A 4x4 that never goes off-road (or can't go off-road) is like buying a dog and barking yourself

X3,X5,X6 etc might as well just be rwd.
Horses for courses. You explained your preferences, and I explained mine. Neither of us are wrong, or right. There are buyers who value each set of preferences, and the new X3 is selling really well, so there must be something attractive about it.

This is a statement of fact, and is incorrect: "A 4x4 that never goes off-road (or can't go off-road) is like buying a dog and barking yourself"

There's a lot more to all wheel drive than off-roading. AWD offers better traction and stability in bad weather conditions, and especially snow and ice. That's the point.
