Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 X3 receives minor packaging changes for this year. Navigation is newly standard, and some of the switchgear is now silver instead of black. LED headlights with cornering lights are also new on 30i models.

Pros
Sure-footed handling,
authoritative powertrains,
fuel-efficient engines.

Cons
No Android Auto,
small mirrors hamper visibility,
auto stop/start could be smoother.

The 2020 BMW X3 ranked #3 in Luxury Compact SUVs. Currently the BMW X3 has a score of 8.4 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 16 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

The 2020 BMW X3 comes with rear wheel drive, and all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed shiftable automatic.Navigation now included with Live Cockpit Plus and Live Cockpit Pro.

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

Cons

For 2022, BMW gives the high-performance X3 M higher performance courtesy of new engine tuning and internal components from the M3 sedan and M4 coupe. While horsepower ratings remain the same, the regular X3 M now makes 457 pound-feet (up 13), and the Competition variant makes 479 pound-feet (up 37). BWM says the added torque lowers the SUV's already nosebleed-inducing zero-to-60-mph time even further. Competition models also roll on a set of lighter-weight 21-inch wheels.

Pros
Acceleration shames some sports cars,
athleticism defies physics,
more functional than any BMW sedan.

Cons
Stiff-legged ride quality,
too many possible drive-modes adjustments,
loses on fuel economy—if anyone cares.

PROS
A proper M Car soul
Ferocious performance when you want it
Tons of character even at a cruise

CONS
Stiff ride does become fatiguing
Price is getting up there
M Car servicing isn’t cheap
