Finished off in photonic blue metallic and it has an msrp just over 50 000. so to start off today’s review we’re going to take a look at what powers this x drive 30i i have the vehicle locked right now and the key in my pocket all i need to do is place my hand on the door handle you can hear it automatically unlock and down in the driver footwell if we just pull

On this latch twice that will release the hood you can get a sneak peek of that interior complements this exterior blue very nicely and with that double pull on the latch all we have to do is open up the hood and this reveals the two liter twin power turbo four cylinder engine paired to the 8-speed automatic transmission it pumps out 248 horsepower around 5200

Rpm and 258 pound-feet of torque around 1400 rpm this model is all-wheel drive it weighs in right around 4 100 pounds it’ll do zero to 60 in six and a half seconds up to its top speed of 130 miles an hour and it also has a fuel capacity of 17.2 gallons and you can expect to see around 21 miles per gallon in the city and 28 out on the highway this has a wheelbase

Of 112.8 inches its overall length is 185.9 it has a width of 74.7 a height of 66 inches and its maximum ground clearance is 8 inches so as we work our way to the exterior now for the all-new x3 i’m gonna start up front with the grille so you’ll notice that it still retains the kidney style design with the vertical bars running throughout it and on this particular

Model we have a lot of brushed aluminum trim accents that includes the grille this also has active grille shutters just behind that so those will open to help better provide more airflow to this engine and you’ll also notice on this particular model we have a front sensor right in the middle this is for the pre-collision for the front end of course there’s also

Parking sensors that run throughout it but it’s very nicely incorporated right into the middle you’ll see there’s more brush trim on the lower section of the bumper too as well as the grille to provide even more cooling and then over on the sides you can see there are functional air inlets so this will help provide better aerodynamics the airflow can enter those

Channels and go right around the front tires you’ll also notice there’s really nice contoured lines we have them just underneath the headlights on both sides and moving on to the headlights now this has the adaptive led headlights along with the led drls and led turn signals and you’ll notice the drl is actually both of these but the outer one also acts as the

Turn signal very nice sleek design for the headlight housing itself and you’ll also see there’s really nice lines that come down the hood too meeting the top of the grille nicely just gives it a great design overall and then as we make our way to the side profile now this x3 has a really nice set of 19 by seven and a half inch wheels you can see the multi-spoke

Design along with the dark finish just to match all the other brushed aluminum accents you can see them running in the lower section of the side skirt also the trim piece just behind the front tires we have that trim surrounding all the windows and then up top this does have a full moon roof you can also see the roof racks or finish off in that brushed trim this

Has the body colored side mirrors that feature the integrated turn signal and you can see the crisp lines run to the side profile there’s one that runs the height of the door handles going from that front fender all the way to the rear handle just to give it more flair from the side profile design and you can see there’s also another line that runs all the way to

These led tail lights they are reshaped from the previous model and i think they have a great look to them especially with the turn signal running right through the middle this also has a body colored spoiler you can see some of the gloss black just to tie it in with this rear glass third brake light is located up top and the wiper blade is in the lower section

To help better improve rear facing visibility this also has a backup camera with all the parking sensors nicely integrated you can see the lower section of the bumper has more of that brushed trim just to tie it in nicely and then on each side of that is the dual exhaust and now it’s time to take a look at the interior so i have the vehicle unlocked already you

Can use the sensors on the door handle to lock the doors of course but now we can get a better look at this beige leather interior you’ll see on this model there’s wood and more brushed aluminum trim you can see brushed aluminum on the release handle we have the memory seating adjustments as well as lock in unlock and just on the inside of the grab handle we have

Enter and exit and to start this up we have the engine start stop button located down below so with my foot on the brake it’s time to fire it up and you’ll see on this large digital gauge cluster over on the left side is the miles per hour as well as the fuel gauge on the right side is the attack and the engine temperature you’ll also notice too right now there’s

A map right in the center so when you have the navigation on and running on the middle screen there it will show up on the background right in the center so that’s a great option to see you’ll also notice too within the attack you can see what gear the vehicle is as well as the driving mode so right now it is in sport plus in order to change those we have those

Controls down below you have sport comfort and eco pro with a few different settings in each one so you can see sport individual as well as sport there’s comfort as i already mentioned and then eco pro and eco pro individual you’ll also notice it change right in the center so you can go through all this information and configure it how you’d like to drive this

Use you can install making it very easy and this model also has the gesture control so you can see i can adjust the volume just by spinning my finger clockwise or counterclockwise of course we have the physical button for that too if you’d like to use either one you’ll notice too just underneath the screen here we have a shortcut to the intelligent safety if i go

All the way over into configure you can look at the forward collision as well as the lane departure your steering intervention and your active blind spot you’ll see there’s two air vents on both sides more of the brushed aluminum and the wood trim which is a really nice touch and then right in the center is another lcd screen this is for all the climates so you

See there’s an x3 badge on the back side here finished off in brushed aluminum and a small compartment right in the middle so if i open this up you can see there’s a great place to put your phone we have an auxiliary along with a small area here maybe for the key fob you can also see two cup holders and a 12 volt and then you can close that up if you’d like to

Working our way to the middle you already saw all these controls for that center screen we have the engine start stop button all the different driving modes as well as the electronic parking brake and over on the left side you can see the engine start stop feature as well as being able to turn on and off the parking sensors and then traction control is the upper

