More Information

Xenon lamps do not use in fog lights: constantly changing the configuration of the discharge violates the strictly calculated geometry of the light beam, and the headlight does not perform its direct function. For fog lights it is better to use only LED bulbs.

BMW X3 Generations

BMW X3 18 Generation (2021)

Android Auto smartphone connectivity joins Apple CarPlay, and satellite radio is also now standard. Newly standard active safety features include blind-spot warning and lane departure warning.

BMW X3 17 Generation (2020)

LED headlights with cornering lights, navigation, and a digital instrument cluster are now standard. A new high-performance X3 M also joins the lineup.

BMW X3 16 Generation (2019)

A new rear-wheel-drive sDrive30i trim level joins the lineup, powered by the same turbocharged four-cylinder engine that’s in the all-wheel-drive xDrive30i trim. New standard active safety features include forward collision warning with daytime pedestrian detection and low-speed automatic emergency braking. Front and rear parking sensors are also now standard.

BMW X3 15 Generation (2018)

Redesigned for 2018, the BMW X3 has standard all-wheel drive and comes in four-cylinder (xDrive30i) and six-cylinder (M40i) configurations. We drove a well-optioned X3 xDrive30i.

BMW X3 14 Generation (2017)

Wireless smartphone charging and a Wi-Fi hotspot are available in the 2017 BMW X3.

BMW X3 13 Generation (2016)

For 2016, there are no significant changes.

BMW X3 12 Generation (2015)

In 2015, the most significant style change was the headlights of the X3. They use the same structure as the headlights of the larger X5. BMW reports new front and rear bumpers, as well as headlights, grille, and side mirrors. LED headlights are optional. BMW reports that the overall length has increased by only 1 centimeter.

BMW X3 11 Generation (2014)

2014, new standard features include a universal garage-door opener, auto-dimming side and rearview mirrors, a 40/20/40-split folding rear seat, more storage compartments, and BMW’s Assist eCall emergency communication system with a 10-year subscription. The available navigation system gets the latest version of iDrive, which includes a text-input touchpad on the knob controller.

BMW X3 10 Generation (2013)

The base X3 xDrive28i is powered by a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 240 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. Additional features include energy-saving auto-start technology, standard liftgate, 18-inch wheels, and a chrome exhaust tip for the xDrive28i, and a driver assistance package that includes automatic high beam headlights, lane departure warning, and, on the xDrive35i, a head-up display.

BMW X3 9 Generation (2012)

An M Sport Package includes body-colored bumpers and side skirts, specific wheels, and a sport-tuned suspension. BMW Applications, which allows a variety of iPhone apps to run through the iDrive system, is a $250 option.

BMW X3 8 Generation (2011)

The 2011 BMW X3 is still the small luxury crossover of choice for driving enthusiasts, but its substantially more forgiving suspension tuning should make the new version far more appealing.

BMW X3 7 Generation (2010)

While the car’s pros and cons haven’t changed much, the X3 is showing its age in terms of technology features — especially when compared with newcomers that best it in both price and style.

BMW X3 6 Generation (2009)

The exterior remains the same for 2009, and the X3 retains its awkward angles, disjointed taillights, and odd lower bodywork. It’s not unattractive, but it sure isn’t as stylish as Mercedes’ new GLK350, Audi’s Q5, or the new Volvo XC60, which actually turned heads when I tested it recently.

BMW X3 5 Generation (2008)

2008 an updated 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine goes under the hood. Packed with BMW’s latest innovations, the engine churns out 260 horsepower and 225 pounds-feet of torque — a 15 percent increase in horsepower over the 2006 X3’s engine (hence the change in name from X3 3.0i to X3 3.0si).

BMW X3 4 Generation (2007)

The aging X3 stays fresh for 2007 thanks to a zippier engine, a new automatic transmission, and modest styling changes. Some shoppers may be put off by the new transmission, which muffs its way through slower speeds, but between the masterful handling and high-quality cabin, there’s enough to like to justify the price.

BMW X3 3 Generation (2006)

The X3 2.5i equipped with a 2.5-liter engine has been discontinued for the 2006 model year. The X3 3.0i gains body-colored bumpers. The Sport Package includes full body color on side skirts and bumpers, plus a new three-spoke sports steering wheel. Window trim and a twin kidney-shaped grille are chrome-plated.

BMW X3 2 Generation (2005)

Audio systems became MP3-compatible for 2005. An automatic transmission was a no-cost option for the 3.0i, which got new chrome-plated vertical grille slats and a standard dual-panel Panorama moon roof.

BMW X3 1 Generation (2004)

The X3’s powertrains are similar to those in 3 Series sedans and wagons: 2.5-liter and 3.0-liter inline-six-cylinder engines that produce 184 and 225 horsepower, respectively. Either a six-speed manual or five-speed Steptronic automatic transmission may be installed. Placing the front driveshaft so that it extends through the oil sump is intended to give the X3 a low center of gravity and minimize body roll.
