The BMW X3 – A More Family Friendly BMW
BMW is known the world over for being one of the auto industry’s premier luxury manufacturers. BMW drivers are known for being go-getters, movers and shakers, and…well…sometimes, just big ol’ jerks. Regardless of this estimation, we’d like to approach from a different perspective and take a look at a more family friendly BMW.
Popular Mechanic recently named the BMW X3 among its Great Cars for New Families, calling it a “family hauler that’s a rip to drive.” For those with growing families and growing grocery lists, the article sites flexible cargo space (28 cubic feet with rear seats up, 63 feet with them folded down) as a supremely useful asset.
But don’t go thinking that the BMW X3 is just another hum-drum family chariot: the xDrive 28i is powered by a 2.0L TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder that can put down 240-horsepower, and the xDrive35i can get 300 horses from its 3.0L incline 6. Both versions get a 8-speed steptronic shiftable transmission with Adaptive Transmission Control, ensuring sporty handling that’ll make even the most hardened parents feel like a kid again.
A luxurious interior and exterior are quick reminders that your family friendly BMW is still a BMW, capable of beauty, elegance, and power. And with a shop full of accessories that boast superior BMW quality and usefulness for you and your growing tribe, BMW drivers can be guaranteed comfort, style, and luxury all in the same package.
