2009 BMW X3 Review
The 2009 X3 Sports Activity Vehicle delivers more of the exhilarating performance and agility you’d expect from a BMW – and none of the big gas-guzzling bulkiness of some SUVs. The X3 SAV is the perfect size. It provides ample cargo space without getting carried away. And with 260 horses that sip a mere 26 miles per gallon it’s the ideal combination of fun efficiency and convenience. The X3 provides a choice of three modes: Drive which incorporates BMW's Adaptive Transmission Control; Sport automatic for a more dynamic shift pattern; and STEPTRONIC automatic for the hands-on control of a manual without using a clutch. Xdrive is an intelligent all-wheel drive system that helps provide optimum performance in virtually all driving situations-on slippery roads up or down hills while cornering. Inside and out there are two words that best describe the 2009 BMW X3 SAV: Just right.
