This is the BMW X3. This second generation of the German brand’s mid-size SUV is crammed to the kidney grilles with equipment, luxury and tech. But what’s it like to drive, and is it as good as rivals from Audi, Mercedes and Jaguar? I find out in this full, in-depth review.

      Own a 2015 x3. Brilliant, runs fast like a sports car but smooth like a sedan.

      It would be useful to point out those features which do not come as the hydraulic boot and extra space plus back seat button

      Better looking interior but still needs work to compete with the likes of MB. Exterior is OKish. Steering wheel adjustment not electric FFS? Ugly alloys. 'Leather' looks cheap. Who uses cigarette lighters these days? Apple fanboys??? Same old stupid gear lever? It's an auto FFS loose the gear stick already!

      Car reviewers should start review the speakers of the vehicle. For me and many others im sure the speakers are a big selling point since a lot of us enjoy listening to music while driving 😏😍 i personally cant drive without music on 🎵

      Most have renowned players in the market. BMW uses Harman Kardon speakers for that matter. Audi has Bose I believe.

      Why is there only Apple play support? Because people buying this car generally have iphones, simple

      I'm not a fan of this X3 generation's exterior styling. Otherwise like it... Good review sir once again and of course nice to see the lovely Sam again too.

      My mom recently ordered one of these and well since she knows I’m a huge car geek I got to spec it out for the most part! 30i xdrive MSport in Sophisto Grey and Cognac Seats. (And plenty of options ofc!) Delivery in December or January. This review makes me impatient for the car!

      M T E Please - if you're a "car geek": don't order the m-sport package. Let the exclusivity and the rarity of the m logo to real m models. I'm tired of passing by shitty diesel or little petrol engines...
