. That said, it is really easy to maneuver, because of that light effort. [MUSIC PLAYING] Overall, I really like driving this X3. I really didn't think there was that much they can improve on. But they did. [MUSIC PLAYING] In my opinion, this is a brilliant evolution of the BMW X3. It builds on all of the strengths of its predecessor. It's great to drive. The interior is incredibly refined, and it's packed with smart features. It compares really well against the Audi Q5, the Mercedes GLC class, as well as the Jaguar E-Pace and F-Pace. For my money, though, this is as good as it gets. This is the new class leader.

BMW X3 vs. the competition

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.

Compare BMW X3 & BMW X1 features

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.

Compare BMW X3 & Audi Q5 features

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.

Should I lease or buy a 2018 BMW X3?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
