BMW X3 Los Angeles Rental
New compact luxury crossovers are being introduced apace, with strong-selling models like the Lexus NX and the Lincoln MKC claiming large slices of a pie once carved up almost exclusively by Acura, BMW, Mercedes, and Audi. But there’s still goodness to be found among the older guard, particularly BMW’s X3.
Introduced in 2003 as one of the first of its breed, the BMW X3 entered its second generation for 2011 and was updated for 2015 with revised styling, the addition of diesel and rear-drive models, and some new convenience features. So far the only refreshed model we’ve tested was—ahem—the xDrive28d diesel, but we’ve reviewed this generation plenty. The turbocharged gasoline four-cylinder model won a comparison test against the Audi Q5 and the Range Rover Evoque, and we’ve also spent quality time with the four-cylinder xDrive28i and the pre-update xDrive35i.
LET YOUR INSTINCTS LEAD YOU. The BMW X3 delivers it all: an agile, yet rugged design, unparalleled performance, intelligent innovations, and the versatility of a Sports Activity Vehicle®. Every element works together to make it the perfect travel companion for wherever you go—whether it’s running errands around town or tackling snowy roads.
