Expert Review

By Kelley Blue Book Editorial Staff

Editor's Overview

The 2019 BMW X3 is one of the coolest kids in one of the coolest classes: the compact-luxury-SUV segment, where it competes with rivals like the Mercedes-Benz GLC and Audi Q5. The X3 remains a standout thanks to agile handling, slick technology and German badge appeal. A new rear-drive model makes cost of entry slightly easier for 2019.

It is very comfortable and quiet. It has many cool features

I love the BMW X3! It is very comfortable to ride in and very quiet. It very comfortably fits my entire family of 5. It has a ton of features that are great too!

- Jen H

How smooth a ride it is and the niceness of the interior.

My BMW is very smooth with a quiet engine. The interior is black leather and looks very sleek. I wish I could have keyless entry to unlock the doors.

- Amie R

How awesome it drives. It is wonderful!

No complaints at all. It drives very smoothly and the features are incredible. The radius of the wheel is unparalleled.
