Which? reviews the BMW X3Watch our video review of the small 4x4
14 August 2011
The latest BMW X3 promises 4x4 space and versatility as well as respectable fuel economy.
It's one of the recent cars aiming to take advantage of buyer's desires for large, practical family transport that has all of the good points of 4x4 ownership without high running costs.
The latest version aims to address complaints of the original model, which was criticised for a bouncy ride and low-rent interior- so leather is now standard and it's also got a revised chassis set-up.

We've also just put the xDrive20d through the unique in-depth Which? Car tests - it's got a 2.0-litre common rail turbo diesel engine with good performance and claimed fuel economy of more than 50mpg.
But can it reach that figure in the real world?
