The X3 3.0si can sprint from 0-60 mph in 6.9 seconds with its 6-speed manual, or 7.1 seconds with its 6-speed STEPTRONIC automatic transmission. Complementing the stellar performance is an impressive fuel economy rating as the X3 3.0si carries an EPA estimate of 17 mpg City / 24 mpg Highway with the automatic or 16 City / 23 Highway with manual when measured with the new 2008 EPA standards. Not many luxury-compact sport-utility can match these mileage and acceleration figures.
The 2008 X3 3.0si boasts BMW's Valvetronic 3.0-liter aluminum/magnesium 6-cylinder engine. With 260 horsepower and 225 lb-ft. of torque on tap, the new X3 3.0si makes it one of the quickest 6-cylinder SUV's in the segment—6.9 seconds with its 6-speed manual or 7.1 seconds with its new 6-speed STEPTRONIC automatic. BMW's exclusive Valvetronic technology ensures that the X3 not only provides exceptional acceleration, but excellent fuel economy as well.
