2 of 11

Why the 2017 BMW X3 Scores Well on Our Site

Based on the excellent and popular BMW 3 Series sedan, the X3 is the middle child among BMW's utilitarian SUVs. It seats five, with generous rear leg- and headroom, and its tall, square cargo area offers maximum flexibility.

The X3 is neither as thrilling to drive as the Jaguar F-Pace, nor as plush as the Mercedes-Benz GLC, but it strikes a nearly ideal balance between being rewarding to drive and comfortable to ride in.

Buying an X3 to carry your family also comes with the assurance of top safety scores and good reliability. The X3’s excellent safety scores, good reliability score, and superior performance contributed to its high U.S. News overall score, while its passenger and cargo space, as well as its many available family-friendly features, make it the Best Luxury Compact SUV for Families.
