The 2019 BMW X3 is an excellent, if somewhat pricey, choice for a luxury crossover SUV, with a broad selection of engines and wide ranging talents. BMW manages to keep just the right stride in the crossover market, offering a strong combination of style, practicality, and safety, with loads of technology options, a responsive driving experience, and fuel efficiency that’s surprisingly good. For families and all their daily needs, it’s a great pick.
2019 BMW X3 Exterior and Interior Design
This is a design that has grown on us over the past few years. With last year’s revisions to the headlights and taillights, the BMW X3 looks closer to the BMW 3 Series sedan than a midsize SUV. This is a good thing, as it helps make the X3 one of the best-looking cars in its class. The brushed aluminum of the xLine makes the exterior look more luxurious, or you can give the X3 a more aggressive look with the M Sports bigger wheels and aerodynamic package.
This second-generation X3 was launched as a 2016 model and updated for 2019. Test drivers rave about the 2019 BMW X3’s incredibly roomy, comfortable seats and add that there’s lots of rear-seat legroom, making it a great luxury compact SUV for families. They add that its cabin is well laid out and quiet. The X3 comes with BMW’s iDrive infotainment system, satellite radio and BMW Assist eCall, which can automatically notify first responders after a collision. The 2019 BMW X3 is available with a new Harman Kardon surround sound system and updated USB and Bluetooth.
2019 BMW X3 Release Date and Price
We know that the BMW X3 will hit dealerships in autumn next year, but we don’t have specific release details just yet. It’s way too early to talk about prices, but the fact that the X3 M will be the most expensive version of the X3 range is already a fact.
2019 BMW X3 Engine Specs and Performance
The X3 combines the utility of a crossover with the sophistication and driving fun of one of favorite sedans, the legendary 3 Series. Every engine is turbocharged, including the new, strong and eager 3.0 liter 6 cylinder, with 425 horsepower and 406 pound feet of torque. An eight speed automatic is standard, all but the base rear drive X3 have xDrive. BMW says its time from zero to 60 is 6.5 seconds, but it feels faster. The options list is long, but in our opinion, the Dynamic Handling package is one you must consider in 2019 BMW X3.
