The 2018 BMW X3 Offers All the Luxury and Performance You Crave from an SUV

The BMW X3 has been fully redesigned for 2018, with a shark nose, wider kidney grilles and well-defined body creases, but the biggest changes are in the cabin. Tri-zone automatic climate control and a touch-screen infotainment system are now standard, with a touch pad, a rotary controller, voice commands and steering wheel controls available. You can also add gesture controls to increase the infotainment system’s functionality. The 2018 BMW X3 has the best rearview camera in its class, with an available full 360-degree view around the car. The available heads-up display is the clearest and best in the business, showing full top-down views of intersections and full-color depictions of highway off ramps. Other available features include front ventilated seats, soft and adjustable interior lighting, a wireless charging pad for your cell phone and a navigation system that can quickly parse full line addresses.

Like most BMWs, the 2018 X3 is still fun to drive, with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers more horsepower (248 versus 240 horsepower in the base 2017 X3). It accelerates without any perceptible lag, shake, or drama and the suspension is adept at handling washboard surfaces and tight corners. All-wheel drive is now standard, and the base engine has a bit more horsepower. With its base 2.0-liter engine, the BMW X3 gets an efficient 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway. The X3 is adept at handling both smooth highways and twisty back roads. Its steering provides reliable feedback, and the suspension maintains a comfortable ride over most any surface. It also delivers a quiet ride so that you can better hear the 12-speaker audio system. The 2018 BMW X3 is a truly luxurious SUV, and you can find it in stock at BMW of Columbus.
