After the last-year redesign, it is about time to see a hi-performance version of this compact crossover. The second generation of the X3 came last year and this year is about to bring 2019 BMW X3 M. This will be the first to see an M-badged version of the popular crossover. Of course, it will come heavily based on the standard model, but also with plenty of modifications. This refers to both aesthetics and mechanics. Expect various chassis upgrades, like new suspension, brakes, and similar things. On the other side, the visual appearance will be improved with things like new bumpers, side skirts, wheels and much more. Finally, expect a new engine under the hood of BMW X3 M. Most likely, it will be a familiar six-cylinder unit. Expect to see the new model in the next few months.
2019 BMW X3 M Design
When it comes to base design characteristics, the 2019 BMW X3 M will be heavily based on standard models. The new generation of this compact SUV came last year, so there is no need for bigger changes at the moment. Still, we will see various modifications that will provide better performances. In terms of mechanics, we are about to see a complete M package of upgrades. This means new suspension, brakes and a few other things. The visual appearance will also suffer a few modifications. While the base design is about to remain the same, we will see familiar M upgrades. This mainly refers to a unique body kit, which will include new bumpers, side skirts, rear spoiler, and similar things. Also, expect to see a unique wheels design.
How will 2019 BMW X3 M look on the inside
In this aspect, don’t expect too many changes compared to standard models. Performance versions of this manufacturer have never been characterized by many distinctive details and 2019 BMW X3 M won’t be an exception. A completely new cabin came last year, with lots of novelties. However, all the changes are evolutionary. This brand is well-known for its conservative approach, so this was expected. Of course, there is an upgraded dashboard, which besides new styling elements is also highlighted by plenty of tech features. Of course, the most notable is a large touchscreen at the center, but you can count on many other things, like power seats, dual-zone climate control, smartphone integration, and many other things.
2019 BMW X3 M Engine
While standard models of this crossover feature an efficient 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, this version will come with the company’s famous inline-six design. The model is named 2019 BMW X3 M40i and features a 3.0-liter engine that is good for about 355 horsepower and 370 pound-feet of torque. The new engine will come in a pair with a new eight-speed M Steptronic automatic transmission, which will provide quick shifting and smooth ride. Such a combination should provide pretty amazing performances. Expect 0-60 time in about five seconds, while top speed should be electronically limited to 155 miles per hour. Compared to the base engine, this one will be pretty thirsty, so don’t count on some spectacular 2019 BMW X3 M mpg ratings.
