The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 BMW X3 is a more rugged alternative to a sport wagon—but it’s not nearly as much fun to drive. The 2008 Land Rover LR2 splices the ruggedly stylish look that draws people to the legendary British brand with honest practicality, without the gas-guzzling and clumsy handling.
