2017 BMW X3 continues to serve its lovers with its new version, which is one of the best compact luxury SUVs on the market. It is a four-door compact luxury SUV. The current model is just two years removed from a facelift that helped the SUV age more gracefully and keeps it among the leaders in its segment.
The car strikes the right chord for many luxury SUV shoppers. It’s a strong combination of style, practicality, and powertrain options combined with loads of available technology in a fun-to-drive package. It keeps the same proportions as when it first arrived in the U.S. Although it isn’t as bold as the X4 but still it is above average. It delivers its promise of being a tall wagon for families who need more capability, space and comfort than a sedan. The car faces serious competition with cars like Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, Audi Q5, Lincoln MKC, Lexus NX, and Acura RDX.

Outside, the car receives two circular headlights with optional LED lamps, a more pronounced version of BMW’s kidney grille, and minor front tweaks. This brings the X3 more in line with BMW’s sedans, rather than its SUVs. These changes serve to keep the X3 updated with some of the sporty details from the rest of the BMW lineup. It has a graceful belt-line crease and a nicely tapered nose which isn’t too high. There are blunt lines next to the hood that actually serves to lower the belt line visually. LED-lit taillights are shaped like those on a 5-Series or 3-Series sedan.
Overall, X3 is manufactured with more attention to detail and attention to surfacing than before, without a lot of excess styling pieces. Two lines are available as options on the X3: xLine and M Sport. The xLine adds tasteful touches of brightwork to the windows and grille whereas the M Sports package adds a more aggressive front fascia and high gloss black above the window line.