One and then making your way to the gear selector now just by pushing the release on the left side i can go all the way up into reverse where you’ll see the backup camera up here along with the sensors over on the right side and then to put the vehicle into drive we just go all the way back if we pop it over to the left that is for the manual setting which allows

Us to use these steering wheel mounted paddle shifters and then to put the vehicle into park we’ll just click the p on the back as we make our way to the center armrest now you’ll see there’s a good amount of space for all the items that have to go there and then same with the glove box you can see all of that room we’ll take one last look at these seats which

Have a really nice design to them and as i did mentioned earlier we have a full panoramic sunroof for this x3 so you’ll see that roof go all the way to behind the backseat passenger’s head providing a lot of light for the interior we also have the sunroof controls as well for tilting and sliding and you can see the dome lights are up here too but now it’s time to

Take a look at the rear seats so we can shut this off open up the door here and as we work our way to the back seats now you’ll see the door panel is finished off just like up front and at five foot ten i’ll go ahead and hop in with the front seat set at my height you can see i have plenty of room for my feet and my legs we do have some storage nets behind both

Front seats there’s two air vents in the center as well as the climate controls for your backseat passengers so you have the temperature and where you’d like the air to go along with two usbc ports and there is plenty of room for three people to be in the back you can see i have this section of the seat fully reclined this one is all the way up so you do have that

Versatility if i pull down the center armrest here you can see there are two cup holders in it and these back seats also have a 40 20 40 split so i can fold this middle one down if you have any larger items that you want to go through and you have a passenger on both sides or you can fold all these seats down giving you a lot more interior storage which is really

Great to see and you as you can tell we have a lot of visibility for the backseat passengers even with this moon roof all the way open definitely provides a lot of light and last up we’ll take a look at the storage space for the rear we’ll just push on the button up underneath the bmw logo and the power liftgate will automatically open up and you’ll see there’s

A ton of room in the back with the back seats up really nice flat surface you can see the tracks on both sides so you could put some tie down hooks and safely secure any items you have in the back over on the driver’s side there is a net we also have a strap here too where you can place some odd shaped items and there’s a hook here for bags or groceries anything

Like that up underneath the floor you can see there’s a lot more hidden storage space to put in any items here that you’d like to and then we also have the removable cover so you can use this if you need to and then with the all the back seats folded down you can see just how much more versatile this x3 is providing you with a lot of storage for any items you’d

Like to place in the back and then with that power liftgate we can either close and lock the vehicle or just close it all right so getting the all-new 2022 bmw x3 out on the road now i recently checked out the x5 and the x7 so if you’d like to see those reviews i’ll have those down in the description the x3 is basically in the middle of the suv lineup for bmw

There’s the x1 and the x2 and then right in the middle we have the x3 here so while this is not the largest suv from bmw it offers a lot of interior storage as you’ve already seen in today’s video you can pack a lot into this car so if you’re not looking for a very large suv this is a great option and visibility while i’m looking over my left shoulder here is very

Good for the size of this car the pillars in the back are really not all that bulky and of course you can use your side mirrors i can easily look out of the rear view mirror there look over my right shoulder here you pretty much have a 360 view even with this backup camera here great graphics to see what’s behind you with the xdrive 30i it’s not the top of the

Line for the x3 but we have a lot of nice materials on the inside and that’s one thing that i love about bmw you don’t have to get the top level to get all the premium feeling materials we have heated leather seats we have the wood the brushed aluminum it’s a very nice interior for the price point of this suv and while we’re making a pretty tight u-turn here we

Can talk about the maneuverability especially if you’re in a parking lot situation has a very tight turning radius which is great to see and i have put a few miles on this so far let’s talk about what it’s like to drive it’s very smooth there’s not a whole lot of road noise or wind noise and i have been in comfort mode for the majority of this drive so in sport

Mode here we’ll give it a little bit of gas and we’re up to the speed limit just like that for the 2-liter twin power turbo engine i definitely don’t see it being underpowered you can opt for larger engines for the x3 but if you’re not looking to do that this has plenty of get up especially for the weight and so now switching over to the pov angle so you can

See what it’s like behind the wheel of the all-new bmw x3 you can get a sense of all this technology that i’ve gone over and how upscale it really is and i love that across the board with all the bmws as i already mentioned handling in this also is very good we don’t have the upgraded suspension but just coming around a turn at normal speed there seems to handle

Great for an suv and even taking bumps like that in the road it absorbs them very well we’re gonna put this into a sport now we’ll go into a sport plus and use these paddle shifters here you can see the big m3 there for what gear we’re in manual and second like i said the shifts are very quick very impressive to see for this xdrive30i you can hear some of the

Traffic passing us but it’s very normal it’s not crazy loud and this is just a really nice place to be if you’re looking to daily drive an suv you don’t need a crazy amount of room it’s definitely a perfect spot we also have the lane keeping assist which is currently on and of course you can feel that if you don’t use your turn signal and you go over a line

Left or right you can feel the feedback in the steering wheel wanting to straighten you out of course that’s what it’s designed to do but i think that’s going to wrap it up for my walk around review and test drive getting behind the wheel of the all-new 2022 bmw x3 xdrive30i once again huge shout out to hendrickbmw northlake for providing this suv for me today
