Stepping it up a notch higher and taking things up mid-size is BMW’s X3. Perfect for the modern-day start-up Filipino families, the X3’s increased sized and interior space makes it more muscular in form and function. Higher ground clearance is also evident, allowing it to easily transit between the paved roads and the rugged tracks with minimal thump, especially when the xDrive mode is engaged. Road trips will never be boring with the X3’s on-board entertainment and connectivity features, plus a roomier interior means more space to snug around. Leather is all around in the interior of the X3, inducing a scene of luxury and opulence without delving in too much.
Beating under the hood of the X3 is a twin turbocharged 2.0L in-line 4-cylinder, fused to an 8-speed AT. Opt for the xDrive variant, and things can get pretty much more interesting. Driving responsiveness and agility gets bumped up. Driving dynamics is good. The BMW X3 – straddling the thin line between well-mannered and wild-natured.
