2005 BMW X3 Overview

Reviewers were a bit lackluster on BMW's second version of its X3. While the ride and performance was as reliable and as smooth as the debut 2004, critics felt a certain lack of luxury and had trouble justify a price well above $40,000 when fully outfitted.

Even the ride was called "a bit rough," but there was an elegant interior and a double-pane moon roof that was popular enough to win back some points for the X3.
