The sensible, yet stylish cabin strikes a great balance between plush comfort and practical family sensibilities, and it has one of the more comfortable back seats in its class; while the number of useful high-tech features and driver aids is impressive.

Introduction

The BMW X3 crossover offers style, practicality, fuel efficiency, safety and responsiveness, with an 8-speed automatic transmission and available ultra high technology. It’s got great rear-seat and cargo space, making it a versatility overachiever.

For 2015, X3 got a mid-cycle facelift in the headlamps and grille. The 2016 BMW X3 gets no significant changes. Competitors include the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, Audi Q5, Volvo XC60, and Cadillac SRX.

Every engine is turbocharged, including the new, strong and eager 2.0-liter TwinPower four-cylinder, with 240 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. BMW says its time from zero to 60 is 6.5 seconds, but it feels faster. The BMW xDrive all-wheel drive system splits the power 40/60 front/rear, but it can go 100 percent rear-wheel drive when it wants to. But don’t expect much if any off-road talent from the X3.

All models come with automatic Stop-Start, which saves gas by killing the engine when you stop, and restarting it when you take your foot off the brake pedal. We think it shuts off too soon and starts too slowly, and BMW’s one of the shakiest versions of such systems.

New for 2015 was a rear-wheel-drive BMW X3 sDrive 28i. Also available is an all-wheel-drive X3 xDrive28d with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel engine making 180 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque that comes at a low 1750 rpm. The X3 28d accelerates to 60 mph in less than eight seconds, which is average performance, and is EPA rated at 27/34 mpg City/Highway.

If it’s speed you want, there’s the X3 xDrive 35i, with a TwinPower six-cylinder making 300 horsepower and 300 foot-pounds of torque. It accelerates to 60 in a brisk 5.5 seconds, on the way to 150 mph. It’s agile and athletic, astounding for a tall crossover.

This second-generation X3 was launched as a 2011 model and updated for 2015. The 2016 BMW X3 is available with a new Harman Kardon surround sound system and updated USB and Bluetooth.

Lineup

The 2016 BMW X3 sDrive28i ($38,950) is rear-wheel drive. The BMW X3 xDrive28i ($40,950), xDrive28d ($42,450), and xDrive35i ($46,800) are all-wheel drive.

The Technology Package adds navigation, head-up display. The Cold Weather Package brings heated seats all around, heated steering wheel, headlight washers. The Dynamic Handling Package includes active shocks and variable-ratio steering. There is no X3 M, but there is an M Sport Package with aero trim, larger wheels and sport seats.

Walkaround

The BMW X3 looks neither rugged nor flashy. It got new round headlights for 2015. With great proportions, it looks like a tall wagon, not an outdoorsy SUV. It’s lean, pert, and graceful, compared to its big brother the BMW X5.

The crease at the beltline is gracefully swoopy, lowered by chiseled lines at the hood. The nose is tapered just right, not high or blunt like so many crossovers. The LED taillamps are like those on the 3 Series sedan.

Interior

The cabin of the BMW X3 is driver-oriented, uncluttered and with attention to detail, while being soft, warm, and calming. Soft-touch surfaces abound, from the doors on up. The cabin is heavy on chrome and brightwork with glossy black trim.

The familiar BMW instrument panel arcs over the controls, and cants them a slight bit toward the driver. We like the optional sport seats, firmer but more comfortable in the long run because they’re more supportive, with more thigh and side bolstering.

The X3 seats five, with good headroom and especially legroom in rear, thanks to a space that’s carved out under the front seat, for the rear passengers’ feet. And there’s a lot of storage space in back of the rear seat, 19 cubic feet. Drop the 40/20/40 rear seat and it balloons to 56.6 cubic feet. No need to drop it for skis and other long thin things, which can pass through the center of the seat.

Driving Impressions

The four-cylinder turbo is stronger and more fuel-efficient than the six-cylinder of old. It accelerates without hesitation. With the latest design of direct injection, variable camshaft timing, variable valve timing, and twin-scroll turbo-charging, it delivers instant response, with its full 260 foot-pounds of torque all there at a tractor-like 1250 rpm, and it stays with you up to 4800.

The six-cylinder in the X3 35i models ups the ante to 300 hp and 300 pounds, and chops one second off the time to accelerate to 60, from a standing-start launch with no trace of squat or dive, like you’d get out of most crossovers or SUVs. That’s nearly as fast as the venerable and even worshipped M3, with its screaming straight six.

The 8-speed automatic delivers quick shifts, sharp and isolated; it’s muted and smooth yet precise and responsive. The ride is steadier than most crossovers in the class, with very little excess motion.

There’s good cornering feel in slower turns, but the steering wheel doesn’t unwind with much feel. The optional Variable Sports offers more road feel, relaxed on center and at high speeds, while easier to maneuver around tight corners.

The Driving Dynamics Control, a switch near the gear lever, can set Normal, Sport and Sport Plus modes, affecting the dampers, throttle, transmission and steering. No surprise, it feels best in Sport mode, with a firmer ride, tighter cornering, and quicker steering.

Summary

If it’s driving dynamics you’re after in your crossover, with excellent rear seat and cargo space, not to mention great non-SUV-like looks, the X3 is a winner.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
