BMW X3 Sports Activity Vehicle is reportedly being scheduled for a launch during the mid of 2011 and the confirmation we get comes from the launch of BMW 6 Series convertible sedan launch in Udaipur. On this very special occasion when the official introduction of 6 series took place, the company unhesitatingly announced the prices of the upcoming X3.
Although no launch date has been declared for the SUV yet, we expect it to come after mid of May 2011. The car is stunning in looks and impressive in performance and will race against amazing cars like Volvo XC60, Audi Q5 and Land Rover Freelander 2.
With the new crossover down the line, the company’s expectations are high. The car will be offered with two engine options, one being a xDrive25i petrol and the other xDrive20d diesel. Surprisingly the company will retain the current engines for the X3 and will not introduce the latest engines owing to the new excise duty of 30% imposed by the Indian Government on CKD units.
