Car Profiles - BMW X3


An update for 2014 gave the X3 some exterior and interior changes which makes it fresh even though it shows its age (yeah, tell it to the rivals). Other than that, it remains a car which balances driving enthusiasm and comfort.

The Good: Balance between comfort and fun to drive handling
The Bad: Ride can get firm

Price Range: P3,490,000-P4,090,000
Our Rating: ****
