Our recommendations

Which used BMW X3 4x4 should I buy?

Engine

Of the numerous engines available, it’s the 20d that we would recommend, for its smooth power delivery, strong torque and good fuel economy. The other engines in the range tend to be quite expensive to buy and aren’t as readily available. However, if you only do short journeys, the 20i petrol might be better to avoid diesel particulate filter (DPF) clogging issues.
