Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Audi has simplified the Q3 lineup for 2021 by dropping the top-flight Prestige trim level and splitting its features into available Technology or Convenience packages on the remaining Premium and Premium Plus trims. The entry-level Premium model now comes standard with power-adjustable front seats, lane-departure warning, and steering-wheel-mounted shift paddles. The Convenience package now includes an auto-dimming rearview mirror with an integrated compass, heated power-folding exterior mirrors, and LED interior lighting.

Pros
Sharp styling,
plentiful tech features,
spunky driving demeanor.

Cons
Tight rear quarters,
noticeable turbo lag,
a few cheap interior materials.

The 2019 BMW X3 ranked #6 in Luxury Compact SUVs. Currently the BMW X3 has a score of 8.7 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 22 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Powerful engines
Nimble handling
Spacious, supportive seats
Above-average cargo capacity

Cons
Rivals are more opulent inside
Above-average starting price

By: 
usnews.com

The X3 also becomes a more full-fledged member of the BMW family with its upgraded interior. And at a time when some of the brand’s passenger-car offerings have strayed from BMW’s historically strong dynamics, the new X3 makes an encouraging showing there as well.

Pros
Chassis tuning like BMWs of old,
improved interior,
plenty of passenger and cargo space.

Cons
Imprecise variable-ratio steering,
goofy electronic shifter,
the entry-level four pales next to the six-cylinder.

By: 
caranddriver.com

The 2019 BMW X3 is a versatile compact crossover that delivers on rising expectations.

Pros
Handsome exterior
Responsive and sharp powertrains
Standard automatic emergency braking this year
Good outward vision
Ample interior room

Cons
Can easily reach more than $60,000
CarPlay with a subscription? Really?
Conservative compared to competitors
No electrified version yet
Relatively heavy steering
