At the Geneva International Motor Show 2018-2019, the German automaker BMW has brought a number of its new products, among which was an updated crossover X3 2018-2019 model year.
This vehicle enjoys a good demand in the world, therefore we recommend to get to know him better.
Let’s start with the look, as there has not been the same.
Exterior model is made in the same design concept as the X5 crossover appearance.
More specifically, the German engineers have extended headlights and modified the false radiator grille, so the car has received a more modern appearance and is very close to “a single standard BMW», which the company established in 2013 year.
Also note the updated front and rear bumpers, a different design of wheel disks, turn signals in the exterior mirrors and a pair of new exterior colors.
In general, after the restyling crossover BMW X3 began to look more modern, dynamic and cute, which will undoubtedly further enhance its popularity.

After this restyling crossover length increased to 465.7 centimeters (an increase of 0.9 cm).
Other dimensions remained unchanged.
Thus, the width of the model excluding exterior mirrors is 188.1 cm, height of the machine rests on the marker 166.1 cm and a wheelbase length is 281 cm. Clearance height is 21.2 centimeters.
In the five-seater cabin of the updated BMW X3 changes have occurred, the layout remained the same.
However, new finishing materials, as well as the larger display multimedia complex in the center console.
In addition, the car has got increasingly popular touchpad to control a joystick, which is located on the right side of the gear lever.
Here, perhaps, and all changes in the cabin, glaring.
The luggage compartment of the crossover BMW X3 still remain, the minimum useful volume is limited to a mark of 550 liters, and its capacity after the transformation of the cabin is increased to a maximum of 1600 liters.

More specifically, the two less powerful engines have been modernized and are available in the new version.
So now in the rear-wheel modification sDrive18d car is equipped with no 143-horsepower engine, a turbocharged 4-cylinder 2-liter unit, developing 150 horsepower at 4000 rpm and maximum torque of 360 Newton-meters, available in the range 1500 – 2250 rpm.

Besides the version sDrive18d all BMW X3 crossover modification in the “base” have the xDrive all-wheel drive with electronically controlled multi-plate clutch, which connects the front axle.
Speaking of the chassis, after restyling changes are imperceptible.

As before, all vehicle wheels are equipped with disc brakes with ventilation function.
The assistance offered system ABS, BAS and EBD.
