The 2022 BMW X3 remains one of the desirable luxury crossovers in the segment. The 2022 BMW X3 price starts at $43,700 and an addtional destination fee of $995 is levied. The BMW X3 2022 features refreshed exterior styling to look more dynamic. The front and rear fascias are redesigned, while the X3 xDrive30e hybrid model is no longer available. BMW has added a 48-volt mild-hybrid system to the M40i models and a 12.3-inch infotainment display is now available, accentuating the interior. BMW has also added the M Sport Appearance Package for the 30i models.

Featuring a 3-trim lineup of X3 sDrive30i, X3 xDrive30i, and X3 M40i, the 2023 BMW X3 MSRP can be an expense of $43,700-$57,800 this season. Having said that, it simply translates to the fact that the range-leader 2022 BMW X3 M40i will cost you $14,100 more than the base sDrive30i trim for enhanced specs and assets.

We Recommend

The 2022 BMW X3 specs are pretty decent from the base sDrive30i model and with an msrp of 44,695 it makes a strong case for itself.  We do consider the interior of the X3 sDrive30i to be luxurious and comfortable as well. 


The 2022 BMW X3 sDrive30i/xDrive30i models are powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, producing 248 horsepower. The M-tuned X3 M40i 2022 is equipped with a more powerful 3.0-liter inline-six engine with 48-volt mild-hybrid system and offers 382 hp. The 2022 BMW X3 0-60 times with the inline-four and inline-six engines are 6.0- and 4.4 seconds respectively. The Volvo XC60 loses out the 0-60 mph game. The 2022 BMW X3 dimensions are decent enough, offering 28.7 cubic feet and beating the likes of the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class and the Audi Q5

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

While delivering luxury and practicality, the 2022 BMW X3 SUV also channels sports sedans from BMW's past to blend driving fun into the equation - CarAndDriver

To keep the X3 more enticing, it was facelifted to give a new look on the outside while the interior was lightly refreshed to bring it up to date with new BMW models. Also, with a five-star safety rating from the NHTSA, the 3-Series crossover promises safety. The J.D. Power Consumer Rating score of 82/100 can be considered as “Great”, while the quality and reliability score of 85/100 clearly points at lower issues and recalls. With more safety systems, technology, and standard equipment, the X3 stands among the top luxury crossover in its class. 

With just two recalls and seven complaints, the 2022 BMW X3 problems are not worrisome. Considering a five-year ownership period, The “Cost-to-Own” a 2022 BMW X3 sDrive30i can be mainly divided into depreciation, fuel charges, insurance, repairs and maintenance. The above-mentioned factors are estimated to cost $27,190, $18,340, $7,405, $3,007 and $7,879 respectively. The “Cost-to-Own” will depend on the trim configuration, taxes and financing costs as well.


Buying Advice


Priced at an MSRP of $43,700 we recommend getting the BMW X3 sDrive30i which is the RWD version. We say this because you will not be taking the X3 off-roading and will be using it as a daily driver. Additionally, we would recommend getting the optional Premium package. However, if you do live in an area where the climate involves snow, do select the AWD xDrive30i version.

Fuel Economy

8.0/10

In RWD configuration, the BMW X3 SUV is one of the most fuel-efficient in its class- Carbuzz

With EPA-estimated gas mileage figures of 23 mpg in the city, 29 mpg on a highway, and 25 mpg combined, the 2022 X3 mpg ratings are decent. Opting for the AWD system reduces the combined fuel economy by 1 miles per gallon. The auto start/stop feature is one of the main reasons for its good fuel economy. With a gas tank size of 17.2 gallons, the BMW X3 can travel up to 430/499/464.4 miles in city/highway/combined driving conditions.

Keeping in mind that the Audi Q5 comes standard with the Quattro AWD system, its fuel economy is impressive. The Volvo XC60 offers the best highway range owing to its large fuel tank. It is followed by Audi Q5, Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class and BMW X5.

Interior

7.9/10

The X3's stylish interior comes well equipped before you check a single option box - CarAndDriver

The BMW X3 2022 interior is revised and the center console is all new, taken straight away from the 4 Series sedan. The rest of the interior is the same as the outgoing model. The materials used are fairly BMW and generic. It doesn't stand out in the segment but keeps the cabin classy and does the job there. The build quality is pretty solid and there's nothing to complain about. The leather steering wheel fills the hands nicely and makes the paddle shifters easier to reach. The seats are wrapped in synthetic leather and the seats themselves are comfortable and well-cushioned. Adding to the front-seat comfort are 10-way power front seats with adjustable side bolsters.

