BMW's X3 Series has long been recognized as one of the most refined offerings that Bavarian Motor Works has ever unveiled, and the newest 3 Series, now available in Williamsport, PA at Fairfield BMW, more than lives up to the high level of expectations set by its predecessors.
The 2015 BMW X3's driving ability often makes it feel more like one of the luxury company's sport sedans than a sensible and sturdy Sport Utility Vehicle. With new grille and headlights, paired with the already impressive soft exterior lines, the X3 is certainly equally as good-looking as any of BMW's sedans. The spacious interior is handsome with a firm walnut trim. Features in the cabin include automatic climate control, 8-way adjustable front seats, and a booming 205-watt, 12 speaker audio system with AM/FM/CD player, HD radio, and auxiliary input.
The xDrive28i level includes all-wheel drive with essentially the same plush interior features, while the xDrive28d furthers these features with an all new this year diesel option that enhances the vehicle's fuel economy. The top-tier xDrive35i model has a 6-cylinder engine, panoramic moon roof, and xenon headlights. A power tailgate is included with all X3 trim levels, as well as BMW's outstanding 4 year/50,000 mile complimentary maintenance service.
In the lower priced entry-level real-wheel drive X3 or the all wheel drive xDrive28i the engine is a turbocharged 4 cylinder cranking out a strong 240 horsepower. The higher tier xDrive35i holds a 300 horsepower turbocharged V6 engine, and the diesel engine in the xDrive28d is 2.0 liters. All engines in all trims pair with the smart 8-speed automatic transmission and automatic engine start/stop, which shuts down the engine when it is stopped and restarts the engine when brake pedal pressure is removed.
