Over 7 years, it won the hearts of 600000 buyers. Now it's time for the next generation of X3, the little brother of the BMW X5. Powering the X3 is either the tried and tested 2-litre diesel with 184hp which can be combined with a manual 6-gear transmission or as an extra with the new 8-gear automatic, which is more expensive but clearly the better choice. Alternatively, there's the 3.5i, a straight six 3-litre motor offering 306hp with the 8-gear automatic transmission as standard.
