This is the 2016 BMW X3 and it faces strong competition from the Mercedes-Benz GLC, Audi Q5, and Ford Edge. Can this facelift model compete? This 2016 BMW X3 20d xDrive is powered by a 2.0 litre diesel engine that produces 188bhp and 295lb ft of torque. That is sent to the road via an 8 speed ZF automatic transmission and all wheel drive.

The M Sport pack alls a set of smart alloy wheels and a sports body kit. In terms of chassis adjustable dampers are at your disposal.

A premium interior matches the exterior using high quality materials. Boot space is 550 litres or with the rear seats flat that extends to 1,600 litres. MPG is said to be in the mid 50s whilst emissions are 136g/km CO2.

You can have the new 2016 BMW X3 from £33,945 and it is on sale now.

      A couple of things I dont like about mine, is there is nowhere to put my bag other than on the floor of the passenger seat. My pixel xl doesnt fit in the middle storage compartment. (where the phone cradle is). No place to put your sunglasses. My last car was a honda odyssey which was great for a woman driver loads of storage room with two glove boxes, could fit my bag between the two front seats, a little cupboard for sunglasses and gate remote. I also really hate the auto engine cut off on the bmw, and the annoying message that comes up on the media screen every time you start the car. I have run flat tyres on it and that gives the car a hard ride (dont think I will put run flats on again). Over all though I like to drive the car and I think the voice activation is great and the heads up is good. Just wish it would tell me what the speed limits are! Over all though pretty happy with it.

      I love mine. Still discovering gizmos didn't realise it had. Some basics missing from a premium brand. Why doesn't rear wipe cut in automatically on reverse. Cheaper models retract mirrors when locked. With key fob cloning why don't they put an "off" switch?

      If you hold your lock button down the outside mirrors retract. Same if you hold your finger down on the door if you have comfort access.

      you said it has 9 speed which was strange for ZF and then probably realized and corrected it as 8 speed @2:47

      Fair enough, like you said that centre console is fairly dated and needs a re-think. Thanks, well as they are similar sized SUVS both from the top end of the market I thought it could be a interesting match. Excellent, looking forward to both the comparison and the new RS vid!! That pic was taken at Ford Fair 2016 it was utterly amazing to be completely surrounded by RS''s from the MK 1 to the current model.

      To be honest, this model isn't far away from being replaced. However, we are looking into more comparison video and it would be great to get this cars successor involved with the Land Rover. Great suggestion. Looking at your profile pic you might also be pleased to know there is anther little Focus RS video coming next week.

      Even as a BMW owner I can see the current generation of BMW's is showing their age, inside and out. You can see the dash and controls are just an evolution of the original E90 mid 2000's era. Audi and Merc have moved way ahead (the Ford is a marmite). Excellent vid :)

      :) The new M5 is due too, so the current one will become a real performance bargain. They really dont hold their value well. Even that car's interior looks old now and not befitting BMW's performance flagship.

      Thank you. I'm glad you liked it. The next generation of BMW's really kicks off with the new 5 series later this year. From there the all-new models should come soon after.
