BMW X3 2010

The new BMW X3 of 2010 has similar features to the old model. BMW X3 has been in competition with other car companies like the Audi Q5, Volvo XC60, and Infiniti EX35. The trim level of the SUV is a single xDrive30i. The SUV is a typical all wheel drive with a horsepower of 260 and a 3 litres six cylinder engine. Consumers have the option to opt for a six speed manual or automatic transmission. Its capacity to tow can reach for up to 3500 lbs. The vehicle also secures the safety of the passengers with its features such as an antilock braking system (it prevents the wheels from being locked during heavy brakes), traction control, stability control, airbags built in the front- rear portion, and a tubular airbag that protects the head. It ensures that front and side collisions are managed preventing serious injury. If you want to add a sporty touch to your SUV, then a package is available which covers a sports suspension and an 18 inch wheel. Other packages of the BMW include a leather upholstery, sunroof, warmer in the front seats and rear side, navigation system, and a steering wheel that can be heated to add extra comfort to the driver.

The acceleration of the BMW X3 is powerful with a mph of 7.9 seconds. Driving smooth in the road can sometimes be hindered due to the nonlinear control response and the irregular changes of gear.

The SUV is not a fuel saver. The automatic transmission of the X3 has a mpg of 19.5 to 20.1 when driven in the highway. Premium fuel is required for the X3. The condition of the ride is sporty because of the base suspension.

The handling, steering, and brakes of the X3 are controllable and comfortable. A slight problem is only encountered when driving at low speed because the driver will exert too much effort in handling.  The X3 doesn’t produce too much noise when driven. Engine rumble is only heard during acceleration.

The audio, navigation, and climate control are positioned perfectly so that passengers could easily detect it. The interior condition of the X3 is furnished well. The upholstery is vinyl but leather can be replaced if you opt for one. Extra charges will be applied. The inside of the vehicle is spacious although the seats are positioned a bit low uncomfortable for adults. The cargo space of the vehicle is abundant.

BMW X3 is quite expensive for a retail price of $38, 750. This luxurious SUV is perfect for people with that sporty personality.
