“Doesn’t feel premium and special” or “poor man’s X5″, “dashboard is boring”. These are just some of the “adjectives” given to the new X3 by the Fifth Gear team. But once they get their hands around the wheel, their thoughts changed: “not a looker, but it’s a great driver.”

While we don’t entirely agree with some of their initial comments, it is always fascinating to hear the reviews of journalists that have a chance to drive a wide range of vehicles.

The engine and ZF transmission get a praise as well: “that 2 liter diesel and the 8-speed automatic are a creamy combination.” But let’s have a look.

    Well in my opinion if anyone buys a BMW for the best interior, they have no eyes (unless you buy an f10 which does have the best interior) but people need to understand that BMW’s are all about the driving experience, and that’s where they all shine. You want the best interior? go to audi. You want the most comfort? Go to lexus or MB

    One more reason why nobody cares what those hacks at fifth gear think.

    Again, the X3 doesn’t do anything for me – in the looks department. Havn’t seen it live up close yet, but I doubt it would change my opinion. I just don’t understand why BMW can’t get the design right? Maybe it is styled for a totally different person to me.

    I love the X1 tho!

    This standard chassis is made with M in mind. :)
