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.

Our pick of the X3’s engine lineup is this 187bhp 2.0-litre diesel. It offers strong performance (0-62mph takes 7.9sec) whether you’re negotiating suburbia or the M1.

Mild hybrid 48v assistance helps deliver good fuel consumption if driven sensibly, and it's RDE2 compliant so there's no diesel surcharge on your company car tax.
