The 2018 BMW X3 is heading your way with a little more "M"

The All-NEW 2018 BMW X3 is on the Way! 

 
The all-new 2018 BMW X3 is on it's next chapter in its success story with a more striking, dynamic design language, powerful yet efficient drive systems with a luxurious appeal. Almost fifteen years after its initial launch, the X3 continues to hold strong today as one of the best handling vehicles in its segment. Like all members of the successful X family, it blends standout-driving qualities on any terrain with unrestricted everyday usabilityNow, the X3 enters its third generation with a new exterior design, an M Performance model, aerodynamic and chassis upgrades, and new technologies including gesture controls.

BMW has announced two trim levels for the new X3: xDrive30i and M40i. The first model comes paired with a 2.0-liter twin-turbo inline-four producing 248 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, up 8 hp from the outgoing xDrive28i. 

With this engine, the X3 can hit 60 mph in 6 seconds and a top speed of 130 mph, according to BMW estimates. The M40i ushers in the first M Performance variant for the X3, and it packs a 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-six with 355 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. That’s up 55 hp and 69 lb-ft from the most powerful X3 from the 2017 model year. Thanks to the added power, BMW expects the model to sprint to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds. 

 
The X3 boasts new standard features such as three-zone automatic climate control that adds separate temperature controls to the back seat area. Meanwhile, reclining for the 40:20:40 seat backs can now be adjusted individually. 

Optional features include front ventilated seats, new ambient lighting, a now 75 percent larger head-up display, and Luxury and M Sport packages that bring a host of cosmetic upgrades to the interior and exterior. A factory-installed trailer hitch is available for the first time. The model also introduces gesture controls allowing customers to change the volume or perform other tasks directed toward the 10.25-inch touchscreen. Gesture controls first debuted on the 7 Series and later trickled down to the 5 Series.

 
The 2018 BMW X3 will join the X4, X5, and X6 at BMW’s production facility in Spartanburg, South Carolina. We can expect the X3 to roll into dealerships this November and we can't wait!
