BMW X3 xDrive35i: 19/26 mpg
EPA




Change has come to the X3 lineup for 2013--with a turbocharged four-cylinder replacing the outgoing normally-aspirated six in the X3 xDrive28i.

The new xDrive28i is rated by the EPA at an impressive 21 mpg city, 28 highway, while the 300-hp xDrive35i earns 19/26-mpg ratings. Both versions get the benefit of an eight-speed automatic.

U.S. versions now also get the Auto Start-Stop system, which wisely stops the engine at stoplights, with your foot on the brake, then restarts the engine when you start to lift off the brake pedal. Unfortunately in the X3, with the four-cylinder engine, it's a little rough in the way that it shuts the engine off. 

Conclusion

The X3 xDrive28i gets much-improved gas mileage--thanks to a new turbo four-cylinder engine.

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.
