The BMW X3 begins its third generation in 2018 with a host of updates inside and out, but let’s start with the refreshed engines.
BMW only announced two versions of its smallest SUV and no diesel. The X3 xDrive30i will get the company’s 2.0-liter turbo four, now making 248 hp, up from 240 hp. The X3 M40i will get the bigger 3.0-liter turbo straight six, now making 355 hp and 369 lb-ft, up from 300 hp in the 2017 model. That M40i will be good for a 4.6-second sprint to 60 mph and a top speed of 155 mph. Both get an eight-speed automatic transmission with shift paddles, though the M car is tuned more aggressively and comes with launch control. All-wheel drive is standard across the range.
M options abound with the M Sport Package: An M Aerodynamic kit, performance (run-flat) tires, M Sports Suspension and Adaptive M Suspension, all of which will make your X3 M40i move more like an M3. And optional M Sport Brakes will help it stop like one. Dynamic Damper Control is available on the 30i model and standard on the M40i.
The dimensions of the new X3 SAV (sports activity vehicle -- seriously, that's what BMW calls it), are similar to the outgoing model, but the wheelbase has been extended by 2.2 inches. Adaptive LED headlights are optional. And, for the first time, buyers can get a factory-installed trailer hitch. Time to dust that JetSki off!
Standard looks include satin and silver matte elements with 18-inch Y-spoke wheels; the Luxury pack adds chrome kidney grille bars, two-tone front and rear bumpers and upgraded dash materials inside.
Elsewhere in the cabin buyers get three-zone climate control, split-folding rear seats with recline adjustments and an optional panoramic glass moonroof. Cargo volume is about the same: 28.7 cubic feet with the seats up, 62.7 with the seats down.
Like the 2017 model, the new X3 uses a double-joint spring/strut front axle and a five-link rear suspension. A few aluminum bits were added to reduce unsprung mass, and BMW says steering feel “benefits from the improved axle kinematics and the Electric Power Steering system with Servotronic.” We’ll be the judge of that -- though as far as electric power steering systems go, BMW is among the best.
We don’t expect to see too many of these at the trail, but just in case, the X3 has a water-fording depth of 19.6 inches, 8 inches of ground clearance, an approach angle of 23.1 degrees, departure angle of 21.4 degrees and a breakover angle of 17.4 degrees. That's not quite Jeep Wrangler territory, but it's better than your average mall runner.
The 2018 BMW X3 goes on sale this November; pricing has yet to be announced. The last X3 xDrive started about $43,000 with destination, so figure somewhere in that neighborhood.This content is created and maintained by a third party, and imported onto this page to help users provide their email addresses.
