In recent years, the US luxury automotive buyers have shifted their preferences from sedans to SUVs, with SUVs on pace to outsell sedans. BMW has taken note of this market trend and has recently introduced its newly redesigned 2018 X3 SUV. The all-new BMW X3 features 8 inches of ground clearance for navigating conditions from sand to snow, with plenty of margin for steep sections.

Let's take a comparative look at the 2018 BMX X3 versus the Inifiniti QX60 3.5 AWD to see which vehicle will best meet your everyday needs.
