What's New in the 2014 BMW X3?

The X3's iDrivesystem is upgraded and includes a new rotary controller with an integrated touchpad. There's also additional standard equipment, notably auto-dimming mirrors and a universal garage door opener

Which X3 is the Best?

The xDrive35i is tempting, but the xDrive28i's turbo4-cylinder is so sweet that we'd go that route instead. Take the $5,000 savings and get the navigation system.

How Much Does a 2014 BMW X3 Cost?

The 2014 BMW X3 is available in two trim levels: 4-cylinder xDrive28i and 6-cylinder xDrive35i.

The xDrive28i($40,725) comes standard with 18-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, keylessentry with push-buttonignition, a power tailgate, auto-dimmingmirrors, a universal garage door opener, auto start/stop, leatherette upholstery, 8-way power front seats with driver memory, a tilt/telescopic steering wheel, automatic climate control, iPod/USB and Bluetooth connectivity, a 12-speaker audio system and the iDrive infotainment system with the basic small, square display.

The xDrive35i ($45,825) adds a turbocharged inline 6-cylinder engine, adaptive xenon headlamps, LED brake lights, wood interior trim, a panoramic sunroof and a sportier steering wheel.

The most notable option is the navigation system, which radically changes the iDrivesystem, replacing the standard screen with a beautiful 8.8-in widescreen display and adding the nifty new touchpad-equipped rotary controller. There are many other options, of course, including sport seats, adaptive dampers, a power tailgate, 19-in wheels (available on both models via the M Sport package) and a 16-speaker, 600-watt audio system.

The X3's rear seat is elevated like those in front, yet there's plenty of headroom, so even lanky passengers will have plenty of space. As for cargo space, there's a respectable 27.6 cu ft of it behind the second row and 63.3 cu ft with the rear seat backs folded down.

2014 BMW X3 vs the competition

Audi Q5-- The Q5 feels nearly as athletic as the X3, and we prefer its styling. A must-drivewith the optional supercharged V6 or turbocharged diesel V6 (TDI).

Cadillac SRX-- Aside from its edgy styling, the SRX's calling card is its standard 3.6-liter V6, which pumps out a healthy 308 hp.

Volvo XC60-- The XC60's available turbocharged inline 6-cylinderis a winner, and we like this crossover's sensible, well-rounded nature.
