The 2018 BMW X3 M40i SUV makes for an excellent contender in the compact luxury SUV. Being a standalone trim, the BMW X3 M40i has a base MSRP of $54,500, competing directly with the Audi SQ5, the Mercedes-Benz AMG GLC 43 SUV, and the Jaguar F-PACE S. Only a 3.0L twin-turbocharged inline-6 engine is offered, mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Together, they produce 355 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. Accelerating from 0-60 in 4.8 seconds, the X3 M40i maintains a combined fuel economy of 23 MPG. BMW offers the X3 M40i in 11 stunning colors, with the Deep Sea Blue Metallic being a particular favorite of ours.
