The BMW X3 has just been given a mid-life refresh and the revised model gets a quieter cabin, extra equipment and improved fuel economy.
As with the competition, the BMW X3 is a road-biased SUV rather than an out-and-out off-roader, although it can be had with four-wheel drive. Behind the considerably more expensive Porsche Macan, the BMW is probably the most fun-to-drive SUV on the market and it comes with an excellent range of engines. The model's 2.0-litre diesel has just got more power, is quieter, and gives a superb balance between economy and performance.
The BMW X3 can now be specced in xLine trim, which joins the existing line-up of SE and M Sport models.
