Practical both on and off road, the BMW X3 is fully equipped for the most diverse driving demands, combining everything you need for wherever your day takes you.”
The BMW X3 has been reinterpreted with a striking design language, featuring a compelling front with a boldly enhanced distinctive double kidney grille. Fully Adaptive LED headlights and LED fog lamps featuring the new hexagonal design ensure a prominent stance on any road. At the rear, LED expressive taillights combined with a low-slung roof spoiler and exhaust tailpipes on both sides in chrome to make for a powerful conclusion.
