The BMW X3 is a hugely capable 4x4 - whether on-road or off it - with powerful, efficient engines and lots of space
We blast-off in the flagship version of BMW's compact SUV
The X5 finally has a baby brother to be proud of as junior SUV arrives in Britain
Baby off-roader gets an all-new design to help stave off fresh competition. We drove a prototype model to see how it fares.
Boasting excellent on-tarmac dynamics, a practical interior, decent mud-plugging ability and strong performance, BMW's X3 impresses. But it's expensive, some plastics are cheap and the ride is firm.
A facelifted X3 keeps BMW's SUV up-to-date against the opposition
The concept is simple - take all the refinement and luxury of the X5 and shrink it into a smaller SUV package. BMW's X3 is the only real compact executive 4x4 on the market, but it has always been compromised.<br/>
Not so long ago, the concept of a BMW off-roader would have been laughed off as fanciful. BMWs were sports saloons, and that was the end of it.
They're having some sleepless nights at Land Rover. BMW's big X5 set new standards for on-road dynamics in the four-wheel-drive market.
