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

The X3 M will be the best selling BMW M car in Australia, but does it deserve to be?

2019 BMW X3 M40i review

The 2019 BMW X3 M40i gets its gym gear on and starts stretching, giving buyers a warm-up in preparation for a badder X3 M later this year. Unlike a gym selfie however, the X3 M40i packs in some genuine ability.

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

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?

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...

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...
