The new BMW X3 has been launched in India at a BMW dealership in Noida. The new BMW X3 is locally produced at the BMW Plant Chennai in a diesel variant and is now available at BMW dealerships across India.
Philipp von Sahr, President, BMW Group India said, “The new BMW X3 is the embodiment of independence. Whether it’s on the way to work, or on a weekend. With family or for some quality time alone. It is built for both the small and big challenges that each day brings. Its sporting character is revealed in an extremely dynamic driving experience with impressive efficiency and fascinating design that emphasises the athletic character of the new BMW X3.”
The new BMW X3 is available for the first time in a new design scheme: the BMW xLine equipment package which brings out the robust and dynamic Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) character even more prominently.
The BMW X3 xDrive 20d is the first model to feature the latest-generation diesel engine with outstanding performance and low fuel consumption. The new generation of all-aluminium 2.0 litre diesel engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology uses common rail direct injection with solenoid valve injectors and works with increased injection pressure. This pushes the engine output to 140 kW/190 hp with the maximum torque of 400 Nm. The increase in performance cuts the vehicle’s 0 to 100 km/h acceleration to just 8.1 seconds with a top speed of 210 km/h.
