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

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

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
