Comfort & Quality

Experts at TheCarConnection.com love the comfort and quality inherent in a 2009 BMW X3. Even picky drivers should be pleased.

Reviewers are mixed on the front seats of the 2009 BMW X3. ConsumerGuide reports that the "seats lack sufficient padding" and the telescoping steering wheel "may not offer enough reach." Edmunds finds comfort and support in the "firm, well-shaped seats". ConsumerGuide finds "good legroom and ample headroom."

The 2009 BMW X3 is comfortable—if you’re sitting in front—and materials and build quality are up for debate.

The rear seats of the 2009 X3 get fewer good reviews. MSN Autos finds room for five is cramped because "X3 is a little narrow."

Cargo and storage space are generally quite good. Edmunds finds "plenty of storage cubbies," and "71 cubic feet of cargo space" in fold-down rear-seat mode.

Reviewers are also divided on the materials and build quality of the 2009 BMW X3. MyRide.com calls the cup holders "an afterthought." ConsumerGuide feels some interior trim bits aren't "as rich as they should be." Edmunds thinks the cockpit is "well thought out."

ConsumerGuide likes the engine's "classy growl." Wind noise is a concern for MyRide.com.
