2017 BMW X3 digitally rendered

2017 BMW X3 digitally rendered

The facelift of BMW’s popular mid-sized SUV, the X3, has been digitally rendered, based on the spy shots of the car. The rendering indicates that the new X3 will feature a revolutionary design for the front fascia, quite different from the ones we have seen in BMW SUVs, so far.

Internally called G01, the new X3 will be built around the rear-wheel-drive CLAD platform, which will also underpin a few sedans in the German manufacturer’s future line-up. Though the kidney grille has been retained, it is flanked by new headlamps integrating LED DRLs, on both sides. The bonnet sports sharp creases, which give the car a muscular look.

The new X3’s engine line-up will be similar to the one in the current model. New additions to the X3 range will include a plug-in hybrid variant and a performance oriented ‘M’ model. The X3M 40i will be powered by a 3.0-litre inline six engine, producing in excess of 340bhp, while the hybrid model will get an electric motor packing 90 horsepower, to assist the 240bhp turbocharged four-pot engine.

The new X3 is expected to go on sale by the second half of 2016, as a 2017 model. It will rival other mid-sized five-seater SUVs like the Audi Q5 and the Volvo XC60.
