The X3, part of BMW's lineup since 2004, is a midsize SUV with seating up to 5. Having better than average EPA (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and pollution. The X3 has offered Android Auto since 2021 and Apple CarPlay since 2017. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it can easily bypass mud and snow. BMW offers a 4-year, 50,000-mile basic/powertrain warranty on its lineup.
We estimate that the 2017 BMW X3 has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0375% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 4.2835%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0375% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 4.2835% chance of being injured.
