2017 BMW X3: A Lot to Love About This Luxury Compact Crossover

It's a fact that few segments in the automotive industry are as hotly contested as the luxury compact crossover class. There are worthy competitors from many different manufacturers, but none comes close to offering the value of the 2017 BMW X3.

While the last complete redesign of the X3 was some time ago, BMW has kept the model fresh, stylish, and packed with all the latest tech features. Just two years ago the automaker also performed a relatively extensive refresh on the compact crossover, which included a restyle on the inside and the outside.

For 2017, you've got four different trim levels to choose from in the X3 lineup:

  • sDrive28i
  • xDrive28i
  • xDrive28d
  • xDrive35i

These trims are highlighted by a veritable plethora of luxury and comfort features (even on the base trims) and all are obviously backed by high-performing yet fuel-efficient engine options. If there's ever been a minor complaint when it comes to the X3 it could be that the infotainment system inside the crossover seemed more complicated than it could have been. The good news here is that for the 2017 model year, BMW made changes to the iDrive infotainment system to improve its functionality and features.
