How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

The BMW X3 is among the best large SUVs for front seat space. Its high roofline ensures that tall adults will have no problems with head room, and leg room is top-notch too. And with two in the front, the wide interior means you’ll not be invading each other’s personal space.

Each front door has a decent-sized bin and the glovebox is no mere token effort. The front armrest lifts to reveal a generous cubbyhole and there's another cavernous space for your keys or wallet in front of the gear selector.

No seven-seat option is offered. If you need seven seats then look at the Discovery Sport or one of the excellent non-premium alternatives, such as the Peugeot 5008.

Seat folding and flexibility

The front passenger seat in the X3 can be adjusted manually for height, but lumbar adjustment is merely an option on all variants. Electric seat adjustment, with memory settings, is standard on top trim levels.

The rear seats split in a 40/20/40 configuration and fold flat to open up more space for bulkier items. The back seats don't slide back and forth, as they do in the Discovery Sport and on some versions of the Q5.
