Does the lack of output and trinkets rob BMW's entry point into the X3 range, the sDrive20i, from a properly premium experience? We live with it for a week to find out.
Lust after German premium badge cachet, need mid-sized SUV practicality, and would rather dance on broken glass than drive a ‘diseasal’? Then BMW’s newest petrol-powered middleweight family hauler, the X3 sDrive20i, is out to seduce you.
Released late 2017, a couple of months after the completely revamped range arrived in Oz, the $65,900 sDrive20i petrol supplanted the xDrive20d oiler by $3000 as the cheapest way into X3ownership. Or a cool 10 grand more affordable than the mid-range xDrive30i. Had you bought one then, you would have saved a fistful of folding stuff, because the whole range has gone up $1000 since.
As the only sDrive in the pack of xDrives, it’s the only rear-driven X3 currently on sale.
