The third generation of the BMW X3 follows in its predecessors’ tyre tracks by combining rugged off-road looks with a sporting presence. Its familiar proportions, including very short front and rear overhangs, shine the spotlight on the perfect 50:50 distribution of weight between the front and rear axle.

The potent dynamic intent of the All-New BMW X3 xDrive20d xLine is highlighted by a three-dimensional kidney grille and foglamps featuring a hexagonal design for the first time on a BMW X model.

The xLine variant and the range of BMW Individual items allow the appearance of the
All-New BMW X3 xDrive20d xLine to be adapted even more precisely to the customer’s individual tastes. The model comes with 19-inch light alloy wheels in Y-spoke style.

The interior of the All-New BMW X3 xDrive20d xLine has an unbeatable finish and material quality, and is even classier and more luxurious than its predecessor.
