The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 BMW X4 grasps for attention, while it drops the cargo-carrying, off-roading SUV pretense. 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.
