Priced at a base MSRP of $43,000, the 2021 BMW X3 comes loaded with all the features and equipment. Coming in two trim levels, namely sDrive30i and xDrive30i, the 2021 BMW X3 retains the same 2.0L Twinpower turbocharged engine producing 248 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, helping to propel from 0-60 MPH in just 6 seconds. For this 2021 iteration, BMW has also managed to provide more interior and driver-assistance features as standard like Android Auto, SiriusXM radio, and Active Driving Assistant Package.

Even with all these upgrades, the 2021 BMW X3 has only witnessed a $1000 bump in the base MSRP, in comparison to the outgoing 2020 X3.

"With its more stylish X4 sloped-roof companion, the X3 rides in the middle of the BMW lineup, between the smaller X1 and the larger X6. "- TheCarConnection.com

Coming with the same 2L Twinpower inline-4 motor producing 248 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque mated to the 8-speed torque converter automatic transmission, the 2021 BMW X3 remains unchanged from the outgoing 2020 X3 in the mechanical front. The base sDrive30i is offered at an MSRP of $43,000 and comes with an RWD drivetrain configuration. However, the xDrive30i, which comes at an MSRP of $45,000, gets a full-time AWD system as standard.

For the 2021 iteration, BMW has provided a few more interior and safety features as standard like the Android Auto, SiriusXM radio, and the Active Driving Assistant Package, which includes features like lane-departure warning and blind-spot monitoring. However, all the other features that came with the 2020 BMW X3 like the Live Cockpit Plus, 3-zone automatic climate control system, aluminum roof rails and exterior trims, and a 10.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system also comes with the 2021 BMW X3.

Apart from these two trims, the 2021 BMW X3 also comes with the 2021 BMW X3 M and the 2021 BMW X3 M40i, both of which come with a more powerful 3L twin-turbo inline-6 motor, producing significantly better horsepower and torque. Coming at a base selling price of $69,900 and $56,600, they are also more expensive than the regular 2021 BMW X3.  A plug-in hybrid trim, the 2021 BMW X3 xDrive30e, is also on offer for an MSRP of $49,600 and offers superior gas mileage.

The 2021 BMW X3 offers all the features of the outgoing 2020 X3 like the 10.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Live Virtual Cockpit, 3-zone automatic climate control system, and heated and powered seats. For the 2021 iteration, BMW has also added more features like Android Auto, Sirius XM radio and a host of driver assistance features like lane-departure warning and blind-spot monitoring.

2021 BMW X3 Buying Advice

We recommend opting for the 2021 BMW X3 xDrive30i since it comes equipped with a full-time AWD system that works pretty well in the snow. A base selling price of $45,000, which is just $2000 more expensive than the sDrive30i, also makes it quite a value for money proposition. For your comfort and convenience, we also suggest equipping the Premium Package, which is priced at an MSRP of $4500, bringing many sophisticated features like a Live Cockpit Professional-integrated dashboard, a heads-up display, a panoramic moonroof, Connected Package Pro, comfort access keyless entry, heated steering wheel, and lumbar support.

"Models in the 30i division certainly don't struggle on the highway and you're unlikely to have issues when passing slower vehicles." -CarBuzz.com

The 2021 BMW X3 retains the same turbocharged inline-four unit that has worked wonders for it in the previous model years. The 2.0L Twinpower turbocharged inline-4 motor on offer with the 2021 BMW X3 provides a respectable 248 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. This motor is a tried and tested unit that also serves many other Bimmers like the 2021 BMW X4. However, the 2021 BMW X3 M40i and 2021 BMW X3 M models come with a 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-6 motor producing 355 hp and 473 hp, respectively.

The sDrive30i trim of the 2021 BMW X3, which comes at a base MSRP of $43,000, is offered with an RWD drivetrain layout. However, the xDrive30i variant gets the full-time AWD system. Nevertheless, both the variants are mated to the same 8-speed torque converter automatic transmission, offering selectable driving modes and sequential shift control with steering-mounted paddle shifters.

2021 BMW X3 accelerates from 0-60 MPH in 6 seconds

Due to the presence of an impressive inline-4 turbocharged motor mated to a snappy 8-speed automatic transmission, the 2021 BMW X3 offered one of the fastest 0-60 MPH and a quarter-mile time of 6 seconds and 15.1 seconds, respectively. Both the 2021 Mercedes Benz GLC 300 and the 2021 Volvo XC60 offered a slower 0-60 MPH time of 6.1 seconds and 6.4 seconds. However, the 2021 Audi Q5 turned out to be slightly faster to reach 0-60 MPH, taking 5.9 seconds.

