The German based automaker BMW has recently announced that the X3 midsize crossover has just received a new entry-level version in the United Kingdom, the X3 sDrive18d.
According to the car manufacturer, the BMW X3 sDrive18d is actually the first UK-destined version of the German midsize crossover to use rear-wheel driver but, even so, the model isn’t what we might call cheap, after becoming available for its future customers at a starting price of 28,850 GBP, on the road. BMW says that future owners of the BMW X3 sDrive18d in the United Kingdom will have to choose between two trim levels, the SE and the M Sport.
Power to the new entry-level version of the BMW X3 in the United Kingdom, the sDrive18d, is being provided by a 2.0 liter four-cylinder TwinPower turbocharged diesel engine, which is developing a total output of 143 BHP and it has a peak torque of 266 lb-ft (360 Nm) of torque, available between 1,750 and 2,500 rpm. The BMW X3 sDrive18d can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 9.9 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 195 km/h (121 mph). The model is returning 55.4 mpg UK (5.1 liters / 100 km).
