CAPACITY TO LIVE YOÚR LIFE.
With loads of flexible space, the BMW X3 is perfect for all trips. Its trunk expands from 27.6 cubic feet to 63.3 cubic feet when the rear seat is folded down—giving you multiple storage possibilities. And accessing your gear is easy wîth Comfort Access: simply wave your foot under the rear bumper to open the trunk.

DESIGNED TO INSPIRE.
A Panoramic Glass Moonroof is complemented by design elements that highlight the elegance of the X3. Stunning exterior colors, like Mineral Silver Metallic, leave a lasting impression on any road, while details like standard satin aluminum roof rails further amplify its sophisticated, yet sporty nature.

IMMERSE YOÚRSELF IN COMFORT.

The BMW X3 offers equal amounts of comfort and luxury. Every control is intuitively placed, including BMW ConnectedDrive features that come to life on the 8.8' Control Display. Additionally, the optional Nevada Leather upholstery is soft to the touch, but sturdy enough for the demands of everyday life.

MORE EYES ON THE ROAD.
Surround View gives you an all-around panoramic view of your surroundings in your Control Display, making it easier to see approaching traffic. Along wîth the top view camera, the road is also monitored by cameras in side-view mirrors, front bumper and behind the rear BMW badge.

KEEPS A SAFE DISTANCE.
Active Cruise Control wîth Stop and Go uses radars to maintain a safe distance between you and the vehicle ahead. If you're in danger of a collision, you'll receive a visual alert and the Brake Activation function will engage the brakes automatically.

PEACE OF MIND IN EVERY CONDITION.

xDrive, BMW's intelligent all-wheel drive system keeps you safe on slick or uneven roads. When wheel slip is detected, it intelligently redistributes power to the wheel wîth the most traction in milliseconds. Built wîth a rear-wheel bias, it gives you maximum traction and superior handling on all surfaces. Alternatively, the available sDrive makes for dynamic agility and a sporty drive.

POWERFÚL ENGINES

THE HEART OF EVERY X3

28i: BMW's mighty inline 4-cylinder TwinPower Turbo. Displacing just 2.0 liters, this 240-hp marvel generates 260 lb-ft of torque at just 1250 rpm, for potent thrust that kicks in right from the start and continues all the way up to 4800 rpm. Lightweight and smooth-running, it incorporates BMW's award-winning High Precision Direct Injection, Valvetronic and Double-VANOS technologies.
Available in: X3 sDrive28i, X3 xDrive28i

35i: BMW's inline 6-cylinder 3.0 liter engine features BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, combining High Precision direct fuel injection, Double-VANOS and Valvetronic variable intake technologies, and a twin-scroll turbocharger. The result: turbo lag is virtually eliminated. Peak torque of 300 lb-ft kicks in at 1200 rpm, pushing you back in your seat all the way to 5000 rpm, and a maximum output of 300 hp is reached at 5800 rpm.
Available in: X3 xDrive35i

Diesel: Featuring BMW's 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo Diesel 4-cylinder engine, it generates 180 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque, available from 1750 rpm. With an engine that accelerates the vehicle from 0-60mph in just under eight seconds and BMW Advanced Diesel technology making it a cleaner Diesel, the best of both worlds is possible.

Passenger cell wîth door anchoring system:
Includes reinforcing bars wîth hook-like members within each door. In a serious side collision, the bars hook the door to the body, locking them together for a more rigid passenger cell. When the pressure is released, the anchoring system disengages so doors can be opened.

Dynamic Stability Control (DSC):
Provides remarkable tenacity on slippery road surfaces. If the system senses over- or understeer, it modulates engine power and can apply brakes individually to help keep the vehicle under control and going in the intended direction.

It was back in 2003 that BMW founded the new mid-size Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) §egmènt wîth the launch of the X3. That means the BMW X3 has been a paragon of sporty dynamics, premium ambience and robust agility, coupled wîth low fuel consumption and emissions, for over 10 years now – racking up sales figures of more than one million units in the process. The second generation of the successful BMW X3 has made a compelling case for itself since its introduction in 2010, boasting the best interior and boot measurements and the greatest versatility in its class.

