The X3 of the next generation of BMW has been spotted again. The current X3 is one of the strongest in the segment, offering fast performance, nice interior, good functionality and reasonable price / performance ratio. Arriving in the showrooms in 2017, probably as a model of 2018, the new BMW X3 will add technology, will grow lighter and probably offers more interior space.
Bmw X3 2018 Styling
A thick layer of camouflage disguises most of the features of the new car, but we can spot a pair of larger and straighter kidney grilles looking through the swirling vinyl wrap. The headlamps appear to be more square than the units of the outgoing model, while an inverted air intake replaces the more aggressive angular element of the outgoing car.
The new X3’s brakelights appear larger and more aggressive than those fitted to the old car, while the more distant pillars have a more distinct curvature over the rear wheels. The high mounted reflectors of the outgoing model and the roof mounted spoiler appear to have been maintained mainly unchanged, however. The M40i bearer models should feature a much more aggressive style than the standard car described here and could boast larger alloy wheels and larger end caps.
2017 BMW X3 Interior
The cabin of the new X3 should be inspired by the new 7 Series. An independent touch screen infotainment system should sit above the dashboard, while a simpler and more minimalist center console should also feature . The outgoing X3 is considerably behind on many rivals in terms of material quality. Help fill this gap. The high performance M40i should feature more support seats, carbon fiber fittings and M badges as well.
