Serving Milwaukee, WI

While the 2023 BMW X3 and the X4 are both classified as compact luxury crossovers, they are individualized models that deliver different experiences for drivers and passengers. At BMW of Milwaukee North, our primary goal is to get you behind the wheel of a crossover you love. We are eager to support your deep review of these models online and in person with a test drive.


The sophisticated BMW X3 is offered in three trims. The first two trims pull 248 horsepower from a four-cylinder, turbocharged 2.0-liter engine. The top X3 trim has a mild-hybrid, V6, 3.0-liter engine with 382 horsepower. These engines are both paired with an eight-speed auto transmission. The base trim has rear-wheel drive, and the upper two trims come with standard all-wheel drive. The X3’s Dynamic Handling package adds adaptive steering, adaptive suspension dampers, and upgraded brakes.

The sporty BMW X4 has two trims. The base trim is equipped with the same 248-horsepower engine and eight-speed auto transmission that is offered with the X3, and it comes with all-wheel drive. The top X4 trim has the same 382-horsepower engine. Optional X4 packages give you a sport suspension, driving modes, and larger brake rotors.


The 2023 BMW X3 has classy styling, a tall cabin, and a premium accentuation that flows through the door panels. Its headlights sit at a slight angle and show a pair of curved LED light ribbons. The kidney-style grille has a regal quality with vertical bars and a chrome surround. The 2023 BMW X4 is longer and wider than the X4. It also sits lower to the ground and has a fastback-like profile. Its sides have similar accentuation, and a crisp, lower accent line supports the door panels. Near the front fenders, a small air vent elevates the X4’s athleticism. The grille is smaller, and the front bumper and air vents are more prominent.


These BMW models are loaded with an extensive selection of desired features. Their shared features include wireless smart device app connections, front and rear parking sensors, a powered hands-free liftgate, a navigation system, a wireless hotspot, a push-button ignition, a tri-zone climate management system, remote monitoring, a panoramic sunroof, a digital instrument panel, adaptive cruise control, heated seats in both rows, a head-up display, automated parking, remote engine start, a surround-view, and others.
