BMW is currently developing lots of interesting new and high-end models, especially in the SUV sector, where the X7 is set to arrive next year, while the G01 X3, also seen in recent spy photos, is getting ready for official debut this autumn.
According to recent reports, the G01 BMW X3 will arrive in European dealerships this autumn, as a 2018 MY, the exquisite SUV standing on the company`s new rear-wheel drive flexible modular architecture, meaning that the 100 kg weight loss will add more comfort, increase performance and less fuel-consumption. This is the same architecture that will also be found on the new X5 and X7.
Overall, the design language of the new 2018 G01 X3 will be carry over from the current X3, yet will adopt a more aggressive look thanks to the revised styling lines.
We are dealing here with a more aggressive attitude highlighted by the new front bumper, lower roofline at the rear, one-piece tailgate, all contributing to the car`s increased aerodynamics. Also, the car`s new design is also adjusted to meet the new pedestrian safety regulations.
As for the interior, this will be more high-tech and fully-tweaked with the latest gadgetries, adding increase space and better materials all-around.
Under the hood, expect to see rather the same engines as in the 3-Series, including the brand-new 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine, as well as a wide range of four-cylinder units, and plug-in hybrids. We should also wait for the long-rumored full-electric X3 by the end of the decade.
In case you were also wondering what would happen to the X3 M more potent version, well there is good news as well. We should see it on the market with a more wider and aggressive styling package, with more performance as well.
