Since the generation changed in 2017, you can choose from a wide range of models if you want to buy the BMW X3 or its SUV coupe twin, the BMW X4, as a used car. The second generation is also a true all-rounder.

|negative||First generation with strong chassis, low quality display until 2014|
With the third generation BMW X3 (from 2017) it became clear how much the Bavarian has grown – the previous model from 2003 was still a small, tight and sporty SUV. The following model series each grew by a few centimeters, especially since the BMW X4 was also added in 2014. Cheap used cars can be found among the second-generation models before the 2014 face. These already offer a lot of car for the money. Well maintained examples with few kilometers are already available for less than 20,000 euros. There are a variety of engines to choose from. Apart from the standard 18d and 20i engines, all models come with xDrive all-wheel drive as standard. The 190 hp (140 kW) xDrive20d fits in particularly well with convertible mid-range SUVs. It has plenty of power, drives beautifully and is also economical as a used car. If you want more power, you should take a closer look at one of the powerful six-cylinder engines, which only diesels reduce consumption. The most powerful petrol engines reach up to 510 hp (375 kW) in the new BMW X3 M and BMW X4 M. Also interesting: Tips for our products on Amazon

Buy BMW X3 & X4 as a used car
Second-generation used cars offer plenty of space and a good variety of interiors. Even in the back seat of the BMW X3, adults travel comfortably, with little limitations due to its roofline on the BMW X4. And there is at least 500 liters in the trunk for luggage. The seating position is high, the upholstery is comfortable and durable. With the first generation, however, the feeling of quality fell short of what was expected of a BMW. The plastic parts that looked cheap didn’t live up to the premium claim even after the facelift in 2010. Only with the 2014 facelift has the interior become more modern. However, the use with the rotary button of the BMW iDrive system has always been the same. For safety, BMW has added many innovative assistance systems over the years. In addition to the head-up display, a well-functioning cruise control is recommended. For the 2014 model update, which can be recognized by the headlights stretching to the BMW kidney grille, the list of options was supplemented with additional systems. In terms of chassis, the company’s suspension is seen in the first generation X3. It got better after the facelift, which you should keep in mind if you want to buy a used car. From 2010 there were even adaptive dampers and a lot of driving comfort. But the second generation BMW X3 can also be driven around corners in a fast way. Since then, the BMW X4 has also been available to extroverts with the same technology.
