Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used BMW X3 4x4?

The BMW X3 has been at the top of its class for a long time, but the Volvo XC60 gives it a run for its money in terms of ride comfort, space and interior quality, even if it’s ultimately not as satisfying to drive.

The Land Rover Freelander is a more capable off-roader and also pretty spacious, while the Range Rover Evoque ups the cool factor and is decent to drive, albeit much smaller than the BMW.
