BMW X3 SUV (2017 - )

The X3 sits in the middle of the incredibly competitive mid-size SUV sector and BMW has gone all-out to make it a true premium player. As such it’s packed with the latest technology, spacious, luxurious and available with a wide range of engines, going from economical diesels to high-performance six-cylinder petrols. There’s now a full plug-in hybrid too with a range of over 30 miles on electric power alone.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

As you’d expect, there’s very little to separate the main contenders in this fiercely competitive sector. Take the most popular X3 – the 20d – as your example, and you’ll find that fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are virtually identical to those of the equivalent versions of the Audi Q5 and
Mercedes-Benz GLC and only a shade better than those of the Jaguar F-Pace. There’s very little to separate the rivals on price, either, and because they’re all highly desirable cars with a prestige image, they’ll all hold onto their value with similar stubbornness.

The new plug-in hybrid xDrive30e version meanwhile delivers sub-50g/km CO2 and a pure electric range of over 30 miles, with significant tax advantages for company drivers alongside excellent economy, assuming you drive it with that in mind.
