Mat’s been in America test-driving the BMW X3M & X4M! These all new SUVs are M editions of the family-friend X3 & X4, with the aim of bringing more competition to the Alfa Stelvio QV & Mercedes GLC 63! There’s no doubting the performance under the engine, but don’t expect either to come cheap… the X3M starts from around £74,000!! But do you think they’re worthy of that price tag?

Join Mat for his latest in-depth review to find out!
