2018 BMW X3 Review

With agile handling, a roomy cabin, and premium features, the BMW X3 is a great SUV for trips around Annapolis, Highland Beach, and Hillsmere Shores. Before you can decide if it’s right for you, you’ll need to learn more about it first.

That’s why our team at BMW of Annapolis created this 2018 BMW X3 review. Discover the characteristics of this luxury compact SUV, and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Strong Engine Lineup

The 2018 BMW X3 offers two engine options that deliver plenty of power…

  • 2.0L TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder: 248 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.0L TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder: 355 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque

While the vehicle is quite athletic, it handles like a charm and doesn’t sacrifice on ride comfort.  Plus, with an EPA-estimated 23 city/30 highway MPG, you can spend more time enjoying the drive and less time stopping to refuel.

Additionally, the X3 comes standard with the xDrive Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system. It’ll constantly monitor road conditions and send power to the wheel with the surest footing to improve traction and prevent wheel-slip from occurring.

With this kind of advanced BMW engineering at work, you’ll feel a lot more confident behind the wheel.

Spacious Cabin & Cargo Area

The BMW X3 will also make sure that everyone on board is nice and comfortable. With 40.3 inches of front legroom, 36.4 inches of rear legroom, and 101.4 cubic feet of passenger volume, five people can comfortably stretch out and avoid bumping elbows with their neighbor.

There’s also plenty of room to accommodate everything you need for your next adventure. When the rear seats are folded down, you’ll get 62.7 cubic feet of cargo space to work with. Plus, the rear seats are 40/20/40 split. Due to this, you could fold down the center seat to fit long items without sacrificing two seating positions.

Furthermore, a power rear liftgate comes standard. This lets you open the liftgate with just your key fob, making it easier to load your personal belongings into the SUV.

Premium Interior

When sitting inside the 2018 X3, you’ll notice its refinement right away. From the high-quality leather and heated seats to the dark oak wood trim, the luxury features will give you a pleasant ride.

Not only are heated front seats available, but ventilated front seats and a heating steering wheel are optional, as well. As a result, you’ll have all-day comfort, no matter the time of year.

While you’re feeling nice and relaxed, you can utilize the iDrive 6.0 infotainment system to get a dose of entertainment. The touchscreen makes it easy to navigate through the different media options. Bluetooth® technology will allow you to stream music or make phone calls while keeping your hands on the steering wheel and your eyes on the road. Also, your music and phone conversations will be heard crystal-clear through the standard 12-speaker audio system.

With the available Wi-Fi hotspot, they can stay connected to the internet without eating up their data. Plus, the available wireless charging pad means you can leave your phone cord at home and still always have a full battery.While you’re driving, everyone else will most likely be on their mobile devices.
