Exterior

The exterior remains the same for 2009, and the X3 retains its awkward angles, disjointed taillights and odd lower bodywork. It's not unattractive, but it sure isn't as stylish as Mercedes' new GLK350, Audi's Q5 or the new Volvo XC60, which actually turned heads when I tested it recently.
