The Exclusive 2021 BMW X3 SUV Spec And Trims Review

After the success of the BMW’s first SUV, the X5, the German automaker launched a new SUV, named the X3, which in all way, is made to meet the needs of shoppers who love the unapologetic luxury and practicality of the X5 but wants it in a smaller package. Leasing the 2021 BMW X3 may not give you the very best luxury compact crossover out there, but you can delight in its solid performance and practicality. For 2021, the X3 has improved much compared to its predecessor. BMW has added many standard features to its compact luxury SUV, including blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane departure warning.


The 30i badge of the 2021 X3 comes standard with a 2.0-liter turbo-four generating 248-hp and 258 lb-ft of torque and rear-wheel-drive. A 3.0-liter turbocharged straight-six powers the M40i model with 382-hp and 362 lb-ft. The high-performance X3 M has a twin-turbo 3.0-liter straight-six that generates from 473 to 503 hp and 442 lb-ft.

A plug-in hybrid model, the xDrive30e model, uses a 2.0-liter turbo-four with a 12-kWh battery to generate 288 hp and 310 lb-ft.

Fuel Economy

EPA rates the xDrive30i and sDrive30i to return 23/29 mpg and 25/29 mpg city/highway, respectively. The M40i is rated at 21/27 mpg, while the plug-in hybrid variant gets 24 mpg in combined city/highway driving and 18 miles of all-electric range.


Inside, the 2021 X3 sports a posh and ergonomically styled cabin. Its seats are spacious, supportive, and well-cushioned. The X3’s roomy interior affords ample passenger and cargo space.


All 2021 X3 models now come with an expanded range of standard driver-assist and active safety features.

Shoppers looking for a luxury compact SUV to lease will always appreciate the 2021 BMW X3. Its excellent blend of comfort, performance, and practicality, not so common in its class, makes it a stand-out value.
