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. Subscribe – http://www.youtube.com/c/Carwow?sub_c...

If you wear headphones, your mind won't be blown, but it will go, "woah." I'm also the producer for the Winding Road YouTube Channel: http://youtube.com/windingroadmagazine Here on TheTopher, I'm known for putting a camera on my face and driving cars. Whether it's about any of my personal cars or reviews on weekly test vehicles, the goal is to give you an idea of what a certain car is like to drive or live with. Most of my videos are filmed in POV, with my clothes on, and (for like the 5th time) with in-ear binaural audio. Which, if I haven't made it clear yet, is why you should wear headphones. Because of the whole "woah" factor. It's there, trust me. Try it, you'll see! Or don't. As long as you whitelist me on your adblocker I'm okay with whatever you do or don't do with regards to headphone usage. That is all. Oh and I guess you should also probably subscribe. Why are you still reading this, you should be watching the video. With headphones! Hah, had to sneak that in there one more time. Later!
Big thanks to Patrick BMW in Schaumburg, IL for allowing me to take a test drive and do an in-depth features tour.
Compact crossovers are hot. But competition in the luxury SUV category is fierce. How fierce? Over the last couple years, we’ve seen new players from Volvo, Jaguar, Range Rover, Mercedes-Benz, Alfa Romeo, Audi, Infiniti, and BMW. And this summer we’ll have the new Acura RDX in the dealerships. With consumers quickly shifting to SUVs, BMW redesigned its X3 to make it more attractive to buyers who want something more than a premium SUV.
The task isn’t easy. The third-generation X3 has been in U.S. dealers since last November, and from December to February, the X3 has suffered a decline in sales. In the first two months of this year, the Bavarian compact SUV is down 13.1 percent, selling 6,235 units in that time frame. Acura, for example, sold 6,727 units of the old RDX in the first two months of the year, and Mercedes put a whooping 10,196 units of the GLC on the streets during the same period. BMW, however, expects that sales of the new X3 will revamp pretty soon and is increasing its production at the Spartanburg, South Carolina, plant.
Propelled by a 2.0-liter turbo-four engine that produces 248 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, the X3 uses an eight-speed automatic transmission that sends all of that power to the four wheels through a rear-biased all-wheel-drive system. To see how that formula works, we took it to the track to run our standardized tests. The 2018 BMW X3 got from 0 to 60 mph in 6.3 seconds and completed the quarter mile run in 14.8 seconds at 92.6 mph. Those sound like good numbers—and they are—even when we compare them to our 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC300 4Matic long-termer (Motor Trend’s 2017 SUV of the Year), which goes from 0 to 60 mph in 6.9 seconds and completes the quarter mile in 15.2 seconds at 89.6 mph. Our BMW tester was equipped with the Dynamic Handling package, which adds M Sport brakes. The resulting stop from 60 mph took 123 feet. The X3 took 26.9 seconds at an average 0.64 g to complete our figure-eight testing, but testing director Kim Reynolds didn’t find the Bimmer to be as fun as its new, younger sibling. We tested the X3 alongside the X2, and Reynolds said the younger model handles better. “The X3 feels heavy and not overly powerful,” he said. “It has a lot of understeer and brake feel that’s good, but it’s not nearly as communicative as the X2’s. Indeed, the X2 really puts this to shame in terms of handling as well.” However, he found the X3 chassis more solid and body motions “well controlled.”
On the city streets and highway, I found the X3’s ride smooth and comfortable. The power coming out of the 2.0 turbo is not spectacular, but press harder, and you’ll feel the punch. The driving modes available are Eco Pro, Comfort and Sport. The latter holds gears longer and provides, like its name suggests, a more dynamic drive. If you’re looking for more power, however, the BMW X3 M40i might be the model to choose, as it’s equipped with a six-cylinder inline engine that delivers 355 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. The eight-speed tranny feels well mated to the 2.0-liter engine and quickly shifts when it’s supposed to. Paddle shifters help the driver experience a more passionate drive.
After driving our Jaguar F-Pace 35t R-Sport long-termer a couple of days after spending almost a week in the X3, I found that the BMW’s suspension is way less stiff and more confortable to ride. Although our Jag rides on 20-inch wheels and the Bimmer we had rode on 19-inchers, the stiffness of the chassis was more notable on the F-Pace. Editor-in-chief Ed Loh asked me how I liked the ride quality in his long-term vehicle when I first drove it a couple of months ago, and my reaction was the same as now: very rigid. However, that difference was more notable after driving the X3. If there’s one thing that should be improved in the X3, it’s the start/stop system, which makes a lot of noise and vibrations inside the cabin when the engine is turned on or off. The system can be turned off with the push of a button, but we’ve recently seen better systems in mainstream cars, like in Chevys and Fords.
