The new BMW X3 is a far cry from its predecessor. This new all-wheel-drive model is an outstanding piece of machinery which actually drives and handles like a sports coupe, and looks so much better than the last one!
The performance from the new engines is truly breathtaking and to think that they only use around 5 to 7 litres of fuel per 100 kms is amazing. There are four versions which you can buy:
The xDrive 30d is a 6 cyl. diesel with 190kW which can accelerate to 100km/h in 6.2 sec. That’s quick!
The xDrive 20d is a 4 cyl. diesel with 135kW and the fuel economy is 5.6 litres per 100 kms.
The petrol versions are both 4 cyls. and come in a xDrive 20i and a xDrive 28i. The 28i is a turbocharged version with 180kWs of power and can accelerate to 100 km/h in 6.7 sec. Not bad for a 4 cyl!
What I really like is the high ground clearance which enables you to park anywhere without worrying about damaging the front spoiler.
If you’re looking for a spacious, powerful, economical and safe vehicle you really can’t go past the X3. It’s that good!
