|5.5 seconds. BMW's fiercest competitors in this vehicle's class can't hold a candle to this fuel-injected masterpiece, falling short in significant areas, such as acceleration and power.|
Though the 2012 BMW X3 is indeed an all wheel drive crossover, it has the power to perform like a sporty rear wheel powered vehicle. BMW's patented xDrive system is designed to send more than half of the X3's power to the rear wheels under normal driving conditions and can supply as much as 100 percent of that power to a specific axle when necessary. This type of capability is an incredibly valuable asset in inclement weather, as it drastically enhances traction and control on slick and unpredictable surfaces.
The 2012 BMW X3 comes with an advanced eight speed automatic transmission with the option to change to manual shift mode as the driver sees fit. Shifter paddles are mounted to the steering wheel for superior performance in acceleration and fuel efficiency, especially in long straightaways and highway situations. Standard anti-lock disc brakes are included on all four wheels for excellent stopping power under a variety of circumstances.
When it comes to options, the 2012 BMW X3 continues to excel, offering an abundance of amenities that only add to convenience and driver enjoyment. Choose your preferred interior upholstery, premium wheels and performance tires, and enjoy the option of a panoramic moonroof and a navigation system that responds quickly to your voice commands.
