The 2011 BMW X3 will likely have respectable mileage ratings for its class—though on an absolute family-car scale, nothing to wow.

U.S. EPA





At 17 mpg city, 24 highway, last year's X3 model was far from a segment leader. Yet the introduction of the new eight-speed—two more than last year—automatic transmission allows a wider span of gears and an even taller highway cruising ratio. That, and the new-generation engines, should aid fuel economy, so we expect 2011 ratings to be no lower, possibly a mile per gallon higher. And don't expect the more powerful xDrive35i to be any worse on fuel; in BMW's other vehicles it's proven to be just as fuel-efficient, if not better, than the non-turbo six.

BMW won't yet be bringing its engine start/stop system, which is offered in other markets and saves fuel at stoplights, to the U.S., however.

Conclusion

The 2011 BMW X3 will likely have respectable mileage ratings for its class—though on an absolute family-car scale, nothing to wow.

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.
