Exterior - Can bold statements and subtle details be combined? An apparent paradox finds its resolution in the exterior design of the X3. White indicators provide the finishing touch to the expressive front. Electrically adjustable, the exterior mirrors are the same colour as the body paintwork, as is the roof spoiler, which adds a final flourish to the powerful silhouette of the X3.
Interior - Everything in the right place, where you need it to be: BMW's excellent understanding of ergonomic design means that the control elements are within easy reach. Functionality does not come at any aesthetic cost however, as harmonious colours are combined with pleasing materials and beautifully designed forms. Practical considerations are not overlooked either: the interior of the X3 offers near-unlimited storage space which can be used flexibly for loads of every size
Space - Life offers so much - you're an active person, so why not have it all? The variable interior space of the BMW X3 certainly offers more than enough room for every ambition. It only takes a moment to increase its stowage space from 480 to an amazing 1,560 litres. An optional bike rack is available for transporting mountain bikes and racers, and you can request storage compartments, luggage nets and parcel rails in order to move you and your cargo in style
Engines of the BMW X3
The X3 comes with high-performance motorisation in the form of BMW six-cylinder in-line engines. The dynamic three-litre petrol engine is characterised by its powerful acceleration and quiet running. And if you particularly value torque and economical fuel consumption, then you'll be inspired by the pull of the diesel engine. Whatever engine you prefer, you can be sure of the BMW X3's immense reserves of strength.
Driving the BMW X3
Because a Sports Activity Vehicle has to match your ambitions, every element of the BMW X3's chassis was designed to deliver maximum traction for maximum performance. It combines an optimised double-joint spring strut front axle with a central-arm rear axle for sure-footed road-holding. Driving stability is enhanced by the even distribution of weight between both axles. Driver assistants, different transmissions and innovations such as the xDrive all-wheel drive system work together for greater traction, which makes for characteristic BMW performance on all surfaces.
Safety features on the BMW X3
Flexibility is a hallmark of the X3, but its safety standards never vary. The self-supporting chassis of this premium SAV displays exceptional stability and torsional rigidity, while its separately reinforced side profiles and high-strength occupant cell guarantee maximum passenger protection. In the event of an impact, force is largely absorbed in precisely defined areas. Airbags and comprehensive seat safety systems complete the safety package in the BMW X3.
