Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Wi-Fi hotspot now standard.No other significant changes for 2021.

Pros
Wickedly quick acceleration
Grip and handling are excellent
Still as practical as a standard X3

Cons
Excessively stiff ride, even in the softest suspension setting
Tire roar on the highway can be wearing on long drives

By:

For 2021, the X3 M adds newly standard features and some fresh options. Most notably, its infotainment system now includes Android Auto, which had been conspicuously missing. Likewise, a Wi-Fi hotspot and a one-year subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio with 360L are now standard; a matte wood finish is a new interior option. BMW also changes the Competition designation from a model to a package.

Pros
As quick or quicker than many sports cars,
mind-boggling agility for an SUV,
more practical than a sedan.

Cons
Ride is stiffer than desired,
fewer driver-mode settings would be fine,
how much power is too much power?

Inside, there's an updated COMAND infotainment system, a standard wireless charging pad, and a new Energizing Comfort system that links various car features together to simultaneously pamper occupants.

A smooth ride no matter what the road surface
