BMW's heroic performance SUV lineup now has a compact offering in the form of the X3 M and the X3 M Competition. Honestly, we're surprised it took this long for the masters at the M performance division to swap out the X3's already sporty suspension with even sportier gear and drop in a more powerful engine.

BMW's X3 M Competition promises to blend urban family friendliness with spirited road and track performance. But we threw that out the window and instead went rallying in the Outback.

Pros
Impressive surrogate rally car chops
Great chassis on clay
Proper M-spec running gear
Bloody quick on dirt

Cons
Cleaning out the bulldust afterwards
