2016 BMW X3 Changes | xDrive35i-sDrive28i X3

Car Junkie - 2016 BMW X3 Changes. For the 2016 changes, however, we all expect there will still be four trim levels offered, though even better more. Everything in needs from a luxury compact crossover, this 5-passenger 5-door sweet car seems to be significantly qualified. With some extra open-armed features, practically folded rear seats with commodious headroom and delightfully designed body style - the next-generation X3 will presumably impress fans more than it has.

The base version is likely to still be presented in rear-wheel-drive mode - powered by the same 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine as well as its current 8-speed handy automatic transmission to keep going. The engine has generated 240 horsepower with 260 pound feet of torque.
