New Generation BMW X3 Revealed

BMW took the wraps off the all-new 2011 X3 SUV, or as they say Sports Activity Vehicle, and we are in a bit of a shock really because we thought they would correct fault’s of the old X3’s design in the new one, but …

Not only it’s not better, we’re afraid to report it’s even worse. Specially that awful front-end with those ugly headlights. They seem to be designed by someone who couldn’t care less about it!

So designwise the new X3 won’t win any prize from those of us blessed with the gift of sight. But mechanically, since it’s a BMW, it’s brilliant.

Well, brilliant on the road at least. The car’s built on a sedan platform and it comes with a new fancy suspension system featuring advanced electronic controls. So it will drive well on asphalt, but on rough surfaces, it’s not exactly a Range Rover, if you what I mean!
