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

The quickest engine in the standard X3’s lineup, this range-topping petrol M40i delivers truly breathtaking pace that sees it crack through 0-62mph in 4.8sec. That’s quicker than anything you’ll find in the Discovery Sport and Volvo XC60 lineup, and will also outgun the performance-focused Audi SQ5 and even the Porsche Macan S. It sounds better than the diesel M40d, but costs about the same to buy and will need a lot more trips to the filling station. The regular 30d is almost as quick in the real world and a lot more frugal.
