Auckland to beyond Coromandel road trip: Driving the 2016 BMW X3

If you've ever been to New Zealand, you're likely aware that it is one of the most naturally beautiful places on the planet. A lot of that glory goes to the South Island, with its mystical mountains and voluminous valleys, its crystal blue lakes and snow-covered ski fields – it really is a terrific travel destination. But the North Island deserves some love, too...

2015 BMW X3 28i M Sport Speed Date

I enlisted the help of a friend, David, to pass on some thoughts about the X3 as we hung out over the course of a weekend. D: I got the car just before the wife and kids returned from a 3 week trip to the UK, so had it all to myself. We initially hit the Golf Club for a cheeky 18 holes, and then caught up with friends over dinner...

Mercedes-Benz GLC v BMW X3 : Comparison Review

Mercedes-Benz has not made all that many missteps over the past decade of vehicle development, especially when you consider its remarkable product resurgence and subsequent sales explosion. But the one decision it came to rue was not producing a car called the GLK in right-hand drive, and thereby allowing its German rivals to dominate sales in the compact luxury compact SUV market — one of the fastest-growing segments of all...

BMW X3 xDrive28i v Lexus NX200t Sports Luxury – prestige SUV comparison test

“Should I buy a sporty SUV? Or one that’s focused more on luxury?” Great hypothetical question, invisible questioner! We’ve assembled two prestige SUVs that appear to be trying to offer you two cars in one – sporty, and luxurious. Our two competitors are the BMW X3 xDrive28i and the Lexus NX200t Sports Luxury...

Luxury SUV Comparison: Audi Q5 v BMW X3 v Lexus NX v Volvo XC60

Considering luxury SUVs are big business, the Lexus NX can’t be accused of being rushed to market. It’s more than a decade since Toyota’s luxury division introduced its last new SUV, the GX that is a spruced-up Prado and never sold in Australia. You then have to go back into the 1990s for the (LandCruiser-based) LX and (Highlander-based) RX...

BMW X3 Owner Reviews

2013 BMW X3 xDrive 20d Review

We bought the X3 as our first luxury car on my recommendation and believe me we have been enjoying it ever since. The 2 litre diesel barely leaves a person wanting for more especially when it's their first luxury car. The comfort is extremely good. My dad also test drove the X5 but apart from the 3 litre engine, he didn't find anything special like he did with X3...
