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.

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 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...

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?

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...

2019 BMW X3 M and X4 M outed

BMW’s M GmbH division has announced - to nobody’s surprise - the imminent reveal of the first X3 M and X4 M hotted-up crossovers. The hi-po pair will be shown in prototype forms at this weekend’s DTM race at the Nürburgring, ahead of what is expected to be a reveal at the Paris motor show this October.

2020 BMW iX3 spied

Photographers have captured images of the upcoming BMW iX3 undergoing testing in Europe, giving us a closer look at the company's first all-electric SUV. Looking very much like the Concept iX3 that previewed it in April – as is the BMW norm these days – the iX3 prototype seen here appears to borrow much of its sheetmetal from the standard X3, albeit with minor modifications...

2018 BMW X3, X4 recalled

BMW Australia has issued a recall for the 2018 model-year X3 and X4 crossovers over concerns of a fault with the braking system. The manufacturer reports that "there is a possibility of air being trapped in the hydraulic braking system", which can cause the rear brake circuit to fail, or in "extreme circumstances" the brake pedal may "travel to the floor"...

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...

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...
