The new X3 model, code-name F25, is quite different from its older brother and differences start to show once you head down the road behind its wheel, as Eric Peters from National Motorists Association Blog found out.
The F25 is quite bigger than the E83 X3. Actually, the current X3 grew so much that it's almost as big as the first X5, the E53. Another important change is the base model.

If for the E83, the cheapest model for the US market was the 3-liter powered one, for the F25 you'll get a 4-cylinder, 2-liter N20 engine with the roughly same amount of power (240 HP) and even more torque (260 lb-ft vs 220 lb-ft).

Furthermore, the fuel consumption figures dropped a bit, even though the new X3 is bigger. The F25 has a combined fuel consumption of 31 mpg (7.6 l/100km). Considering the new model comes with xDrive transmission, ECO driving mode and start/stop functions as standard, we're looking at a pretty good deal here.

Driving the X3 down the road you'll experience the many improvement the car has gone through and you definitely won't sense any kind of lack of power, even in the tightest and most abrupt turns.

For further info and a more detailed review check out what Eric had to say, in his automotive column for the NMA.
