The all-new BMW X3 is finally here and is expected to be the company's best-selling model. Does it have enough to take on the competition?

2018 BMW X3 review

The new third-generation BMW X3 arrives with an innovative new architecture that makes this one of the top picks in the segment.

2018 BMW X3 review

The 2018 BMW X3 is a proper step up over its predecessor, having more in common with a 5 Series than the X1. Here we look at the petrol and diesel performance leaders, particularly the overdue 4.8sec 0-100km/h M Performance debutant, called M40i.

2018 BMW X3 xDrive30i review: video

The all-new BMW X3 is finally here and is expected to be BMW's best selling model. Does it have enough to take on the competition?

2018 BMW X3 review

See the full article here. The third-generation BMW X3 has a deep-seated connection with Australia that most people won’t realise. It’s bold new look is the handy work of Aussie designer and all-round nice guy Calvin Luk, who also penned the current X1 and 1 Series facelift. Luk is a BMW fanboy from way back – from the very moment his parents bought an E36, and it’s been that way ever since...

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 M40i coming to Australia soon

BMW Australia will finally get its hands on a real rival to the Audi SQ5 and Mercedes-AMG GLC43 performance SUVs from mid-2018, priced to match the pair at around $100,000 and primed to beat them from 0-100km/h. This is because the third-generation BMW X3 range, which launches in 'regular' $68,900 20d, $75,900 30i and $83,900 30d forms in Australia in early November, also comes with a new range-topping M Performance variant called the X3 M40i...

2015 BMW X3 xDrive 28i Review

The all-new and technologically advanced G01 BMW X3 has been released in the US, becoming the German marque’s freshest SUV. Debuting a new design language for future X models – borrowed largely from the new X1 – this X3 marks a step forward from its hugely successful predecessor in terms of technology, luxury and driving dynamics...

2012 BMW X3 xDrive 30d review

I've always wanted a BMW, ever since visiting the BMW outlet in Munich, Germany... it was just a matter of what model. And when. I have always hunkered for an M3 – but the practicalities versus cost equation did not add up. When the F25 X3 model was released, I grabbed a brochure and stuck a few photos on the fridge... this was in 2012...

2016 BMW X3 xDrive 20i Review

We purchased a 2016 BMW X3 in September, after waiting 3 months from ordering the car to delivery. The process of tracking your shipping was equally exciting, and believe me, it was worth the wait. You get a sense of euphoria when you look at the car, whether it's interior or exterior, you can see it's been beautifully crafted...

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...
