#BMW was one of the first luxury brands to offer a small compact luxury SUV when the first #X3 came out back in 2004. After 14 years, this segment has evolved into one of the hottest categories in America. Although, BMW has fallen behind some competitors over the years, the fully redesigned 2018 model promises to be more luxurious, comfortable, spacious, and fun to drive. The #M40i version has 355 HP from a sweet sounding turbocharged inline 6 but has BMW finally given us the ultimate driving SUV?

      Hey everyone! We’d like to thank you all for clarifying the engine code. We’re not sure where we read this being the N55 motor but it’s definitely the B58. We’re not perfect and sometimes small details like this will slip through the cracks. We apologize for the mistake, hope everyone is having a great Sunday and thanks for watching!

      I’m not sure if you know about BMWs heated and cooled seat setup I’m pretty sure this does have cooled seats because BMW doesn’t put cooled seat button but they put the cooled seats in the infotainment you have to click the heated seat button and the heated and cooled seats show up in the infotainment just wanted to point that out

      Redline Reviews when you say it is not a full M car what exactly do you mean or what does an M car have that this X3 M40i doesn’t?

      I Seriously HATE automatic tilt and telescope. You saw how quickly you were able to adjust it manually. Automatic means something else that can go wrong and is expensive to fix. It stinks to high heaven when you cant adjust something because its electric motors are broken. Please stop insisting on this issue for the steering wheel it drives me crazy :DDDD

      I thought the 360 view camera image quality is better than Lexus, since people keep on saying that it looks so crisp. But actually looks kind of similar to Lexus's quality image.

      Would you prefer to get this SUV or an Audi S5? I know they do not compete directly but have similar MRSP, acceleration and top speed...

      Is that an X3 M40i? It doesn't have the M steering wheel. This reviewed version is really weird compared to other review videos.

      I've heard it will average around 20/21. I'm getting 23 MPG around down in my 30i and close to 30 on the hwy. I think the M40i might get around 25/26 hwy. BMW engines do really good compared to other makes as far as HP to MPG. For a 350 HP motor you see here its damn near top of class as far as gas mileage.

      The inline six has legendary reliability. Now as all far as the sensors and saftey gadgets and high tech its anyone's guess. I bought a loaded X3 30i (4 cylinder version) and its is suppost to be pretty reliable. At least most of the big issues have been fixed. The timing chain was the biggest issue a few years back. I've had mine for 7 months and not a single issue. Now the M40i is the high performance version and will have more crap to go wrong IMO. The 30i has enough power for me. 0-60 in just over 6 seconds.

      Only a smaller area above driver opens. The rest is just glass. There is a nice liner that closes under the glass if you want less light/heat and that is also powered. The glass has pretty good tint/UV protection so I keep my liner retracted back most of the time. Its really impressive when sitting in the back seat. You can see the through the entire top of car. Definitely a must have option if you buy one of these things. You also will want the package that gives you keyless entry. The settings in the car are set to the fobs. So when I use my fob and open door the seat will retract back to my position, mirrors etc.. to my settings. So if you have two drivers its a must have option.

      Normal behavior for the M40i. My X3 30i does not do that. But my 30i probably only hits 130/140 MPH. This M40i will hit 160 mph (260 km/h) easily. And there are YT's that can prove it lol.

      I just tried that exact suv a few months ago. Was not impressed at all. It does not throw you back into your seat. It was quite boring and artificial to say the least. Steering was bland and the fake engine noise was ridiculous. The sound ain’t real. Actually made me laugh. It feels larger than it is when driving. Not good. Best part was the air to water intercooler. So if you pay a bit more you can get an Alfa QV which is another level altogether. Acura? Seriously? Why do people keep comparing anything to the Acura? They are completely different.

      +CrustyRustyMayo Seriously dude the M40i has adaptive suspension and in sport mode this is very stable at insane speeds. Just watch this video. I mean 160 mph or 260 km/h for a SSUV is just insane. Please show me the list of SSUV's that can do this. I'm waiting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bZZoHlT_MpE&t=218s And please lets remember this is a SSUV. Not a M sports sedan.

      no offense man, but I think this car is meant for soccer moms and Hipsters who have an extra money and they want a car thats a lil fast and not that much sound. This car is a small suv, its not a full fledged M car, it only has m suspension and m brakes and a tuned engine as standard compared to a an actual car M car that has it's own engine and exhaust system.

      Notice the model badges on the rear liftgate are sitting a lot higher (pre-production model?) than the ones found on dealer lots today. How awesome would it be if they made the 3 wagons like this...
