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.

      Pity you didn’t include in the dislikes the fact the excessively sensitive ambient light sensor (just above the petrol gauge) auto brightens and dims the instrument panel and idrive screen (there is no manual override during daylight). If it’s cloudy and dull outside the map on the idrive screen dims to the point the screen is unreadable. It also impacts the display produced by the surround cameras making it unusable on dull days or manoeuvring from sunshine into shade. I know from my dealer that lots of owners have complained about this and that BMW might release some software in the future to fix. If you plan to test drive the car test this out. Spoils an otherwise great driving suv.

      Why getting x3 then? SUV (or as bmw calls it sav) is not the best solution for primary motorway use, unless you absolutely need high seating position. 3 is much more fun to drive (at least for me) and I got x3 because its easier to get in the car, I sporadically use crappy roads and I need space as well as to tow.

      The interior of the X3 already looks dated compare to the rest of BMWs line up, bar the 1 & 2 which will have a new model soon.
