Since second generation of the BMW X3 was a big success, Bavarian car manufacturer decided not to change its popular luxury crossover. 2015 BMW X3 will suffer only minor upgrades, but don’t expect any major design changes. New X3 will have refreshed front and rear bumpers and its lights design will be symbolically modernized. Main reason for this poor list of changes is the fact that BMW X3 received full redesign for previous model year, so there is no need to enhance any particular area.
BMW updated the engines that empower the X3 last year, so we don’t expect lot of moderations for its newest 2015 BMW X3. Turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine will be available as base engine, and it will empower xDrive28i model with 240 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Beside this engine, for U.S. market 2015 BMW X3 xDrive35i will be offered with a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 that generates 300 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque. Both of these engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive, while their fuel economy rates differ. 2015 BMW X3 xDrive28i model is rated at 21 mpg city/28 mpg highway and 24 mpg combined, while the X3 xDrive35i is rated at 19 mpg city/26 mpg highway and 21 mpg combined. Another variant of the latest BMW X# is mentioned for U.S. customers, it is possible that BMW will launch a new M Performance model or even a high-performance X3 M.
Although 2015 BMW X3 will not be changed much on the outside, we expect some improvements on the interior. Bavarian car manufacturer is one of the best-selling car manufacturers of luxury vehicles, so it has to match to highest standards in the automotive world. New X3 will have an updated navigation system, a refined menu for the iDrive system and more voice-activated controls. We also expect that BMW includes LED headlights in the offer for 2015 BMW X3. Debut of the 2015 BMW X3 will probably be in next few months, by the end of the year, and it supposed to go on sale sometime during the summer of 2014.
