BMW X3 xDrive30d 2018 review: snapshot

EXPERT RATING
8.5
The xDrive30d might be the most expensive choice in the BMW X3 family, but that extra cash is paying for extra engine, and so it's identically equipped to the cheaper xDrive30i.

The xDrive30d might be the most expensive choice in the BMW X3 family, but that extra cash is paying for extra engine, and so it's identically equipped to the cheaper xDrive30i.

It's also our pick of the bunch engine-wise, with the xDrive30d making use of a six-cylinder diesel engine good for 195kW and 620Nm. It pairs with an eight-speed "sport" automatic, producing a sprint to 100km/h of 5.8sec.

Your $83,900 investment buys you the same roof rails, colour head-up display, three-zone climate control and wireless charge pad for compatible phones as the rest of the X3 range, but also adds bigger 20-inch alloys, full leather seats, a bigger 10.25-inch touchscreen running the latest iDrive system, and another 12-inch digital display that replaces the traditional gauges in the driver's binnacle.

Stepping up to the 30d (or 30i) also adds BMW's Driving Assistant Plus, which includes Active Cruise Control with AEB, cross-traffic warning and steering and lane assistants. All of that will allow you - in the right conditions - to take your hands off the wheel for spells of 40 seconds.