The 2021 BMW X3 also has the DNA of a BMW and hence this compact crossover SUV feels quite impressive around the corners too. The handling is sure-footed and the body roll is minimal. Adaptive suspension on offer also makes the 2021 X3 feel planted during high-speed drives. Even though the suspension is tuned to the firmer side, dial the car to the comfort mode to have a supple traveling experience. To top it off, the braking performance was top-notch and the steering offered an impressive feel and feedback too.

Nevertheless, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 turned out to be the lightest compact luxury SUV of the segment, coming in just 3,889 lbs, which is more than 100 lbs lighter than the 2021 BMW X3.

2021 BMW X3 vs 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300

The 2021 Mercedez-Benz GLC 300, which comes at a base MSRP of $43,200, offers a decent list of equipment and features as standard, similar to the 2021 BMW X3. The safety and infotainment features are also quite well-packed. Coming in with a 2L turbocharged inline-4 motor, producing a better 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque, with an even lower curb weight in comparison to the 2021 X3 are added advantages as well. However, the 2021 BMW X3 came out as a better offering in terms of driving experience, ride quality, and acceleration on offer. The gas mileage offered by the 2021 BMW X3 was also slightly superior.

2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300

2021 BMW X3 vs 2021 Audi Q5

The 2021 Audi Q5 is one of the best offerings in the compact luxury SUV segment due to a decently powerful motor, spacious and well laid out cabin, and a generous list of interior features on offer as standard. However, the gas mileage of 24 MPG is lower than the 2021 BMW X3. The 2021 Audi Q5, which comes at a base MSRP of $43,400, is also not as engaging to drive as the 2021 BMW X3. Nevertheless, the 2021 Audi Q5 offered the best in class cargo capacity and a slightly superior acceleration figure.

2021 BMW X3 vs 2021 Volvo XC60

Though the 2021 Volvo XC60 ticks all the boxes for a comfortable and opulent daily driver due to the spacious cabin, feature-rich infotainment system, and best-in-class fuel efficiency of 26 MPG, it doesn't come out as the most enticing offering in terms of performance and driving dynamics. Sure, there isn't anything too major to complain about, however, in comparison to the Germans, the 2021 XC60, which is priced at a base MSRP of $44,000, feels a bit unexciting. The interior quality is not the best of the lot as well.

2021 Volvo XC60

2021 BMW X3 Final Verdict

The 2021 BMW X3 turned out to be one of the best compact luxury crossover SUVs of the segment due to the impressive performance from the 2L turbocharged inline-4 motor coupled with excellent gas mileage. The best in class driving experience on offer along with supple ride quality are also added advantages. To top it off, the 2021 BMW X3, which is priced at a starting MSRP of $43,000, also offers all the bells and whistles in terms of interior, infotainment, and safety features. Hence, if you are searching for a compact luxury crossover SUV, the 2021 BMW X3 should be on top of your list.

Rather buy an Audi

Pros - Cabin design, easy to drive, spacious

Cons - Controls are not user-friendly, touch screen lags sometimes, design/styling is outdated

Want a German car? Buy an Audi! X3 does have some good driving dynamics but when it comes to practicality it loses out big times. The space in the back is a little cramped up for taller people around heads and legs. On the inside, it behaves more like a small two-seater coupe than a hatch. The infotainment is confusing and the controls are not very well put together. It takes quite a lot of time to get the hang of how to use them. Not only that but the design feels outdated too. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable

2021 X3

Pros - Looks/styling, ride comfort, interior

Cons - Gas mileage

Go for it. The new 2021 version is even more comfortable and responsive than the previous year version. The transmission in BMWs is always fantastic and the same goes true for this one as well as it makes a lot of difference when it comes to driving quality. My favorite has to be the noise-free drive Great cabin space. Feels pretty comfortable no matter where I seat. optional Xline package makes it look different. Driver aids do come with this package. Not sure as of now. Got a few added extras which took the price close to $48,000 Helping staff made me chose the best trim for me

2021 BMW X3

Pros - Beautiful interior, stunning exterior

Cons - 2.0 engine is not enough, transmission

A practical car. I have been getting great gas mileage in my driving and above-average performance for SUVs at this price bracket. Handling is another delight of BMW. The climate control is really good. Cools and heats the cabin really fast. The inside is considerably roomy, and also the interior design could have been much more premium. I really like the refreshed styling. looks fresh. Properly safe. Proper maintenance should keep it running. No options, costed me $47,845 good deal and discounts. friendly staff

Huge but easy to drive

I'm not sure about the details but this x3 is going to be with us for a very long time. It is the best suv and we're trading it anytime soon
