It goes without saying that BMW is one of the top premium automotive manufacturers, and the 2019 BMW X3 is a compact luxury SUV that remains one of the automaker’s most popular vehicles. The X3 isn’t a recent entry into this esteemed vehicle class — it was one of the first to delight buyers. It may be a cliché to say the BMW X3 has it all, but that’s the only way to describe this model. It offers buyers excellent driving dynamics, a long list of up-to-date technology features, and lots of amenities to keep the driver and passengers comfortable.

Now in the second year of the third generation, the X3 still appeals to many different drivers. According to the San Luis Obispo car dealership, buyers can select models with rear-wheel- or all-wheel-drive with a host of available features that provide even more luxury.

The automotive press heaps praise on the 2019 BMW X3, with the automotive experts at Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com writing: “If you want a smaller luxury SUV with a potent choice of engines -- including a 6-cylinder -- agile handling, handsome styling and European badge appeal, put the X3 on your list. With the introduction of the sDrive30i base model, the X3 is also one of only two vehicles in its segment to offer rear-wheel drive along with all-wheel drive (the other is the Mercedes-Benz GLC).”

The 2018 BMW X3 seats five and is offered in three trim levels, listed as sDrive30i, xDrive30i and M40i. The sDrive201i and M40i get standard front-wheel drive, while the xDrive30i gets all-wheel drive. The sDrive30i and xDrive30i are equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine developing 248 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The M40i employs a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine generating a hearty 355 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque, also mated to the eight-speed automatic.

EPA-estimated fuel economy for the 2.0-liter engine is 23 mpg city/30 mpg highway (RWD), and 22 mpg city/29 mpg highway (AWD).* The 3.0-liter turbo-four checks in with 20 mpg city/27 mpg highway.

Standard features on the base X3 sDrive30i include a power tailgate, 10-way-power front seats, tri-zone automatic climate control, imitation leather upholstery, a universal garage-door opener, rain-sensing wipers and standard parking sensors. The new Active Guard system comes with frontal-collision warning, and Automatic City Collision Mitigation braking can apply the brakes if it senses a collision is imminent. Also standard is the iDrive infotainment system, which comes with a 10.25-inch touchscreen, and a 205-watt audio system with 12 speakers, Bluetooth and a USB input. Apple CarPlay is optional.

Safety is paramount when you’re choosing a new vehicle, so it’s good to know the 2019 BMW X3 is very safe. The X3 received the top score of Good in all crash tests by the IIHS, and the organization named it a Top Safety Pick+ model, its highest distinction.
