It had solid selling records so far; unlikely we cannot say it had good critics. Someone said once in humorous way: “BMW X3 is nothing more than a license to print money”. This was taken seriously by the side of the company and as the years were passing, the car’s rating have become better and better and by now it has gotten serious competition such as Land Rover Discovery Sport, Audi Q5, Lexus NX and Porsche Macan.
Exterior of the new 2017 BMW X3 will feature many details that are going to be borrowed from X5 and X6. Everything will be done to look more stylish and aggressive in comparison to its predecessors. On the front there will be wide angular headlights that are stretching into a recognizable BMW’s two wing grille with vertically positioned ribs.
Size of the alloy wheels will probably be 17 or 18 inches. Dimensions of the new BMW X3 are expected to remain unchanged, but according to the rumors there will be reducing of the weight by 200 pounds thanks to lightweight material combination of aluminum, carbon fiber and high-strength steel.
Not so much information has been provided for the interior of the new 2017 BMW X3. However, relatively reliable information is that the seats are going to be redesigned in the way to be slimmer and lighter, adjustable at its position, with heating and ventilation. Also the back row of the seats will be adjustable to provide more loading space in the case of necessary. There are no information yet about infotainment system, safety options, entertainment system and other features that are part of the equipment, but hopefully, we expect it will relatively approve expectations of the market.
