The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The stylish 2016 BMW X3 skips the ruggedness thing entirely and instead succeeds in being one of the sportiest and tech-loaded yet fuel-efficient compact crossovers. The 2016 BMW X4 grasps for attention, while it drops the cargo-carrying, off-roading SUV pretense.
