BMW X3 xDrive28i (2014) review: 33 facts and highlights

1. height

1.68m
Volvo XC70 (2015): 917mm

2. Has four-wheel drive

Four-wheel drive is a system where torque is distributed to all four wheels of the vehicle. It is beneficial in some circumstances such as providing increased traction in tricky weather conditions, but is most suited to off-road driving.

3. larger fuel tank

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.
67l
Chevrolet Suburban LT AWD (2015): 117l

4. greater cargo volume (seats down)

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things. With some vehicles you can put the rear seats down in order to gain more space for cargo.
1600l
Chevrolet Suburban LT AWD (2015): 3429l

5. width

1.88m
Suzuki Jimny (2014): 1.6m

6. Has a turbocharged engine

A turbocharger compresses the air entering the cylinders, allowing more air (and therefore more fuel) to be added - resulting in a more powerful explosion. This leads to an increase in horsepower without increasing the size and weight of the engine.

7. better fuel economy (city)

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
9.1l/100 km
Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 Active (2014): 3l/100 km

8. greater cargo volume

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
550l
Ford Explorer (2017): 2313.5l

9. higher maximum torque

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful car, and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
350Nm
Lamborghini Urus (2019): 850Nm

10. longer wheelbase

The wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase provides the car with more stability and a smoother ride (although a shorter wheelbase can provide more responsive handling).
2.81m
Chevrolet Suburban LT AWD (2015): 3.3m

11. longer drivetrain warranty (years)

The drivetrain warranty covers parts of the car such as the engine, transmission, driveshaft etc. This is usually longer than the basic warranty. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.
4yrs
Mitsubishi Pajero (2017): 10yrs

12. smaller turn radius

The turn radius indicates the smallest circular turn a car can make. With a smaller turn radius it is easier to perform a U-turn in one attempt instead of having to reverse back and forth in order to turn around.
11.9m
Suzuki Jimny (2014): 9.8m

13. better fuel economy (highway)

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
6.2l/100 km
Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 Active (2014): 3.4l/100 km

14. larger engine size

This measurement is the total volume of all the engine's cylinders, also known as the engine displacement. This is one of many aspects of an engine that determine its horsepower, but generally speaking a greater size indicates more power.
2l
Cadillac Escalade (2015): 6.2l

15. Has Bluetooth

Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows you to easily transfer data between different devices, such as smartphones, tablets and computers.

16. better fuel economy (combined)

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
7.3l/100 km
Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 Active (2014): 3.3l/100 km

17. more headroom (rear)

More headroom in the rear of the car makes for a more comfortable passenger experience, and is especially important for taller people. It is also useful if you are transporting cargo in the rear of the vehicle.
994mm
Ford Explorer (2017): 1.03m

18. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
245hp
Faraday Future FF 91: 1050hp

19. more headroom (front)

More headroom in the front of the car makes for a more comfortable driving experience, and is especially important for taller people.
1.03m
GMC Yukon SLE (2015): 1.09m

20. longer basic warranty (years)

The basic warranty of a car covers all aspects other than parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, such as windscreen wipers and brake pads. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.
4yrs
Hyundai Nexo (2019): 5yrs

21. Has a petrol (gasoline) engine

22. weight

1.85t
Mitsubishi ASX (2017): 1.32kg

23. more cylinders

Lamborghini Urus (2019): 8

24. more valves

An intake valve allows the air/fuel mixture to enter the combustion chamber. An engine with more valves tends to increase performance.
16
Lamborghini Urus (2019): 32

25. faster top speed

The fastest speed that the car can reach.
230km/h
Lamborghini Urus (2019): 305km/h
