The X3 section on the BMW website has been updated some of the details of the upcoming SUV and it also has a section for to pre-book the car.
People who are waiting for this new bimmer can actually take a tour of the car ell before its launch on the website and if you like it then go ahead with booking a brand new one.
Priced well around Rs. 40 Lakh, the car is going to take on Audi Q5, Volvo XC60 and Land Rover Freelander 2. With a new codename F25, similar to the F10 of BMW 5 Series, this car is a considerably improved iteration of the older generation X3 and is different in a number of ways. The front fascia is all new and completely revised making it look refreshed when compared to the on-going X3.
Though no major changes have been adopted, except for making it more aerodynamic, a new all chrome kidney grille and corona rings headlamps on the front, the overall appearance is certainly similar. SO the front and rear profile have been tweaked as per the new design cues but the side profile is again pretty much the same, except for a nice BMW X1 resembling roofline.
Taking the soaring petrol prices as a matter of concern, the company will offer only two CRDI diesel engine options with the car which are as follows:
- BMW X3 xDrive 30d which is a straight six-cylinder diesel unit capable of producing a maximum of 258 bhp and
- BMW X3 xDrive20d which is a four cylinder diesel unit capable of developing of 184 bhp of maximum power.
The engines will be coupled to an 8-speed steptronic automatic transmission to get the best possible economy on road. On the inside the car comes equipped with all leather seats, new 8.8 inch iDrive system and a number of other features. On the technological end, the car sports BMW’s efficient dynamic brake regeneration system, better aerodynamics, BMW’s Damping control, Performance Control and Electromechanical Power Steering.
