BMW X3 New

BMW X3 Overview

The BMW X3 entered into a new generation last year. The G01 X3 moves to a new platform while retaining the unmistakable styling of the mid-size crossover. BMW will showcase the new-gen X3 at the 2018 Auto Expo. When launched in India, the new X3 will take the CKD route to the country. The prices will remain on par with the current generation so expect a price tag between Rs 50 – 60 lakhs. It will continue to rival the likes of Mercedes-Benz GLC, Audi Q3 and the yet-to-be-launched Volvo XC40.

Appearance wise, the X3 carries an evolutionary design with some subtle cosmetic updates. So, the characteristic kidney grille is now bigger while the roofline has become higher at the back. The tail lights are more angular and wrap-around with new lighting signature. It is based on a newer platform, weighing 55 kilograms less than its predecessor. At 4.7-metres in length, with a wheelbase of 2.8-metres, the new X3 also grows in dimensions. The 550 litre boot space can be expanded to 1600 litres by folding down the 40:20:40 rear seats.

On the inside, the subtle changes continue, but the overall cabin carries forward the typical BMW style. What’s new is the floating display for the infotainment system which has now become wider and bigger. Ventilated front and rear seats are optional while dual-zone climate control is now a standard feature.

Engine wise, the new X3 gets the usual range of diesel and petrol powertrains that was offered previously. So there is a 2.0-litre diesel and petrol engine. The latter is available in the xDrive 20i trim. There is a bigger 3.0-litre diesel as well which will be offered in the xDrive 30d trim. However, the biggest addition is an M-spec model which has been dubbed the M40i. It is offered with a 3.0-litre twin-turbo petrol straight-six 360bhp/500Nm and has been mated to an M-spec eight-speed AT.
