Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

BMW's second full-electric car is a little more 'normal', a pragmatic EV that can go a long way on a charge

Pros
Goes a long way,
quietly on relatively little electricity

Cons
Doesn't explore electric packaging possibilities.
Not 4WD

The BMW iX3 is good to drive and practical, with a better range than rivals, namely the Audi E-tron and Mercedes EQC. It also has a fab infotainment system and a smart interior, so it’s a fine buy if you’re looking for a big electric SUV.

Pros
Longer range than most direct rivals
Great infotainment system
Comparatively well priced

Cons
Not as fast as rivals
Audi E-tron is quieter
Tesla Model 3 has a longer range and faster charging

By: 
whatcar.com

Pros
Drives like a BMW should
Looks won't alienate EV newbies
Impressive range and performance

Cons
High price and costly options
No lower-powered versions
Facelift models have already appeared
