What Is the 2020 BMW X3?
The BMW X3 is a five-seat compact luxury SUV. It’s offered with rear- or all-wheel drive, and power comes from a standard 248-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine or an available 382-hp, turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six. Both engines work with an eight-speed automatic transmission. X3 competitors include the Volvo XC60, Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class and Audi Q5.
What’s New on the 2020 BMW X3?
LED headlights with cornering lights, navigation and a digital instrument cluster are now standard. A new high-performance X3 M also joins the lineup.
What Features in the 2020 BMW X3 Are Most Important?
Standard active safety features include forward collision warning with daytime pedestrian detection and low-speed automatic emergency braking. Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity makes using iPhone apps easier and safer. Options include a heated steering wheel, heated front seats, a panoramic moonroof, wireless device charging, a Wi-Fi hot spot, a Harman Kardon premium stereo, a head-up display and a 360-degree camera system.
Should I Buy the 2020 BMW X3?
The BMW X3 rides well and has a refined base four-cylinder engine, but it suffers from numb steering and modest cargo room. The 2020 X3’s new standard features are welcome, but if you’re considering an X3, we’d recommend taking a look at BMW’s less expensive X1, too.
