BMW Working on a Remodeled X3 for a Possible Detroit Launch
|   Thursday, October 17, 2013
BMW's latest face lifted X3 has been spotted testing for the first time and if rumors are expected to be believed, this vehicle will be similar to its bigger cousin – the X4 – in terms of dimensions and basic specifications. Technical specifications are yet to be unveiled although it is apparent that BMW wished to stick to its original designing strategy, with this vehicle. Although a prototype was spotted in Munich, its rear and side ends were heavily camouflaged, hence final designs were not clear.


BMW is yet to reveal prices and other details regarding interior and it is premature to comment on any particulars at the moment. We however know that the company is planning on using a 1.8 liter diesel engine displacing 143 BHP, on this vehicle while a higher end 2.0 liter diesel engine displacing 184 BHP is likely to be available.

However, the icing on the cake is a 3.0 liter diesel engine displacing 313 BHP. This is the range topper and should produce decent amounts of power. As with all M lineup vehicles, we expect this vehicle to sport a base price tag of £28,970, although high end models should have their own range of accessories and price.

BMW is expected to keep its lineup of accessories simple on this machine, although we are likely to get chromed wheels, chrome tailpipes along with sports body kit on this vehicle. Interior on this vehicle is expected to have received a serious overhaul and this should be a grand move considering all the previous models featuring similar trims. BMW is offering advanced connectivity via ConnectedDrive and this provides Bluetooth and USD connectivity along with latest technology, which are yet to be formally announced.

BMW is also working closely on a prototype for the X4 Crossover and we are set to receive a new version of the X4 fall January 2014. Exterior modifications have also been made although we were not able to scrutinize the details carefully. LED Daytime Running Lights were observed closely along with minor changes to the front grille and side panels.

Black M trim is a specialty on this model, which preserves the imminent sense of style and class on this vehicle. Sporty attitude has been maintained which gives this vehicle a very modern edge and feel. Aggressive rear and front bumpers along with other external panels have been added to this vehicle and this gives it quite the feel and aesthetic appeal which it needs at times.

Although this vehicle is suited for family needs, BMW is offering customizable options which could transport it to the luxury SUV segment as well. On road tests are currently being run and we expect this vehicle to be available in China and Europe simultaneously, although we are yet to see if BMW will bring in significant changes to any of these models, based on market tradition and trends. We will keep updating as we get latest news. Hence, stay tuned and keep visiting for more news and updates.
