First on sale in 2003, the BMW X3 was the entry point to BMW's SUV range until the smaller X1 was launched.

Positioned between the X1 and X5 the X3 is designed to combine practicality inside the cabin with the sportiness that BMW is known for.

Available in both rear- and all-wheel drive, the X3 is offered with a mix of diesel and petrol engines.

The range even includes a super-hot BMW X3 M Competition model, which shares parts with the BMW M4.

The BMW X3 competes with cars like the Mercedes-Benz GLC, the Audi Q5, and the Lexus NX.
