Fuel Type

When BMW put the Sport into Sport Utility Vehicle with the X5 in 1998, it was only a matter of time before it repeated the trick one segment down, and sure enough the X3 followed in 2003. Now in its third-generation (since 2018), the X3 is every bit the mini-me X5, being fun to drive, stylishly designed and more than capable enough off-road for the vast majority of buyers, even if its suspension is very much focussed on road driving. Because the X3 is based on 3-series underpinnings it means there is still plenty of space inside, and running costs can be really quite affordable, especially for the four-cylinder models.

BMW X3 Engines

The BMW X3 is available with a range of petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid engines. Most are badged xDrive (BMW’s all-wheel drive technology), though rear-wheel drive sDrive models are available on some four-cylinder variants. All models are equipped with an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

The petrol range starts with the four-cylinder 2.0-litre engine in both 20i and 30i spec, then steps up to the M40i model, which is fitted with BMW’s exceptional 3.0-litre straight-six turbocharged engine. Top of the three is the X3 M, again with a 3.0-litre engine, but this time it’s shared with the BMW M3. The result is incredible performance with sure-footed handling. The plug-in hybrid 30e combines a four-cylinder petrol engine with an electric motor – you can enjoy up to 34 miles of zero-emissions motoring with the ease of quickly filling up with petrol for longer trips.

The 2.0-litre four-cylinder 18d and 20d are the junior diesel models and offer a great blend of performance and fuel economy, but moving up to the 30d brings BMW’s silky straight-six diesel engine with far more muscular performance and still attractive running costs – no wonder it’s such a popular choice. Harder to find but even more desirable is the M40d, the ultimate diesel and arguably the ultimate all-round X3.


The third-generation 2018-onwards BMW X3 is available as a five-door, five-seat mid-sized SUV. At 4.7 metres long, it’s a similar size to the BMW 3-series with which it shares its underpinnings. That’s much the same as the previous generation, but the wheelbase is 5cm longer, unlocking extra interior space.

Trim Levels

The 2018-on BMW X3 launched with three trim levels: SE, xLine and M Sport.

SE features Vernasca leather, high-gloss interior trim, Business Navigation and Park Assist, while xLine adds more upmarket touches, including aluminium satin roof rails and sports seats in Vernasca leather. The incredibly popular M Sport spec gets a bespoke leather steering wheel, sports seats and Professional Navigation. More recently, the range has been slimmed down to simply xLine and M Sport.


All X3s are equipped with Business Navigation and Park Assist as standard, bringing sat-nav, front and rear parking sensors and a reversing camera. Upgrading to M Sport adds the uprated BMW Professional Navigation system with its 10.25-inch widescreen display – it can be controlled using the traditional rotary controller next to the gearstick, via the touchscreen or with voice control.

The BMW Display Key is optional – it features a digital read out that lets you check on fuel level, maintenance work due and if the doors, windows and sunroof are closed.
