The new and improved BMW X3. Better suspension, lower emissions, sportier look. The X3's facelift really seems worth it. With just one engine available, a 184bhp 2.0 litre diesel the X3 is capable of reaching 130mph and can go from 0-60mph in just 8.5 seconds. Either a smooth shifiting 6 speed manual gearbox or an 8 speed auto gearbox is on offer although the manual feels a little underpowered compared to the auto, suprising when they are both using the same engine but the shorter ratios of the auto may be what makes that difference. The X3 is rather agile for its size and with sharp steering and a firm yet smooth suspension your ride will be pleasant. The X3 has a sports button which speeds up throttle response and an 'xDrive' 4wd system which only enhances it's good road manners. 5 adults can be seated comfortably in the X3, the middle seat may feel a bit small when all adults are sat in the rear but still managable and the X3 is higher, wider and longer than before, meaning more head and leg room.
The BMW X3 is a quiet and refined vehicle, minimal road noise can be heard but wind noise is a let down and can get noisy on the motorway but is otherwise generally quite alright. The X3 has a generous 550 litre boot space and the rear seats split and fold 60/40 to allow a huge 1600 litres of space. There can also be a 40/20/40 seating arrangment to allow carrying awkward or different loads for instance a driver with 2 passengers and 3 mountain bikes would fit in this layout. Roof rails come as standard with the X3 so extra load can be carried and between 2000kg and 2400kg can be towed. The X3 has an elevated driving position which allows a good view of the road and the small 'A' pillars mean entering and exiting junctions is easy. Both the seat and steering wheel are adjustable to allow the driver to find that perfect position. Controls are all logically laid out so you don't have to study the dash as your driving just to turn the heating on. Overall the BMW X3 is a great competitor to all of its rivals, fun to drive and great both on and off road the X3 really is a capable vehicle.
