Two words, Aveek. Rotax, Austria.
ya the X3 is cheaper bcos its built in Austria by a company called Magna Steyr on contract. Also its based on the 3 series. Hence X3. Also its smaller and has less features than the X5. The X5 is also more powerful than the X3.

het vip3r, i didnt understand the part about Rotax. I dont think the X3 uses a Rotax engine. The only "BMW" thats not a BMW is the BMW F650 which uses a Rotax engine and is a "badged-only" BMW.

The current X3 is a generation ahead of the X5. The next X5 (based on the new 5) will be much bigger with 3 row seating and then it all starts to make sense.
