Thanks. The major difference is the size. 2013 X3 is almost identical to 2001 X5 that I had. May be the height is just couple of inches shorter. 2013 X3 is more powerful than both 2005 X3 and 2001 X5. The size of the tires gained about an inch from 17" to 18". The other major change is in the technology. With push button start, engine start/stop, USB connection for iPod/MP3/Flash drive, effortless transmission stick, auto tailgate, improved mpg (x3 does 18.5 mpg average) and heating/AC/radio adjustments without knobs all are the most noticeable improvements. The only downside is the design of the rear windows ave reduced visibility when compared to the previous generation of X3.
