BMW X3 Compact Crossover (G01 facelift)

NEX score 83%

Product Overview

The facelifted 3rd-gen BMW X3 (G01) is a compact, two-row crossover. This mid-cycle refresh includes a range of cosmetic changes and technology upgrades, and some of its engines have slightly different outputs in order to comply with the new Euro 6d standard.
Some of the key exterior changes include the new BMW kidney grille and flatter headlights, while BMW Laser Light is also available. The front and rear bumpers are also tweaked, if nothing else, to distinguish the vehicle from the pre-facelift model.
As has been the case with BMWs in the last decade, the X3 pairs its various turbocharged petrol and diesel engines with the ZF 8HP automatic transmission. All-wheel drive (xDrive) is standard on all vehicles.
Inside, all petrol engines now use 48V starter-generator in a mild hybrid format. The interior has been revamped, with a free-standing 10.25" Control Display being the main user interface for the infotainment system. A 12.3" option is available as an upgrade, too. Modern driver assist techs are also available.
The facelifted X3 G01 is unveiled alongside the facelifted X4 G02.
