BMW X3 facelift might be launched on August 28

BMW X3 facelift might be launched on August 28

BMW might launch the facelifted version of the X3 on August 28. The refreshed 2015 X3 was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in February and is on sale in the global markets. 

The changes are marginal and the X3 now gets a completely redesigned kidney grille. The headlamps now join the grille and the angular bumpers at the front and rear give it a more aggressive and angular look. The ORVMs now get integrated turn signals and BMW also offers full LED headlights globally, which might be dropped from the list for India. 

It gets premium interiors with chrome accents, coverable cup holders and new panelling. The HVAC display is totally new and the optional navigation system has been replaced by a new re-engineered unit. 

The X3 gets the same TwinPower 2.0-litre diesel engine which has been tuned to offer more power and efficiency. The transmission will be an eight-speed ZF unit. The engine now churns out 187bhp and 400Nm of torque in the xDrive models (AWD) and 147bhp and 360Nm of torque in the sDrive. BMW may only offer it in a single engine option and we are most likely to get the X3 in the more powerful iteration with xDrive. 

2015 BMW X3

The competition in the luxury space is increasing by the day. Audi launched the A3 sedan at a jaw-dropping price and Mercedes is about to launch the GLA which will give them a considerable market share. In comparison BMW is still lagging behind, they have launched no new products this year except the new X5 and the rumoured M4. BMW has to pull up its sleeves and work on its product plan for India as the competition is surely turning up the heat now. How successful the X3 in India is anybody's guess and it has more to do with the number of launches this year than any numbers on the sales chart.
