Why Does The BMW X3 Make A Great Family Car?

Why Does The BMW X3 Make A Great Family Car?

Having been on sale as a luxury compact SUV favourite for nearly two decades now, BMW have proved that the popular X3 is a reliable, safe and comfortable choice for your family.

We’ve come up with some simple and clear reasons as to why the X3 is suited to look after your precious cargo - getting your family where you need to be in comfort and of course, style.

It Looks The Part

The latest BMW X3’s design is definitely something to be envied on the school run.

With the brand’s signature Active Air Stream kidney grille, optimised exterior mirrors, twin exhaust tailpipes, sculptured rear lights and defined trailing edges, even the ‘coolest’ of teenagers would approve of climbing aboard.

Prepared For Family Adventures

The new BMW X3 doesn’t just look ready for a day out in the countryside, it’s also fully prepared to make the drive as smooth and as seamless as possible, ensuring a stress-free journey for both you and the kids.

BMW’s impressive xDrive works in tandem with Dynamic Stability Control to monitor road conditions. Once it senses excess slip, it sends power to the wheel, improving traction and delivery responsive handling.

For when you’re not sure where your family adventure might lead, the X3’s exceptional Driver Experience Control offers you the choice between COMFORT mode, ECO PRO mode geared towards efficiency, and SPORT mode for even more dynamic driving. You’ll always be prepared for the road ahead.

Suitably Sized For A Growing Family

The BMW X3’s bold appearance and confident stance mean you won’t lose it in a car park, and importantly, there’s loads of space for a growing family too.

The large windows and electronic height-adjustable seat give good visibility over traffic, while its smaller SUV-style still fits in an urban landscape. All this makes it very easy to drive around town, dashing effortlessly from school, to clubs, to home – all before bedtime.

It’s easy to pack an X3 with plenty of passengers – and everyone’s luggage too. Parents won’t have to worry about lugging changing bags, PE kits, school projects, instruments or a buggy, as the BMW X3 comes with room for it all.

Additionally, the X3’s beautiful panoramic glass roof lets your family feel more connected to nature, making star-gazing possible and also improving your games of eye-spy.

All The Bells And Whistles

The new X3 comes with BMW’s best infotainment system, so that every passenger is entertained and impressed.

The X3’s 10.25-inch touchscreen and optional Intelligent Personal Assistant makes it easy to use all the state-of-the-art technology available. Simply say ‘Hey BMW’ to start the voice control system, and your wish is the X3’s command.

An intelligent navigation system optimises your drive time, whilst the X3’s host of connectivity features mean it’s easy to keep in touch with anyone, anywhere – especially handy if you need to call home for back-up!

Avoid the ‘are we there yet?’ chorus with Real Time Traffic Information on the Sat-Nav, which equally finds the best route possible. Apple CarPlay and Android Connectivity means that no one will be short on tunes for a carpool karaoke either.

Top Levels Of Safety

With a slightly larger presence on the road, the compact SUV X3 comes with a host of great features to keep you and your younger passengers as safe as possible when out-and-about.

In case you’re unfamiliar, the Euro NCAP is an independent organisation to judge a car’s safety, producing yearly reports on all the latest models. Having reviewed the latest X3 model range, Euro NCAP declared the performance SUV to have a 5-star safety rating, with just its standard features intact.

As well as the usual safety mod-cons of a new car, including ISOFIX fittings for the really little ones, the X3 comes with Speed Assistance and Lane Assistance Systems as standard. That means your BMW X3 will automatically keep a look out for and avoid if possible, potential dangers on the road.

This definitely gives a driver peace of mind when they’re carrying precious cargo!

Prices for the new X3 start from £41,485 for the xDrive20i SE Petrol model.

At that figure, the X3 is definitely very good value for money, considering the SUV provides such high levels of practicality, comfort and luxury, combined with cutting-edge technology and great performance.

It’s incredibly hard to fault the BMW X3 – it’s a clear choice for families looking for a car that suits everyone’s needs.
