If you like the BMW 3 Series, but want an SUV - good news, you can choose from over 400 used BMW X3s on Parkers and get the best of both worlds for less. As a rival to the Audi Q5, Range Rover Evoque and Mercedes-Benz GLC, the BMW X3 is the best combination of size and practicality for most drivers. You can get petrol, diesel, four-cylinder and six-cylinder X3s, with the best combination depending very much on the generation. The original X3, from 2004 to 2010, is only offered with all-wheel drive and works well with the 2.0-litre diesel; this also has the most affordable running costs overall, though the xDrive18d has a slight edge if you’re driving around town more than on motorways. The ride can be a little harsh, and if comfort matters to you you’ll prefer the second generation X3, from 2011 to 2017. Not only is it smoother to drive, it includes a true economy-model - the rear-wheel drive sDrive18d - but for most drivers the appeal of the xDrive30d, with its 260hp six-cylinder, 3.0-litre diesel is hard to resist. Families will prefer the spaciousness of the 2011-on X3, too - it’s nearly as big as the original X5. The 2017-on X3 is lighter, more efficient and very focused on on-road dynamics. All used BMW X3s you find of this age have all-wheel drive - and you can now get petrol engines in the xDrive20i and high-performance M30i. There are hundreds of used and nearly-new BMW X3s for sale on Parkers, find the best deals near you when you search for your next car with us.
