The BMW X3 is a smaller five passenger SUV/Crossover that competes with models like the Audi Q5 and Cadillac SRX. Model designations indicate the equipped powertrain. For example, the X3 xDrive 28i equips a 240-bhp turbocharged four-cylinder engine and all-wheel-drive and the X3 xDrive 35i equips a 300-bhp turbocharged inline six-cylinder engine and all-wheel-drive. The X3 has a base price around $39,000 which does not include leather seating.
