2015 BMW X3 officially unveiled

The 2015 BMW X3 has been officially unveiled, with its updated design and new engines, which will go on sale in the United States too, this year.

The 2015 BMW X3 is actually a facelifted version of the current model so if you were waiting for a new generation, you’re in for a big disappointed. The vehicle in question has been modestly revised and it can easily be differentiated thanks to its new front and rear bumpers, different headlights, revised front grille, redesigned side mirrors, different alloy wheels and several new exterior colors.

BMW is also offering the xLine package, if the standard vehicle isn’t enough for you, which will be coming with the metallic trim, with the underbody guards and the 18- or 19-inch alloy wheels, amongst others. The M Sport package will also become available for the model, with its aerodynamic body kit, with the shadow line trim, antharacite roof liner, sport seats, sport tuned suspension and 18- to 20-inch alloy wheels.

Changes made to the cabin of the updated BMW X3 are limited and they include the gloss black accents, the updated trim, the new cup holders, the revised upholstery, the iDrive controller with the integrated touchpad, the upgraded infotainment system, Smart Opener and several other features, which should make it more popular with its future customers.

As far as the engine lineup goes, a new generation of 2.0 liter four-cylinder diesel units are available, with 190 HP (140 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque in the xDrive20d. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes 8.1 seconds in this model. The sDrive18d is also coming with a 2.0L turbo diesel, but which is producing 150 HP (110 kW) and 360 Nm (265 lb-ft) of torque. Prices for the updated BMW X3 will start at 39,325 USD, over-seas, including the 925 USD destination charge.
