Great Update On The X3!

Having owned both an 2007 X3 and a 2013 X3, I can definitely say that this X3 is an improvement over the previous generation. The interior is better laid-out and has higher-quality finishes than before and compared to the Mercedes GLC300 and Land Rover Discovery Sport that I also looked at. The seats are also much more comfortable than the last X3 and I love the new iDrive and all the tech features! Plenty of power on tap, with seamless acceleration. My only complaint is that you can't hear much engine noise upon hard acceleration. I like that "grunt" I've always received from BMWs and without it I often find myself going 60 on back roads without even feeling like I am.

From RDX to X

Just traded in 2019 Acura RDX for this model. Couldn’t be happier. Although the RDX tech model seemed perfect. (Although there was some tech problems at first) . But, I found this model to be just the right stuff. My X3 gave me a step up in comfort and in tech extras. It’s a great choice.

Excellent X3 with Fun

Just took delivery of my 2021 X3 30i xdrive. Very good car, I loaded with most of the options. I aware current X3 is due for mid-live update by fall 2021, but the current model still the best among compact SUVs. I test drove the 2021 Audi Q5 and feel it is "boring to drive", steering is lifeless... also Volvo X60, not good either... The GLC was OK but then when I seat inside the GLA, I know it also outdated as well. I have the X3 for 4 weeks now and drove for 1700km, everything perfect :)

Very efficient without compromising driving experience or acceleration. Getting about 28 MPG in city with stop and go and around 33 on highways. BMW definitely understate to their mpg.

Fun car with loads of tech and super smooth transm

I test drove both xdrive and M40i versions but chose to opt for xdrive. It has plenty of power and I’m not one to corner the car at 80 miles an hour. It’s super smooth xmission. Ride is super smooth contrary to what others say but I chose Reg tires over run flat. RDX was close second but the hump in the middle and it’s mouse pad killed it for me. They need to update the infotainment system. X3 is suave and powerful and I got to see what it can do as I went to the factory to pick up my car. Fun experience. Have had it for 4 weeks. Seats could be cushier but love I drive, voice commands and stuff. I went for exec pkg so it’s loaded as it comes.
