The BMW X3 is an SUV that combines luxury and technology to superior effect. The car was first introduced in 2003 and was preceded by the xActivity – a concept car introduced at the Detroit Auto Show. The latest 2013 is smoother when compared to the earlier models.
The entertainment controls can be easily manipulated using the iDrive feature. Buying even a used BMW X3 is indeed a matter of pride, but make sure you do some research to find out the insurance rates in your area.
Insuring the X3 will cost you an average annual rate of $900 in Maine, which is the lowest in the country, while it costs $2371 in Michigan, which is the highest. The median price of this car is the lowest ($14,325) in Kansas and the highest ($41,995) in Idaho.
If you consider the median price as well as the insurance costs, the five best states to own a BMW X3 are –
|State||Insurance Average ($)||Median Price ($)||Insurance Percentage (%)|
The insurance percentage in the above table is the percentage of the median price that is spent on insurance.
Iowa, Ohio, Kansas, Washington and Illinois are the states in which both the insurance average and median price of the X3 are relatively low.
If you live in one of the states where the price of the car is very high, you can buy it from another state and have it shipped home.
It is possible to lower your insurance premiums by convincing your car insurance company that you are committed to its security. Parking your car in a private garage instead of parking it on the driveway is one step in that direction. Installing an anti-theft device will also help lower your premiums.
