How's it drive?
It doesn't take long behind the steering wheel to determine that the
second-generation X3 is a far more rounded proposition than its
popular predecessor. In every dynamic discipline it displays the sort
of improvement to see it more closely challenge premium-priced rivals
such as the Audi Q5 and the Mercedes-Benz GLK.
Performance-wise, the new BMW leaves little to be desired. With a
sturdy 300 lb-ft of torque at just 1,300 rpm, the xDrive35i's engine
makes light work of the 4,222-pound curb weight. BMW claims 0 to
60 mph in 5.5 seconds, about 1.2 seconds quicker than the
xDrive28i,to make it the fastest-accelerating SUV in its class.
The solid reserves of torque also enhance the X3's cruising ability.
The early production example we drove in Atlanta this week wasn't
quite as refined as we expected, with a somewhat gruff nature to
the engine under full throttle loads. But with impressive mid-range
flexibility and only a distant hum to the engine in top gear at legal
limits, its part throttle qualities were exemplary. There are no official
North American consumption figures for the xDrive35i just yet.
Going on the impressive European numbers, though, it is likely to
be one of the most economical SUVs in its class despite the fact
that North American versions go without the standard stop/start of
their European siblings.
This is one well-sorted chassis. From the meaty feeling of the new
electromechanical steering, to the low levels of roll and the tenacious
grip, the X3 is more entertaining to drive hard than either the Q5
or the GLK. Part of this can be traced to the optional “Dynamic
Performance Control” system found on our test car. It uses an
electronic differential similar to that available on the smaller X1 to
alter the level of drive being apportioned to each individual rear
wheel for more neutral cornering.
The biggest improvement, however, concerns the ride. While the old
X3 punished occupants with an overly firm and, at times, harsh ride,
the new one is considerably more supple. It now feels more
controlled and better riding in sport plus than the old model did
with on its standard chassis settings.
