How to reduce fuel consumption in an X3 20i

Asked by Al

The fuel consumption of my 2016 BMW X3 20i is 13L/100km. I drive in Eco pro mode and urban and freeway. What is the usual fuel consumption? Do I have to get in more km for this to drop?

Your fuel consumption is way off the claimed consumption figures released by BMW. The company claims the X3 20i should get on average 7.3L/100km, 6.2L/100km on the highway, and 9.2L/100km in city driving. You have to allow for some variation on those numbers due to individual driving conditions, but to be so far out suggests there is something wrong with your car. I wouldn't expect it to reduce enough to get even close to those numbers simply by driving it. Have it checked by your BMW dealer.
