The new generation of the Bavarian compact crossover has existed for more than a year and the 2020 BMW X3 will represent the third generation year of the present model. Usually, we wouldn’t expect to see many changes in such a short period, but the following year is definitely going to bring one huge novelty. According to the latest reports, the hi-performance M version will be prepared to reach the market pretty soon. It will offer lots of alterations over the standard model, not just a stronger engine, but tons of other modifications as well.
This refers both to mechanical updates and lots of distinctive styling information, as well as on a unique list of standard equipment. On the other side, standard models must carry on in the exact same way. Count on a comfortable design and features. Of course, some normal novelties like new colors more standard gear looks possible.
2020 BMW X3 M Redesign
The most significant novelty for the 2020 BMW X3 will be a new hi-performance edition. The new model has been spotted on testings and a lot of novelties can be noticed quite easily. Of course, the central place is earmarked for a new engine. According to the most recent reports, this crossover will borrow the engine in the new M3 model. That would indicate a tuned version of a familiar 3.0-liter inline-six. Most reports suggest that a maximum output will between 450 and 470 horsepower.
Besides new engine, the 2020 BMW X3 M will include mechanical modifications as well. Of course, count on all those updates standard for”M” badged models and that contains things like new suspension, brakes, chassis reinforcements and a whole lot more. Naturally, there will be several visual upgrades as well. Count on a completely new body kit, new wheels, exhaust system and much more. The cottage will also be full of unique details, such as a new instrument cluster and a whole lot more.
We are just about to see a comfortable layout. The new model is significantly more efficient as well. Of course, there is also a new styling, which follows the company’s newest styling doctrine. In the very front, you will observe a well-known kidney grille, which is now just a little bit more womanly. The remaining part of the vehicle comes in a typical SUV manner. A good thing about this model is the roof line is really flat and that it ends with nearly vertical tailgate, which provides ample and helpful cargo area.
Interior Design and Features
The cottage will also continue in the exact same way. It is well-built, but many will complain about its dashboard design, which is rather simplistic, let’s say fairly blend. However, that doesn’t change the fact that all materials are soft on touch and feature hi-grade quality. Chairs are massive and supportive, excellent for extended trips. Despite we are speaking about a compact crossover, there is a fairly nice quantity of legroom in both rows. The rear seat is rather decent. This crossover can accommodate up to five passengers, but four adults appear like a perfect measure.
The cargo area is pretty generous, one of the biggest in the section. You can count on 29 cubic feet behind rear seats and 63 cubic feet of total capacity. The list of standard equipment is very impressive as well. Base models feature items like a 6.5-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, a USB port, a 12-speaker audio system etc.. Features like a panoramic moonroof, a 16-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, satellite radio, navigation, Wi-Fi hotspot, wireless device charging, and Apple CarPlay are also offered.
2020 BMW X3 Engine
We’ve got no doubt that two recognizable units will carry on to the following year. Base models will feature a recognizable 2.0-liter turbo-four engine that provides around 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. This is definitely enough electricity for decent performances.
Additionally, it marks some of the best fuel economy ratings in the class, around 23 mpg in the class and 30 mpg on the highway. If you want something model strong, a recognizable 3.0-liter inline-six will be from the offer as well. It provides about 355 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. Both engines are paired using an 8-speed automatic transmission.
Release Date and Price
When it comes to the price, we do not expect to see bigger changes compared to the current model, which begins at around 41.000 dollars
