(2005 model shown)


The X3 "Sports Activity Vehicle" is a crossover SUV that's based on the 3-Series sedan. A 184-horsepower 2.5-liter in-line six-cylinder engine powers the base 2.5i version, while a 225-horsepower, 3.0-liter version comes with the 3.0i. Either engine can be mated to either a six-speed-manual transmission or an optional five-speed Steptronic automatic gearbox. BMW's xDrive "intelligent" all-wheel-drive system permits infinitely adjustable front-to-rear torque distribution for surefootedness on wet or snowy pavement. The X3 is capable of towing 3500 pounds of payload. An optional Sport Package adds a tauter suspension and 18-inch wheels and tires for added handling prowess, and includes power sport seats with driver's side memory functions, and a sport steering wheel. An iPod Adapter that creates a seamless integration between Apple's popular iPod MP3 player and the vehicle's audio system is available.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
