Product Overview

The facelifted BMW X3 M (F97) Competition is the high-performance variant of the facelifted BMW G01 X3 compact crossover. It features BMW's high-output S58 inline-6 turbocharged petrol engine paired to an 8-speed ZF 8HP automatic transmission, sending power to all wheels via the M xDrive AWD system with the driving dynamics of RWD.
As usually the case, the new X3 M Competition has a more aggressive exterior design compared to the base model. It comes with BMW M compound brakes and 21-inch staggered wheels as standard.
Compared to the pre-facelift model, the facelifted X3 M has larger kidney grilles and a tweaked rear aprons and new paint finishes.
Inside, the interior has been revamped, with a free-standing 12.3" Control Display being the main user interface for the infotainment system. Modern driver assist techs are also available.
The facelifted X3 M F97 is unveiled alongside the facelifted X4 M F98.
