Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

The 2019 BMW X3 ranked #5 in Luxury Compact SUVs. Currently the BMW X3 has a score of 8.6 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 13 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

Fifteen years ago, it might have been difficult to foresee the success of the X3. Back then, BMW's 3 Series wagon set the standard for the class and offered all the practicality you could want in a vehicle that size. Why get something that didn't handle as well and got worse fuel economy? But that original 2004 X3 helped pioneer the entry-level luxury SUV class, and the 2019 X3 is now a hugely important staple in the BMW lineup.

Pros
Both available engines are fuel-efficient and powerful
Wide variety of standard and optional features for personalization
Plenty of room for front and rear passengers

Cons
Android Auto is conspicuously absent from the options list

Stunning speed and carpool-duty comfort in one pricey package.
Once you’ve driven a BMW X5 M, you just might have a hard time convincing yourself that any other SUV will suffice. Could the dry cleaning be dropped off, the kids picked up, and the five-inch puddle from the broken water main be forded in a regular X5 or a Mercedes-Benz GLE-class? Surely.

Pros
Absurdly quick,
credibly seats five,
luxurious interior comes standard.

Cons
Comparatively small cargo hold,
too many drive modes,
lack of active safety tech.

By:

The 2018 BMW X5 M handles everyday SUV duty with comfort, style and refinement. It's also ridiculously fast and cuts winding roads like a knife. How fast? It dashes from zero to 60 mph in 4 seconds flat, a shade faster than BMW's iconic M4 sport coupe. Now wondering whether you need an SUV that makes more than 500 horsepower or reaches a top speed of 160 mph misses the point. It's best to just marvel at a machine that can take you for both a sedate run to Costco, or to county jail for excessive speed, with such ease.

PROS
Outlandish acceleration and handling for an SUV
Interior materials are impeccable
Front seats are comfortable and supportive

CONS
No option for a third-row seat
Sporty suspension may feel too firm for some drivers, passengers
Gas pedal sometimes responds slowly in low-speed driving

By:

A backup camera is now standard, as are trapezoidal tailpipes for the 35i and 35d models.The high-performance X5 M is powered by a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 engine that makes 567 hp and 553 pounds-feet of torque. The engine works with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and power is routed to all four wheels. BMW says the X5 M can hit 60 mph in just 4 seconds. As expected of a performance offshoot, the X5 M has unique bumpers, aggressive side sills and highly bolstered sport seats.

Pros
Seat comfort
Handling
Cabin materials
Diesel's estimated fuel economy
iDrive control system

Cons
Leather upholstery not standard
Awkward liftgate and tailgate combo
