With excellent all-road capabilities, the all-new 2011 BMW X3 delivers pleasing driving experience. Although it looks like a crossover sports utility vehicle (SUV) but it actually is not what it looks like.

It gives sports vehicle like performance and handling.

It’s 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine is paired to the eight-speed automatic transmission and delivers 240 horse power. Along with more luxurious interior, the X3 offers a long list of standard convenient features such as added interior space for rear passengers, leatherette upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, HD radio, Bluetooth wireless connectivity and BMW’s iDrive system.
This luxury SUV possesses sumptuous accident avoidance features like xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive system, Dynamic Stability Control with rollover sensor, and Hill Descent Control combine to offer excellent handling, traction and stability for a wide variety of terrain conditions.
