Model Highlights

The BMW X3 comes in four models: sDrive28i, xDrive28i, xDrive28d and xDrive35i. 28i models have a so-called TwinPower turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, displacing 2.0 liters and making 240 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Peak torque is achieved at just 1,250 rpm, so this engine is very responsive; it can move the X3 to 60 mph in just 6.5 seconds and to a governed top speed of 130 mph. The 28d model uses a 2.0L 4-clyinder diesel engine that makes 180 horsepower and 280 foot pounds of torque. Lastly, the 35i model comes with a 300-hp, 3.0L turbocharged in-line six that's the choice for those who want the most performance. Both gasoline engines have Valvetronic variable valve timing and direct fuel injection.

With any engine, the X3 has a responsive and quick-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission, and it includes an Eco Pro mode that--when the button is depressed--helps improve fuel economy by optimizing heating and air conditioning use, softening accelerator response and changing shift times. All models also have Auto Start/Stop, which shuts off the engine when waiting at stoplights--starting quickly when the brake is released; and Brake Energy Regeneration essentially saves fuel by using the alternator smartly. Fuel economy ratings are 21 mpg city, 28 highway with the xDrive28i, or 19/26 with the xDrive35i.

Most versions of the X3 offer the xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive system, which works together with the stability control electronics and normally send 60 percent of torque to the rear wheels; a multi-disc clutch system can send up to 100 percent to the rear wheels when it's needed for traction--whether by a slippery road situation or high-performance driving. X3 models also have Servotronic speed-sensitive steering, although a Variable Sports Steering--essentially a variable-rack system--is optional. The X3 rides on run-flat tires.

The interior of the X3 is set up like a wagon, only with a somewhat higher seating position and plenty of headroom. Ingress and egress are easier than in a sedan and the back seat can fit three across, albeit snugly. There's a ski pass-through and the rear seatback is split 40/20/40 so that it can be folded for any combination of passengers and cargo. The X3 also offers a number of small storage cubbies in the doors, the dash and center console.

Standard equipment includes a power tailgate, 18-inch wheels, a universal garage-door opener, a panoramic moonroof, xenon headlamps, automatic climate control, dynamic cruise control, fog lamps, power front seats, driver seat memory and a BMW Professional sound system with HD Radio and satellite radio compatibility. BMW Assist eCall and TeleServices emergency roadside assistance and concierge services are now included, too.

The options list is long and includes both major packages and a la carte items. Some of the larger packages include a Dynamic Handling Package (Dynamic Damper Control, Performance Control and Variable Sport Steering), a Driver Assistance Package (rearview camera with Top View and Park Distance Control), an M Sport Package (high-gloss roof rails, sport seats, an aero kit, an Anthracite headliner, Shadowline exterior trim, an M Sports leather steering wheel, paddle shifters, Dynamic Damper Control and 19-inch M light-alloy double spoke wheels), or the Technology Package (navigation, real-time traffic, a head-up display, BMW Apps).


Model News

BMW has given the X3 a facelift for 2015, reworking both the interior and exterior styling to make the vehicle look just a bit more up to date. Additionally, several new mechanical configurations are available for 2015. Rear wheel drive will be an option on the 4-cylinder gasoline model, while a new 4-cylinder diesel engine has also been introduced. It promises to improve fuel economy while still providing adequate power.


Value Writeup

The X3 is one of the quickest and most nimble-handling of the compact luxury-brand crossovers; yet it's also one of the most fuel-efficient in 4-cylinder xDrive28i form. The sensible, yet stylish cabin strikes a great balance between plush comfort and practical family sensibilities, and it has one of the more comfortable back seats in its class; while the number of useful high-tech features and driver aids is impressive.

Summary
BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain model year 2015 X3 and X4 Sports Activity Vehicles manufactured July 28, 2014 to July 29, 2014. The affected vehicles may have been produced with a driver's side exterior rearview mirror that was designed to meet non-US market requirements. Thus, these vehicles fail to comply with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards No. 111, "Rearview Mirrors."

Consequence
The driver may not notice that vehicles viewed in the mirror are closer than they appear, increasing the risk of a crash.

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver's side exterior rearview mirror, free of charge. The recall began on December 16, 2014. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417 or CustomerRelations@bmwusa.com.

The affected vehicles have a driver's frontal air bag inflator that may have been improperly welded.

Consequence
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, the inflator housing could separate from the base plate and result in metal striking the vehicle occupants, potentially resulting in serious injury or death.

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver's front air bag, free of charge. The recall began on November 1, 2016. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
