The New BMW X3
The best compact 4x4 you can buy has arrived at Peter Vardy Edinburgh. The BMW X3 is classy, practical and a pleasure to drive. The engines are very efficient, too, and the standard kit is particularly generous.
The X3’s cabin is built from high-quality materials and the attention to fit and finish is exemplary, it’s more than a match for anything in the class. The X3 comes with the latest version of BMW’s iDrive controller, so you can flip through an encyclopedia of entertainment and set-up menus quickly and easily. The driving position is excellent, too when you adjust the seat to your preference. Build quality is up to BMW's highest standards; the thick doors shut with a solid thud and once aboard the idea of this being a premium car continue thanks to well-chosen cabin plastics, comfortable leather seats and the built-in iDrive screen, all of which come as standard.
As benefits a car in this segment – and of this price – the BMW X3’s cabin is a classy, well finished place. The switchgear and instruments are shared with other BMW models, but the X3’s blend of a tall dashboard built around a central display screen and its relatively upright seating position work together to create an unmistakable SUV vibe.
Every BMW X3 comes with front, side and curtain airbags, and a host of electronic aids that are designed to keep you out of trouble. What’s more, the bonnet features energy-absorbing deformation zones to improve pedestrian protection. On the security front, deadlocks, marked parts, an alarm and locking wheelnuts are all included to keep your pride and joy safe. Other standard equipment includes nappa leather upholstery, 17in alloy wheels, front and rear parking sensors and the previously mentioned iDrive controller.
But the most impressive aspect is the effective invisibility of the economy-boosting eco tech, none of which gets in the way of the driving experience. The basic four-cylinder X3 manages the neat trick of being both greener and quicker than all of its rivals.
The BMW X3 is both frugal and rewarding to drive. To try this rare and clever technical achievement for yourself, complete the form below to book your test drive at Peter Vardy Edinburgh.