And now the new BMW X3 (fuel consumption combined: 8.3–4.7* l/100 km 34.0–60.1 mpg imp; CO2 emissions combined: 193–124* g/km) is set to build inexorably on its §egmènt leadership. A pair of new-generation diesel engines, producing more power but once again burning less fuel, serve to improve dynamic performance and reduce pollutant emissions. The exterior and interior design of the new BMW X3 reveal stylistic revisions and also add further depth to the car's practicality wîth detail solutions responding to customer requirements.

Dynamic appearance and exclusive ambience.
The new BMW X3 cuts a visually more powerful figure wîth its new, modified twin circular headlights (LED headlights are optional), a more eye-catching kidney grille, new front and rear bumpers, and exterior mirrors wîth integrated turn signal indicators – shining an even brighter spotlight on signature BMW X model design features. A high level of perceived quality and exclusivity also defines the interior of the new BMW X3. Chrome applications, a centre console wîth optional automatic climate control system in high-gloss black-panel look, and new cupholders wîth a sliding cover for the centre console underline the car's premium appearance. New exterior colours, upholstery designs, interior trim strips and light-alloy wheels enable even more refined individualisation. The new xLine equipment package, meanwhile, allows owners to lend greater emphasis still to the dynamic and robust SAV character of the BMW X3. And the Smart Opener for the automatic tailgate and storage package (both optional) further enhance the already impressive functionality of the BMW X3.

World premiere for the new 2.0-litre diesel unit wîth 140 kW/190 hp.
The new BMW X3 is available from launch wîth a choice of four diesel and three petrol engines, wîth outputs ranging from 110 kW/150 hp to 230 kW/313 hp. The state-of-the-art units wîth BMW TwinPower Turbo technology guarantee outstanding performance combined wîth low fuel consumption, and all meet the EÚ6 exhaust gas standard. At the same time, the output of the X3 xDrive20d (fuel consumption urban/extra-urban/combined: 5.8–5.4*/5.1–4.8*/5.4–5.0* l/100 km 48.7–52.3/55.4–58.9/52.3–56.5 mpg imp; CO2 emissions combined: 141–131* g/km), for example, rises from 135 kW/184 hp to 140 kW/190 hp, while the fuel consumption of the automatic version is 7.1 per cent lower than that of its predecessor. The BMW X3 xDrive20d, which gives this new 2.0-litre turbodiesel its global premiere, therefore sets the benchmark in its class. It is an achievement matched by the new 110 kW/150 hp BMW X3 sDrive18d (fuel consumption urban/extra-urban/combined: 5.8–5.4*/4.7–4.3*/5.1–4.7* l/100 km 48.7–52.3/60.1–65.7/55.4–60.1 mpg imp; CO2 emissions combined: 134–124* g/km) wîth classical rear-wheel drive and a six-speed manual gearbox. Likewise leading the way in their §egmènts are the BMW X3 xDrive28i (fuel consumption urban/extra-urban/combined: 9.3–8.7*/6.3–5.9*/7.4–7.0* l/100 km (30.4–32.4/44.8–47.8/38.2–40.3 mpg imp); CO2 emissions combined: 172–162* g/km) wîth 180 kW/245 hp and the BMW X3 xDrive35i (fuel consumption urban/extra-urban/combined: 10.7/6.9/8.3 l/100 km 26.4/40.9/34.0 mpg imp; CO2 emissions combined: 193 g/km) wîth 225 kW/306 hp.

BMW EfficientDynamics: driving pleasure and low fuel consumption.
The trailblazing BMW EfficientDynamics package of technology brings the Auto Start Stop function, coasting function, Brake Energy Regeneration and on-demand operation of ancillary units to the new BMW X3, resulting in the lowest fuel consumption and emissions in the §egmènt. In addition, fourth-generation low-rolling-resistance tyres make a significant contribution to the excellent environmental performance of the new BMW X3 by reducing CO2 emissions by 7 g/km.

BMW ConnectedDrive: driver assistance and infotainment.

The new BMW X3 advances the company's commitment to the link-up of driver, vehicle and outside world, an area in which BMW is an undisputed leader. Among the outstanding new features from BMW ConnectedDrive on board the BMW X3 are the iDrive Controller wîth integrated touchpad (for text input using finger movements), Parking Assistant, the full-colour BMW Head-Úp Display, the anti-dazzle High Beam Assistant and Driving Assistant Plus, including Lane Departure Warning, Active Cruise Control wîth Stop & Go function and preventive pedestrian protection.
