BMW X3 Model Years

, Automotive Editor -

BMW launched something interesting back in 2004: a luxury compact SUV. The X3 didn't have much competition back then; it was just about the only SUV that was both luxurious and fun to drive.

Times have changed, and so has the X3. The market is now rich with similar vehicles, but today's second-generation X3 has more power, crisper handling, smoother styling and a classier interior. Its looks and performance reflect its status as a longtime member of the BMW family in good standing.
