With a wide-ranging talents and broad selection of engines, the new 2017 BMW X3 is an excellent choice for a luxury crossover SUV. However, its starting price point is a concern for would-be buyers in the segment, as rivals are competitively priced. The BMW X3 USA release date should be expected sometime in the first half of 2017.
Appealing features available for the BMW X3 2017 include top-notch crash test scores, abundant cargo and passenger space, a choice of three fuel-thrifty and capable engines, and high quality cabin. Changes for the new model are subtle but are a welcome, nonetheless.
There is no doubt that the BMW X3 is the leading light in its class courtesy of the many talents and capabilities it boasts of ranging from capable engines to luxury and comfort details on its cabin. Now in its seventh year of production, the BMW 3 Series keeps its head raised high even despite rivals being competitively priced below it.
In fact, it is almost faultless, and you’d have to go to great lengths to find any if there’s. The only foible that seems to be the only downside to owning the X3 seems to be its heft price tag. This flawless vehicle makes no apologies in demanding a whopping price of around $38,95 for the X3 SUV, and $42,450 for the 2017 BMW X3 Diesel.
Although no significant changes are conspicuously present on the BMW X3, it has received some noteworthy add-ons and improvements nonetheless. The 2017 BMW X3 interior is perhaps the only area that has received significant refreshments meant to burnish its appeal. Its interior technologies and features are crisp, premium and cater for individual tastes and preferences and offer serious reasons for its rivals to go hang before it debuts.
If you have adequate resources to get the 2017 BMW X3, resistance may be futile. But of course, for the rest of us who have meagre resources, shortage of alternatives in this hotly contested segment isn’t admissible. Options include the 2017 Audi Q5, Lexus NX, Acura RDX 2017, and the Volvo XC60.
