2020 BMW X3 xDrive20d review

The entry-level, diesel-powered X3 represents a practical – if a little pedestrian – option for luxury SUV shoppers.

2019 BMW X3 M review

Take one family SUV, transplant in the beating heart of a performance icon, et voila.

2020 BMW X3 M Competition review: 'Outback rally' style

BMW's X3 M Competition promises to blend urban family friendliness with spirited road and track performance. But we threw that out the window and instead went rallying in the Outback.

2019 BMW X3 M review

2020 BMW X3 M review: Not your usual SUV test...

For something unique, BMW took Australian media to the outback for an unorthodox approach to testing an SUV: Rally driving. Get your own rhythm and timing right, and the X3 M will scythe through a twisty rally course, throttle pinned, all 375kW relentlessly on tap – mid-era ’80s Group B rally monster power – with all four wheels constantly rotating faster than the ground beneath them...

2019 BMW X3 M review: Hero SUVs driven!

Finally, at last, BMW's powerhouse X5 M and X6 M monsters have been joined by the new and slightly more accessible mid-sized X3 M and X4 M. Are they up to the standard set by models like the Mercedes-AMG GLC63 twins, or the Jaguar F-Pace SVR and Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio? Alborz Fallah finds out.

2018 BMW X3 sDrive20i review

Does the lack of output and trinkets rob BMW's entry point into the X3 range, the sDrive20i, from a properly premium experience? We live with it for a week to find out. Lust after German premium badge cachet, need mid-sized SUV practicality, and would rather dance on broken glass than drive a ‘diseasal’? Then BMW’s newest petrol-powered middleweight family hauler, the X3 sDrive20i, is out to seduce you...

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?

2020 BMW X3M Competition v Porsche Macan Turbo: Performance comparison review

The Macan Turbo and X3 M may wear practical SUV bodies, but are infused with the sports car DNA that made legends of the Porsche and BMW brands. So, which is the most worthy of the performance badges they wear?

2019 Porsche Macan S v BMW X3 M40i comparison

Porsche's facelifted Macan S brings a freshened look, performance bump and infotainment lift. But can it beat out the mainstay BMW X3 M40i for blending practicality and sportiness?

2018 BMW X3 xDrive30i v Volvo XC60 T6 R Design comparison

You’ve got about $80,000 to spend on a mid-sized luxury SUV, but is it best to go the traditional German route or take the alternative Swedish path?

2014 BMW X3 xDrive20d review

I was looking for an SUV that was economical as we drive every weekend to our beach house in Blairgowrie, Victoria. I was working for a media buying company that handled BMW and I could access vehicles off their Press and Executive fleet. As it turned out our vehicle had also been used by Drive and a couple other publications. My budget was $65k and the X3 was my choice...

2018 BMW X3 xDrive30d M Sport review

I have driven my X3 30D for over two years and 35000km now and I have been very happy with the ownership experience. I bought this model due to the quality, space of the cabin, and value for money considering the features and superb driving traits. The power and economy of the 6-cylinder, 3.0-litre, 195kW/620Nm diesel is simply outstanding...

2017 BMW X3 xDrive 20d M-sport review

1969 was a fantastic year. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin stepped foot on the moon, the Concord flew to Australia, Richard Nixon, aka Tricky Dicky, was preparing to be scandalous and – more importantly to the six-year-old me – Skippy the Bush Kangaroo appeared in Canberra. People lined the streets to catch a glimpse of the marsupial superstar...

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...
