BMW X3 xDrive30d (2018) Video Review

BMW's X3 is now in its 3rd generation. However, the market segment it plays in has become substantially more crowded. The BMW faces stiff competition in the form of the Audi Q5, Mercedes-Benz GLC, Jaguar F-Pace, Volvo XC60, Lexus NX and most recently the Alfa Romeo Stelvio.

But the X3 promises a particularly wide scope of talents, and, as we found out on the shoot, it seems to have a bit of an identity crisis going on...

In this video, we drive the powerful turbodiesel variant, the xDrive30d. We take the X3 to one of our favourite mountain passes outside Cape Town to sample the motor and handling, take a detailed look at the interior and present a detailed comparison against the Mercedes-Benz GLC350d AMG Line.
