2009 BMW X3 Review

There is very little about the 2009 BMW X3 that hasn't already been covered by Cars.com; the 2007 model that Kelsey Mays reviewed is essentially the same vehicle that's offered for 2009. What has changed, however, is the X3's competition, as a number of new luxury SUVs have debuted in the intervening years that BMW now has to contend with.

While the car's pros and cons haven't changed much, the X3 is showing its age in terms of technology features — especially when compared with newcomers that best it in both price and style.
