If recent test mules all-covered in camouflage doubted the existence of the upcoming G02 BMW X3, some recent spy photos from BMW have spotted the model while still playing in the snow, and confirmed that this is indeed the future X3 SUV from the German carmaker.
It seems that BMW is heavily testing the car`s driving capabilities out in the cold weather in Sweden, wearing less camouflage, which is a clear indication that it is closer to its production form. It will be eventually unveiled in June, with public display starting at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. Dealerships will be able to have it in exactly one year from now.
Once it will arrive on the market, the new G01 BMW X4 will stand on the company`s new CLAR (Clustert Architecture) platform, meaning that it will come with more lightweight materials allowing for better performance figures yet low fuel-consumption and CO3 emissions.
The model is also set to be wider, with increase space inside and the latest array of engines under the hood. Speaking of performance, it will arrive with plenty of new engines, including the new B48 2.0-liter turbo flat-four mill, or the higher B58 3.0-liter turbo inline straight six.
From a visual standpoint, the new G01 BMW X3 is going to come with plenty of new styling cues, overall highlighting the more aggressive and sportier design, which is a characteristic for all new BMW models.
There are also other features that highlight the car`s extraordinary driving capabilities, like the Driving Experience Control function which increase the car`s dynamic on difficult weather conditions like snow and rain.
Also, the SUV feels safer on the road thanks to the updated Dynamic Stability Control (SDC) or Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), adding as well a plethora of new mechanics, like updated steering or suspension system. We expect full details to emerge this spring.
