One of our favorite BMW SAVs is the entry-level in the U.
S. family of X3 vehicles, the xDrive28i.
In 2011, BMW announced that will replace the inline-six in the 28i model with the new N20 2.0 liter turbocharged unit that delivers similar power with less fuel consumption. The 2013 xDrive28i returns 28 mpg highway/21 city and an EPA combined rating of 24 mpg compared with 19/26/21 from the xDrive35i.
In its class of midsize premium Sports Activity Vehicles, BMW X3 28i competes against similar offerings from Audi, Q5 2.0T and even with the new Range Rover Evoque.
