As it is well known BMW X3 is a concept of compact crossover focused on the premium class. The car will compete with such models as Mercedes GLC and Audi Q5.

It is known for sure that the German crossover is designed on a modular platform CLAR, which helped to significantly reduce the weight of the machine. More information will be known only this year, when the novelty will be presented officially. However, there is confidence that the open sale of the X3 will also start in the second half of 2017, if not earlier. According to preliminary information of the foreign professionals, in the engine compartment of the new German crossover there is a three-liter turbocharged engine producing 431 horsepower, the version X3 M will get this motor as well. Also it is assumed that the company will develop a 100% electric version of the BMW X3.
