The BMW X3 is no average SUV, here’s why

Charlie Cooksey drives the BMW X3.

The BMW X3 might look pretty much identical to the previous model it replaces, but it’s packed with lots of improved technology that make it easier and more relaxing to drive. It’s also a lot sportier than the average SUV.

It’s lighter, more efficient, and drives beautifully as you’d expect from a BMW. This roomy family car is quiet and comfortable thanks to its suspension that expertly irons out the bumps that can be found in many Bahrain roads.

There’s generous space in the front for both the driver and the passenger, and enough room in the back for three adults. There’s also lots of boot space.

The BMW X3 is actually bigger than the original BMW X5. That said, I was surprised just how easy this car is to park in tight spaces thanks to excellent visibility and technology.

Interior design is stylish, with funky controls and choices of cool ambient lighting. The quality of materials used by BMW for the interior are first class. Almost every piece of trim on the dashboard and center console feels soft to the touch.

There’s a 248-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine, an eight-speed automatic transmission, and rear-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is available, as are other power options including a hardcore performance version called the X3 M Competition that offers a massive 503 horsepower.

The Premium Package that I drove came with electric seat adjustment and a huge panoramic glass roof that made the already roomy cabin feel even more spacious.
