If you need more space in your next car, but you don't need the power of an off-road capable SUV, a used BMW X3 may be a good choice for you. The BMW X3 is a luxury crossover SUV that was designed to provide the spacious interior of an SUV while maintaining the smooth ride and higher fuel efficiency of a smaller sedan, This vehicle comes with a 3 liter inline 6-cylinder engine that runs at 260 horsepower, a relatively small engine for a BMW model. This smaller engine gives the BMW X3 a better fuel economy than most SUV's, with 24 miles per gallon on the highway. The engine is equipped with an XDrive, intelligent all wheel drive system that can detect when the tires start to lose contact with the road and redistribute the force from the engine between the four wheels accordingly. When the roads are in good condition, drive forces are spread out with a rear-wheel bias, but once the system senses the tires are starting to slip, the torque is shifted more towards the front wheels to increase traction. This XDrive technology, combined with other safety features such as an enhanced braking system and Xenon Adaptive headlights that turn slightly with the wheels to angle the beams around corners, makes the BMW X3 one of the safest models of its class.
