The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
A great-looking crossover with its most carlike performance yet, the BMW X3 also has more interior room and better materials than before. More street-friendly than other Land Rover utes, the 2012 LR2 has some of the SUV hallmarks in a much more city-friendly size.
