2021 BMW X3 Interior Review


Interior: 8.1

The interior of the 2021 BMW X3 impresses on most accounts. Seating space and cargo room are among the best in the class. The infotainment system is user-friendly, and there are many standard features. Critics point to the reserved interior styling as the only potential drawback.

  • "The interior quality and construction are top-notch, even if the design isn’t as overtly stylish or daring as some of its rivals." -- Autotrader
  • "Though the interior lacks the aesthetic appeal of some competitors, the quality is evident. Gaps are tight and uniform, and the switches and controls feel solid." -- Edmunds (2020)
  • "It leans more toward the minimalistic end, but there’s built-in premium feel to its simplicity." -- Kelley Blue Book (2020)


The BMW X3 has 28.7 cubic feet of cargo space behind its rear seats and 62.7 cubic feet with these seats folded. That’s more cargo room than most other luxury compact SUVs offer. A power liftgate comes standard. A hands-free power liftgate is available.

  • "The cargo area also enjoys a relatively square and functional space. Its maximum cargo volume of 62.7 cubic feet is among the segment’s best — as is its 28.7 cubic feet of space with the rear seats in place." -- Autotrader
  • "Generous cargo space and plentiful interior storage options make the X3 a versatile SUV. There's a healthy 28.7 cubic feet behind the second row, which can easily be lowered from release handles in the rear, revealing 62.7 cubic feet of space." -- Edmunds (2020)
  • "Like most compact luxury SUVs, the well-finished cargo area is spacious enough for a family of four to take a weeklong road trip. Fold the second-row seats flat and there's plenty of space to swallow the goods from a big-box store." -- Consumer Reports (2018)


The BMW X3 has five seats, and it comes standard with synthetic leather upholstery and power-adjustable front seats. Genuine leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and a heated steering wheel are available.

The front seats are comfortable, and they provide sufficient headroom and legroom, even for taller drivers and passengers. The rear seats can accommodate two adults comfortably too.

For installing child safety seats, there are two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the rear outboard seats and a tether anchor for the rear middle seat.

  • "The X3's cabin offers generous rear passenger space as well as reclining rear seats. The lower cushions are set at a comfortable distance from the floor." -- Autotrader (2020)
  • "The X3 is extraordinarily roomy inside, even for its compact class. The driver and front passenger have plenty of space, and most rear-seat passengers will find good legroom. Headroom is similarly plentiful." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)
  • "The rear seat is roomy enough for two adults, though three can fit in a pinch. Young children won't have any problem scrambling up into the cabin, and those in booster seats will be able to reach and access the seat-belt receptacles and secure themselves." -- Consumer Reports (2018)

Interior Features

The BMW X3’s standard features include a 10.2-inch touch screen, a navigation system, Apple CarPlay, a Wi-Fi hot spot, 12 speakers, HD Radio, satellite radio, Bluetooth, and two USB ports.

The X3’s wide touch screen has a simple menu structure, quick responses, and additional buttons and knobs that make this system easy to use when driving.

Other standard features include remote keyless entry, push-button start, tri-zone automatic climate control, parking sensors, a rearview camera, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, and lane departure warning.

Available features include Android Auto, a digital gauge cluster, a gesture control system, wireless device charging, a 16-speaker Harman Kardon stereo, proximity keyless entry, rear sunshades, a panoramic moonroof, a head-up display, adaptive pivoting headlights, parallel park assist, a surround-view parking camera system, lane keep assist, and adaptive cruise control.

  • "The relationship between the driver and the controls and switchgear is harmonious and well-considered, especially with regard to BMW’s latest iDrive infotainment system." -- Autotrader
  • "Controls for common functions like audio and climate are logical and easy to reach, but the iDrive circular controller for screen functions and even the pistol-like gearshift are best first studied at a standstill." -- Kelley Blue Book (2020)
  • "BMW's latest entertainment interface looks pretty and reacts quickly to commands. It's powerful, too, which means there's a depth to the features that can take some time to figure out. The combination of a touchscreen and rotary dial with a touch-sensitive top makes for easy operation." -- Edmunds (2019)
