One of the top ten contenders fighting for the title of the 2012 Motor Trend Sport/Utility of the Year is the 2012 BMW X3. This athletic crossover meets the needs of all of its drivers.
This BMW crossover vehicle is built with a sporty exterior that matches its powerful 300 horsepower. The 2012 X3’s V8 engine mimics the performance of a race car, achieving a speed of 60 mph in 5.7 seconds. Its performance during a figure-eight track session and real-world canyon run proved to be very impressive and handled all obstacles well. In addition to its power, the X3 also achieved the highest average fuel efficiency ratings at 19.6 mpg.
With the 2012 BMW X3’s athletic exterior, drivers might not expect to have that comfortable of a ride. However, with its spacious cabin and rear passenger seats, all passengers can cruise in luxury. This spacious vehicle can also hold all of your athletic gear from golf clubs and soccer balls to coolers and tents.
According to the editors of the Motor Trend Staff, “For all its highs and lows, the X3 is a good crossover that will fulfill the utilitarian and athletic needs of its customers.” To see if the 2012 BMW X3 edges the competition to earn the title of the 2012 Motor Trend Sport/Utility of the Year, check online at http://wot.motortrend.com/ on October 25th.