Some creature comforts such as heated front seats and steering wheel are optional. Upfront, there is lots of head and legroom for six-footers. The second row has a reasonable amount of room for adults and it can fit two adults comfortably. Comparatively, the legroom is slightly behind the competition. The interior features SensaTec upholstery in a wide range of colors like Canberra Beige, Tacora Red, Cognac, and Black. The Vernasca leather upholstery comes in Black, Mocha, Cognac and Oyster colors. With 28.7 cu.-ft of space behind the second row and 62.7 cu.-ft of space behind the first row, X3 is reasonably practical.

The Volvo XC60 has the largest cargo area in the segment. It is followed by BMW X3, Audi Q5 and Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class.  However, a flat loading lip and square-shaped trunk of the BMW X3 make it easy to store more items easily. In terms of rear seat legroom, the Volvo XC60 and Audi Q5 share the same spot and they are followed by the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class with nearly the same leg space. The BMW X3 might offer the same rear seat comfort as its rivals owing to a lesser rear seat legroom. 

A 10.25-inch iDrive 7 infotainment system sits atop the dashboard. This screen can be upgraded to 12.3 inches, which is new for this year. It features wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay with an in-built navigation system. It is one of the best in the business. The touchscreen response is very quick and the graphics quality is vivid. The menu structure is logically prepared and hence, anyone can operate it easily. The placement of some physical controls has been changed this year. 

Some of the key interior features of the 2022 BMW X3 are: 

  • Tilt & telescopic multi-function leather steering wheel
  • 10-way power front seats
  • Synthetic leather upholstery
  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror
  • Power liftgate
  • Wood & leatherette trim on the dash, center console, and door panels

Exterior

8.0/10

The 2022 X3 is unmistakably a BMW, which is possibly a good thing, depending on an individual’s taste - Kelley Blue Book

The 2022 BMW X3 has been given a refresh or life cycle impulse ( that's what BMW calls) to the exterior. Starting with the front, you will notice a revised front bumper and new LED headlights. These headlights are slimmer and sleeker than the previous version and BMW has given a dynamic 3D shape to the headlights. The front bumper is a single-piece frame and features triangular vents. It retains the same kidney grille with active grille shutters. The X3  has a ground clearance of 8 inches which is good enough for exploring rough terrains. The side profile is essentially the same, but it gets a set of new 19-inch wheels with options up to 21 inches.

The rear features new 3D LED pincer claw-styled taillights and new larger trapezoidal exhaust chrome tips to have a sportier appearance. The lengthy profile of the X3 can be a challenge to par at tight spots. Speaking of appearance, the optional M Sport package adds Shadowline exterior trim, gloss black roof rails, an aerodynamic kit, and 19-inch y-spoke bi-color wheels for $4,100. The X3 30i trims are offered in Alpine White, Black Sapphire Metallic, Brooklyn Gray Metallic, Carbon Black Metallic, Dark Graphite Metallic, Jet Black, Mineral White Metallic and Phytonic Blue Metallic exterior colors.

Although the Audi Q5's wheelbase is short, its rear legroom is more than the X3. The exterior dimensions of the Volvo XC60 are almost similar to the BMW X3. The Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class sits on the longest wheelbase, offering better high speed stability on highways. 

Some of the key exterior features of the 2022 BMW X3 are:

  • LED cornering headlights
  • LED adaptive taillights
  • LED fog lamps

Competition

8.5/10

2022 BMW X3 vs 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class

The Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class is the truest rival to the X3. It prioritizes comfort over sporty handling by offering a smooth ride. Its cabin also feels more opulent than the X3. The X3 excels with better cargo space and athletic handling. Both the SUVs are fuel-efficient and offer an array of standard features. In the end, the choice depends on what you prefer. 

2022 BMW X3 vs 2022 Audi Q5

The Audi Q5 offers agile acceleration owing to its powerful engine. It also offers sporty handling and smooth ride quality like the X3. Although it comes standard with the AWD system, its fuel economy matches the most fuel-efficient version of the X3. Inside, both SUVs feel luxurious and attractive but the X3 offers a bit more cargo space.

2022 BMW X3 vs 2022 Volvo XC60

The Volvo XC60 offers better ride quality than the X3 but is slightly slower in performance. Its interior is also one of the finest in the class while its cargo space also exceeds the X3 by a margin. However, its towing capacity is less than the X3. The XC60 also won awards for its safety. Therefore, the XC60 is a good option if you value safety otherwise the X3 is not bad either.

Final Verdict


The refreshed 2022 BMW X3 strikes a good balance between sportiness and comfort.

Surely, we would suggest buying one, if you are looking out for a luxury crossover in the market.
