Our BMW X3 Depreciation Analysis and Recommendations

Like all BMWs, the X3 depreciate A LOT, and the depreciation doesn't slow down either. While they score marginally better than the larger X5, you really need to love it to own it. Our money is with one of the Lexus SUVs, which will likely hold its value better, and be less costly to repair and maintain.

The 2015, 2014 & 2013 BMW X3 model years are currently the best values.

On average, expect to pay only 40% of the original cost with 58% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2015 X3. That gives it a Net Used Value score of 18.07 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2014 & 2013 X3 model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.

Own a 2015 BMW X3?

While we would advise holding onto this vehicle for a few years, that's not always the plan. Dealers have access to similar figures so they know that your vehicle has a low risk of depreciation.
