The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 BMW X3 continues its run as one of the best compact luxury SUVs on the market—even in the face of much newer competition. Although it's not a working implement like the classic Land Rover Discovery, the quirky Discovery Sport has plenty of merits up against rivals in the entry-level luxury class.
