All X3s come with stability control, six airbags and a tyre pressure monitor as standard. Euro NCAP awarded the X3 five stars in its crash tests, where it scored similarly well compared with its rivals across the individual categories.
Of course, being a premium car, you would expect many of the latest safety aids to be available. Well, you get automatic emergency braking as standard, while blindspot monitoring, lane assist, rear cross traffic alert and traffic sign recognition are among some of the useful options you can add.
Security firm Thatcham Research has carried out tests on the X3’s resistance to theft. It scored very highly, achieving above-average marks for guarding against being stolen or broken into.
