The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 BMW X3 beats other luxury crossovers in handling and gutsy performance, but it's still less satisfying than BMW's own 3-Series wagon. The 2010 Volvo XC60 brings unexpected style and a heavy dose of safety technology to families with all-weather needs.
