Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Despite the fact that BMW has effectively shoehorned a big battery under the floor of the car, rear space is just as good as it is in the regular BMW X3. That means two tall people can sit quite comfortably in the back of the iX3 with leg and head room to spare. Even if you add a middle rear passenger into the equation, things are still agreeable for all concerned.

The outer rear seats can also be reclined to give a more laid back seating position, a feature that isn’t available in the iX3’s direct rivals.

The main boot area is identical to the regular X3’s, too, which means it’s slightly smaller than an Audi E-tron’s but bigger than a Mercedes EQC’s. The only things you lose in the iX3 is a bit of underfloor storage, but there’s still enough for the charging cable.

40/20/40 split-folding rear seats come as standard on both trim levels.
