2018 BMW X3 Is the New Ultimate Compact Crossover
The last time I reviewed the compact luxury X3 crossover from BMW I proclaimed it the best in its class. Recently I drove the all new third generation 2018 BMW X3 and despite the competition rising to the challenge of the Bavarians, BMW has seen to it that this model remains the class leader.

The X3 is built in Spartanburg, South Carolina, alongside siblings X4, X5, and X6 luxury crossovers.

The new X3 never failed to offer custodia cover samsung s10 adequate power whatever the driving situation and handling and comfort were above reproach.
