The 2021 BMW X3 is a well-rounded small luxury SUV. Whether it’s practicality, safety, comfort, technology or performance you’re interested in, the BMW X3 xDrive30e delivers. It’s a mainstay of BMW’s lineup. And it gives you more room than the X1 and X2 while keeping the price reasonable compared to the larger X5.
BMW also gives you the option of making your X3 a little greener with the BMW X3 xDrive30e. It’s a plug-in hybrid, which means it has a regular gasoline engine plus a hybrid system that you can charge using an external power supply. Charge up the hybrid battery and the X3 xDrive30e offers an EPA-estimated 18 miles of electric range. When it runs out of juice, it operates like a standard hybrid and uses its turbocharged four-cylinder engine to keep things moving.
If you’re charging it up between daily commutes, this X3 hybrid might make a good deal of sense.
