The X3 offers a superb driving experience with a deeply impressive lineup of engines, as well as a spacious and high-quality interior. That all adds up to make it one of the very best large SUVs to buy, but it’s still worth checking out the Audi Q5 and Volvo XC60 as highly capable alternatives.get the best price

Also adds 19in wheels over the SE plus a more aggressive-looking bodykit and a stiffer sports suspension, as well as an upgraded infotainment system and digital instrument dials. SE trim makes more sense, though.

This plug-in hybrid is significantly quicker than the 20i. BMW says it will deliver around 30 miles of pure electric power from a full charge – but expect more like 15-20 miles in real-world driving conditions. The pace and range is almost identical to that of its main plug-in hybrid rival, the Audi Q5 TFSI e, and low company car tax is a major benefit. It's ultra quiet in electric mode, and even when the engine fires up its very peaceful. It'll also prove super economical to run if you can keep the battery topped up, but expect the MPG to be no better than the mid-30's when running on the petrol engine alone.
