Here at our Knoxville, TN BMW dealership, our selection of new BMW Sports Activity Vehicles, or SAVs as they're more commonly referred to, is practically second to none. But if you asked our team of BMW sales experts which model is most popular with drivers from Sevierville to Oak Ridge, TN these days, the new BMW X3 and its sibling, the BMW X3 M, would consistently top the lineup. Though it's on the smaller end of the BMW X model spectrum, the new BMW X3 boasts charisma that vastly outsizes its stature, coupled with uncompromising BMW performance that'll have you looking forward to every minute behind the wheel.

Reach out to our team today if you'd like to take the new BMW X3 for a test drive.


Now, the new BMW X3 may fill the role of the compact Sports Activity Vehicle in the BMW X Model lineup, but don't mistake that compact moniker for a lack of power and a middling dedication to performance. In fact, when it comes to raw horsepower and torque output, the BMW X3 easily eclipses many larger competitors without the sizable curbside footprint, making it the perfect car for those looking to get more out of their time on the roads of the greater Knoxville, TN area. In fact, with standard 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque from its BMW TwinPower Turbo engine, the new BMW X3 is quite a stout performer in a pinch. Plus, while front-wheel drive is standard, you can opt for available BMW xDrive all-wheel drive if you wish to take your travels off the beaten path from time to time with this athletic new SAV.


Slip into the cabin of the new BMW X3 and you'll find it replete with all the features and amenities that you'd expect of a BMW with true luxury bearing. On hot summer days, the BMW X3 keeps you and your passengers cool with standard tri-zone automatic climate control. On top of that, plush Sensatec upholstery boasts the look, feel, and durability of real leather without the concerns of sun-bleaching and discoloration over time. And with a 12-speaker premium audio system, you can liven up your commute to work in nearby Sevierville with your favorite podcasts and streaming music.


If you're looking for a small SAV that prioritizes safety, rest assured you'll find what you're looking for in the new BMW X3. From blind-spot monitoring to lane departure warning and frontal collision mitigation and lane departure warning, the new BMW X3 is a much safer ride than many of its rivals.

How does the new BMW X3 M compare to the BMW X3?


Much like many of the new BMW models in our portfolio, the new BMW X3 is on the very cutting edge with its tech and amenities. Inside the cabin, you'll find the latest version of the BMW iDrive infotainment system, featuring a 10.25-inch touchscreen display, an integrated Wi-Fi Hotspot, and onboard navigation. Plus, you can connect wirelessly with the system via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, eliminating the need to clutter up your cabin with needless cords.

The primary differences between these two models is power. The BMW X3 M40i delivers up to 382 horsepower with its 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine. Additionally, you'll find that this model offers some seriously upgraded equipment with all leather upholstery, features like a wireless charging pad for compatible mobile phones, heated front and rear seating, and much more.

The New BMW X3 is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+

Knoxville area shoppers looking for a safe vehicle need look no further than the new BMW X3. After concluding its most recent round of testing on the BMW X3, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has awarded it with its highest honor: the Top Safety Pick+. The requirements are strict: the vehicle must perform at a minimum level of Good across all tests, with even more rigid requirements regarding front crash prevention. Furthermore, the vehicle must perform at the Advanced or Superior level when IIHS simulates a collision with another vehicle or collision with a pedestrian. Demanding - but Oak Ridge customers can rest assured that the BMW X3 meets and exceeds these expectations.

Headlight safety is paramount when the IIHS tests vehicles. The BMW X3 needed a minimum score of Acceptable - it scored Good, with the IIHS praising the standard high-beam assistant. The test was trivial to the BMW X3 and its standard adaptive LED headlights and programmable LED daytime running lights.

Shoppers around Maryville, TN, may be impressed that the BMW X3 managed to avoid a collision at all tested speeds with other vehicles and pedestrians. Tested from speeds of 12 mph and 25 mph, it stopped in time to avoid a crossing child, crossing adult, and parallel adult. The parallel adult simulates an adult human walking on the road facing away from traffic. It's clear that the BMW X3 earned its Superior rating in these tests - and that Sevierville shoppers searching for the safest possible SAV have found it with the BMW X3.

The new BMW X3 comes with an impressive host of standard safety tech that you'll use daily - like blind-spot monitoring and lane-keep assistance. Shop confidently, knowing that even in the worst-case scenario, this vehicle will do a great job keeping its occupants safe.
