2006 BMW X3 Real Gas Mileage: Cons
2006 4dr SUV 225-horsepower 3.0L I6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
City driving fuel economy is not bad for an SUV. I average around 16MPG battling heavy traffic and my need for “enjoying using the accelerator”. Highway mileage is not so great. Cruising at 70-80MPH returns around 22MPG. see full BMW X3 review
