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

Entry-level trim is packed with kit, including luxuries including LED headlights, automatic lights and wipers, interior ambient lighting, 18in alloy wheels, three-zone climate control, a powered tailgate, cruise control and heated leather seats and an 8.8in infotainment screen with sat-nav Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Apart from adding adjustable lumbar support to the front seats, there’s no need to spend any more.
The engineSee full engine specs
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. In fact, it’s way punchier than the rather lacklustre Land Rover Discovery Sport D180 and will just about see off the impressive Audi Q5 45 TDI in a drag race. 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.
