The BMW X3 has been given a fresh new-look including subtle design cues taken from the X5 and a tweaked diesel line-up improving performance, emission and economy.
On the exterior, the X3 gets new twin circular headlights, with the option of full LED and a pair of larger more prominent BMW kidney grilles. BMW connoisseurs will notice a tweaked rear bumper, new exterior mirrors and integrated turn signals which all add to a more handsome stance. On the inside, the facelifted X3 will offer four new upholstery colours to choose from, a revised centre console with a high gloss black panel display, and new interior trim strips to suit your individuality. A new trim level – the xLine – brings extra interior and exterior trim, plus bespoke 18-inch alloy wheels, along with existing SE and M Sport packs.
From launch, the BMW X3 will be available in two wheel drive 2.0-litre diesel engine sDrive18d, and four wheel drive xDrive20d. The two wheel drive diesel engine emits 9g/km less CO2 than the previous model which returns 124g/km and averages 60.1mpg while the four wheel drive xDrive20d averages 56.5mpg and 131g/km. Buyers also have options for the xDrive30d and the very powerful xDrive35d propelling the X3 forward with 313hp and 630 Nm of torque. A new 8-speed automatic transmission brings two additional gear ratios at no weight penalty allowing for smooth shifting and better efficiency with the tallest 8th gear conceived for quiet cruising, reduced fuel consumption and emissions.
To raise everyday functionality, all BMW X3 models are fitted with a 6.5” iDrive display and iDrive Controller, new innovative features such as the Smart Opener makes accessing the load compartment easier with just a short movement of the foot below the rear bumper which opens or closes the tailgate automatically. A storage package can be bought to include a reversible floor section, folding box, partition elements and a range of different luggage nets and a 40:20:40 split folding rear seat ensemble for maximum storage flexibility.
