With millions of CUVs flying off lots there is no doubt, quantities are not limited. However, as good as many of the affordable options are from Mazda, Hyundai, Honda, and Toyota, many buyers are looking for more luxury and refinement. So jumping to a premium brand like Audi, Mercedes and BMW make sense. We try to break down the pros and cons of stepping up to the BMW X3 30i.

      i choose a old RX450h instead of this and never looked back ...greetings from germany. This X3 weighs 1950kg in 2019; a 10 year old RX450h with a 3,5ltrV6 plus Hybrid weighs 2150kg which i think is not so bad for a over 10 year old Luxury SUV without having so much aluminium but airsuspension ;-)

      Does it have a plastic radiator and exhaust manifold? How does the engine compare to the Audio 2.0 ltr turbo engine that was raved about in the review of the Audi A-5?

      It doesn’t have a button to turn on and off the HUD because 99.9% of owners are never going to turn off the HUD so why clutter the dash with a button that will almost never be used! Everything can’t be on the front page.

      BMW’s aren’t worth anything after the warranty runs out. BMW’s need to work on reliability. They are endless money pits.

      Great review. I'd love to buy a M40i but it's 13k more than the 30i... I wonder how the M sport package impacts the driving experience..

      Hello from France 🇫🇷 ! I ordered last week a BMW X3 M Sport package and I’ll receive it in June. Your report is the best I’ve never seen about the X3.

      Why don't you comment on the way it looks and what it actually cost I think you're trying to deceive deceive your viewers, you have no problems mentioning the price of Lexus though,
      the newer Mazda SUVs Drive even better than this BMW and I think theInteriors as good not to mention reliability is going to be better then this overpriced car

      Agree. Six cylinders would fit better with this car. Have the 4 cylinder and its okay, but not great.

      You should do something similar on the Q5/SQ5. I think it feels more solid when compared with the BMW, but the BMW drives more sporty.

      Edit: Didn't realize you had already done the Audi as well. Great stuff here as usual

      Is it that BMW does not use run flats in the US? I mean it is clear that the tire under the cargo place looks like and actually is an after thought.

      PS: So the car has run-flats but still carries a fifth wheel??

      That movable part on driver's seat is the most useless feature. That part is not heated; so in winter only 60% of the seat pad is heated. I'd rather have the regular seat.

      Com'on, how much money BMW paid you? Memory seat is not standard, it's in a $2000 option. Lumbar support is option too. Almost all cars Hyundai/Kia/Mazda come with standard features that is an option on BMW/Audi/Benz.

      As usual, a terrific review. The interior touch screen jutting out of the dash is a horrendous design idea, many manufacturers are doing this now including Mazda and it is just the worst thoughtless poorest design I've ever seen. The way to do the screen properly is the way that it is done in the Porsche Macan. Integrated into the dash excellent in its intuitiveness and function. Savage geese has become the best car reviewer on YouTube.
