True story. Before the Nissan murano (or whatever) and the Lexus rx, the mainstream crossover didn't really exist.
I liked the original rx much better though.

I'd go with the X3, no question about it. The new models look amazing and the interior is quite a bit nicer. My wife wants one, too.

I think this will fit your needs more so than the x3 or fx35. Thank me later.

0-150mph in 10.x sec, just saying, thats probably gonna end up being your best bet. I'd just go with it.

My wife and I are currently in a similar market. We're looking at the FX, RX, Evoque, Q5, MDX, and SRX.

We looked at the X3, but it just doesn't do anything for my wife or I, and it seems like for similar money, you get more out of the other brands.
