Review 2013 BMW X3

Penulis : Nur Rahman on Thursday, April 12, 2012 | 6:57 AM

The new BMW X3 has been rated for 21 mpg city and 28 highway. That’s an improvement of 2 mpg in the city and 3 mpg highway compared to the outgoing naturally aspirated inline-six’s 19/25. The new numbers are also better than those of the competition. The base Audi Q5 also uses a 2.0-liter turbo four, but trails the new BMW by 1 mpg in each cycle, at 20/27. The outgoing Mercedes-Benz GLK’s 3.5-liter V-6 and all-wheel drive was a bit thirstier and could manage only 16/21. We expect improvements for the refreshed gasoline GLK, which debuted at the New York auto show, although no numbers have been released yet. (The Merc undoubtedly will have the upper hand with its new diesel option, though, which goes on sale early next year.)

When BMW launched the latest 328i with the same turbo four and eight-speed auto as in the new X3, it predicted mileage of 24/36, only to have the EPA declare the new entry-level 3er good for only 23/33. Given that the X3′s new numbers are EPA-approved, BMW is probably happy that it won’t go through a similarly embarrassing situation with its small SUV.
