The BMW X3 is a versatile Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV), blending all-road capability and utility with sports car-like performance and handling. The X3 is available in one trim, the xDrive30i, outfitted with a 260-hp 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine and a six-speed manual transmission; a six-speed automatic with Steptronic manual shift mode is available at no additional charge. A comprehensive list of standard equipment includes 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic climate control, wood interior trim and durable leatherette upholstery. The X3's xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive system, Dynamic Stability Control and Hill Descent Control combine to offer excellent handling, traction and stability for a wide variety of terrain and weather conditions. Additional safety-related features include anti-lock disc brakes, rollover sensor, front side-impact airbags, overhead airbags for both rows and a tire pressure monitor. For 2010, the BMW X3 gets HD radio added to standard equipment, while the panoramic glass moonroof becomes optional.
